Cumberland County Shows Documentary Exploring Veterans’ Challenges

Feb 01, 2024


FAYETTEVILLE, NC Cumberland County Government is partnering with the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners (NCACC) to show The Veteran’s Battlefield, the newest documentary from NCACC’s 100 Strong Productions.

The screening will take place on Feb. 8 at 6 p.m. in the Crown Ballroom, 1960 Coliseum Dr., Fayetteville, NC. A Veteran Resources Information Fair will be held prior to the screening at 5 p.m. in the Ballroom and a panel discussion will follow. 


The Veteran’s Battlefield is a documentary that explores veterans' challenges in North Carolina and how counties and residents can best support our veteran population. North Carolina is home to around 700,000 veterans and has the eighth-largest veteran population in the nation. Fort Liberty is in Cumberland County and has the third largest veterans population among all 100 counties behind only Wake and Mecklenburg, with more than 52,000 veterans calling Cumberland County home.

Veterans face a wide range of challenges that can seem insurmountable. The Veteran’s Battlefield highlights these challenges and how county Veteran Service Officers and community leaders are working to support veterans.

The documentary showing is free and open to the public. Light snacks will be available. Registration is encouraged but optional. If you plan to attend, please confirm by going online here.


Cumberland County Government is hosting this event in partnership with the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners. County Commissioners, local stakeholders and organizations will distribute information and discuss veteran services and support.
