Please mark your calendars! You, your classes, and the general public are invited to participate!
To kick off the 5th Annual “In My Boots” in spring 2018, a series of veteran-affairs-related films will be shown.
Through the group, “Paws & Effect,” The DMACC Boone Campus received a substantial grant enabling the showing of these top quality- highly honored and acclaimed --films. We want to strongly encourage not only campus participation, but participation from the entire DMACC district and the whole Boone Community.

About the film
Almost Sunrise follows two Iraq veterans, Tom Voss and Anthony Anderson, both tormented by depression for years after they returned home and pushed to the edge of suicide. The two embark on an extraordinary journey – a 2,700 mile walk across the country from Wisconsin to California, in order to reflect on their haunting experiences of war and to ultimately, save themselves.
