Major Capers, The Legend of Team Broadminded
Pierre Claeyssens Veterans Foundation is proud to present a private screening of this incredible documentary which portrays the extraordinary true life story of Major James Capers, Jr., an American hero, who persevered through adversity during a time of civil unrest. After 50 classified/top secret missions and being wounded 19 times, Capers rose to become one of the most decorated Force Recon Marines in history. Capers and his Force Recon team, aptly named "Team Broadminded" overcame stereotypes and seemingly impossible missions.
Capers' story begins childhood, as the son of a sharecropper, through his service as a Force Recon Marine in Vietnam to covert operations in Africa and Eastern Europe. The documentary features raw and honest audio recordings made by Capers in the battlefield, including recently declassified film and photographs that transport the viewer deep into the heart of a faithful warrior, through once classified or top secret missions.
Q&A with the filmmaker and Major Capers immediately following the movie. All proceeds support supporting veterans and active duty members in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties as well as preserving military history and legacy.
