22-The Unforgotten Soldier
Written and directed by Sam Medina, 22-The Unforgotten Soldier follows two US Marine Corps veterans trying not to become part of the statistic of 22 suicides per day. The main character is 40-year-old Daniel Hernandes, who was left wheelchair-bound after being injured during combat in Afghanistan.

A portion of the money used to produce the film was obtained through an IndieGoGo campaign, and according to Medina, the primary objective is to raise awareness about the difficulties veterans face upon returning to civilian life.
According to a study by the Department of Veterans Affairs, over 65,000 veterans have died by suicide since 2010. Its 2019 National Veteran Suicide Prevention Annual Report found the veteran suicide rate was 1.5 times that of non-veterans.
