Filmmaker Sébastien Paquet provides us with a visual tour as Jonathan Davis narrates his personal experience at Ramstein and passion for supporting the troops. WOUNDED WARRIORS starts off with Davis getting a tour of a C130J Hercules Aircraft from Airmen of the 37th Airlift Squadron and an explosives demonstration from the 886th Civil Engineer Squadron Explosive Ordnance Disposal Flight. Next, he visits Landstuhl Regional Medical Center (LRMC) where he meets with soldiers as well as a United States Embassy representative injured in Iraq and Afghanistan to thank them for the sacrifices they have given.
Produced by MSgt Jocelin Borisow, Installation Emergency Manager at Ramstein AB, for Suspended Motion Productions, WOUNDED WARRIORS captures a glimpse of Davis’ unique understanding of what emotional challenges wounded warriors go through which drives his desire to get involved and do more for the brave men and women that have answered our nation’s call.
