Colt Ford Shines a Light on PTSD in 12-Minute Mini-Movie, “Workin’ On”

workin' on.jpg

“Workin’ On,” a powerful 12-minute mini-movie featuring Colt Ford’s hit song which shines a spotlight on one of the biggest health crises facing soldiers returning from deployment: post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, makes its digital debut on NRACountry.com today. Click above to view the video. A private screening of the mini-movie was held earlier this year at the NRA Convention in Nashville.

“There’s men and women that are suffering and struggling with PTSD, that have given everything for us to be able to have the freedoms that we do. And because we can’t see it, a lot of times it goes unnoticed,” Ford said. “So, I just wanted to try and make as big a deal of it as possible, so we can get some help. During this holiday season, let’s not forget the men and women who sacrificed so much for our country.”

The music video version of “Workin’ On” featuring both Colt Ford and U.S. Navy SEAL (Ret.), Marcus Luttrell, has garnered nearly 2 million views raising much-needed awareness of this life-altering condition which affects 20 percent of all soldiers deployed within the last six years. From firefighters, to community service workers to the general public, PTSD can affect anyone. The song, “Workin’ On,” was included on Ford’s #2 Billboard’s Country Album, “Thanks For Listening.”

Thankfully, the Lone Survivor Foundation, created by U.S. Navy SEAL (Ret.) Marcus Luttrell, is there to help. Luttrell founded the LSF after he watched several of his fellow soldiers die during Operation Redwing in Afghanistan in 2007.

The film was produced by Colt Ford and Hideout Pictures.
