On August 20 at 7:00 PM, the acclaimed journalist, documentarian, and Truro denizen returns to show portions of his soon-to-be released film, The Last Patrol. The film is a reflection and conversation about the difficulty soldiers face in disengaging from war and reverting to "normal life," and the struggles of
conscience they inevitably have to confront, issues of paramount concern to Mr. Junger. See Highland Evenings
