From the beginning of war, those thrust onto the field of battle have gone through their own levels of mental trauma. ACRONYM, a new documentary film, takes a detailed and personal look at those who are experiencing, suffering from and living with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD. The film takes an in-depth look at veterans from every U.S. conflict since WWII and the common bond they share: the demons only war can bring. To watch the entire documentary, CLICK HERE now.

ACRONYM features extensive interviews with veterans from WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Gulf Wars I & II, Somalia, Iraq and Afghanistan. For some WWII veterans, they are only now dealing with their PTSD - some 70 years after serving. Three generations of soldiers later, veterans just recently out of the war theater can relate to their predecessors. They share a common bond. These are stories that must be told and ACRONYM will be an incredibly touching portrayal of life with PTSD.

Doug Hanes and Transtar Entertainment Company co-produced ACRONYM with Mountain Time Media, LLC, a producer of award-winning documentary films.

Jerry attempts to break the UMCA record for a single-rider, non-stop bike race across the State of Colorado. Beginning at the Utah border, Jerry rides along Highway 50, across the western slope of Colorado, over the Continental Divide, and onto the eastern plains of Colorado, covering 468 miles on his trek to the Kansas border. He must overcome mechanical issues, road construction, bad weather and sleep deprivation. Will he break the record? Will he even finish the race?
