Last November, we alerted you to keep an eye out for “Where Soldiers Come From,” a superb documentary that was about to make its broadcast debut on PBS.  Heather Courtney’s film follows four friends from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula as they enlist in the National Guard, endure a harrowing stint in Afghanistan, and deal with a variety of challenges as they readjust to civilian life.

We’re happy to report that, earlier this month, the film was awarded a well-deserved News and Documentary Emmy in the category “Outstanding Continuing Coverage of a News Story, Long Form.” It is currently available on DVD or digital download, and well worth catching.
