My name is Jo Throckmorton, and I am happy to finally release for free viewing the World War I documentary film, "Over There: Hoosier Heroes of the Great War."  Although I am releasing the film, we still have NOT met the funding needs to pay all of those who have worked on this project and we are asking for continued support.  If you watch the film and like it - please consider making a donation to help pay all those who worked so hard to bring you this story.  


Without the support we have received to date, we would NOT have been able to get this far.  Thank you to all who have given to the project.  We are, however, continuing to ask for your help. Any amount is significant. W e are NOT a non-profit organization, but a third-party fiscal agent handles all accounting, and we can provide transparent financial reporting upon request.  Thank You!
