A Documentary In The Making
We're Talking It Up!
Marty Klein, the producer and director of the Why Can’t We Serve documentary film project, gave a presentation on July 26 at Mountain View Studio in Woodstock, NY. He showed the first 12 minutes of the film and then took questions from the audience. “With this film and public support, we hope to help reduce the number of veteran suicides that take place every day in our country," he said. "It’s an ongoing tragedy.” Marty also took to the airwaves recently to promote the documentary project and the July 14 Benefit Concert (see below). On Saturday morning, July 1, Marty and Charlotte Tusch were interviewed by Shayne Galo on WKNY-AM, 1490, in Kingston, NY. On Monday, July 3, Marty was accompanied by Bill Forte, chairman of the Kingston Veterans Association, as they were interviewed by Scott Harrington on WGHQ-AM, 920, also in Kingston.

The Americans with Disabilities Act requires all major businesses and corporations to hire people with disabilities. This applies to most government agencies as well, with one glaring exception—the U.S. military, which is not required to comply with the ADA.
Author, disability activist, and blind Air Force veteran Marty Klein has started a fundraising campaign to produce a feature-length documentary film, to be called “Why Can’t We Serve.” The goal is to help shift the military from being behind the times with regard to all people with disabilities, toward a more inclusive position that no longer discriminates.
This worthy project is endorsed by a growing group of forward-thinking organizations and individuals, including:
