“No Wine Left Behind” is a short film by Kevin Gordon about the difficulties veterans face when they transition from military to civilian life. It is a film that should have no problems gaining attention throughout our country since the president has called an end to the Iraq war come 2012. Around 50,000 U.S. troops will return home; while many will continue to serve in the military, others will find themselves jobless and even homeless.
“No Wine Left Behind” is a film that shows camaraderie among veterans still exists even after separating from the military. When Josh and his fellow veterans came home, they learned in order to make it in difficult economic times, working together once again would be the best option. They share stories of hard times, reflect on serving in the military and seeing combat, but also share ideas on how to begin bringing in profits from their wine business.
These veterans go back to what they know best, working together to accomplish a goal. The veterans of Lavish Laines have started new lives as civilians and together with each others support have taken on a new challenge. Lavish Laines Winery is located in the beautiful Livermore Valley in California, where these veterans now call home. As these veterans perfect the skill of wine making, they have already perfected the skill of inspiring others. These veterans are an inspiration to so many, but most importantly to other veterans who also find themselves facing tough times as they transition from military to civilian life.
“No Wine Left Behind” has achieved their goal of raising distribution funds to get this great film out into the world.
However you can still donate to further help get this film off its feet by connecting to Kickstarter.
