In Service presents the experiences of Western Pennsylvanians serving in Iraq as soldiers and government officials, and those recording events as journalists. The film weaves first-hand video recordings, interviews, and still photography as individuals from the region recount their tales unfolding on an international stage.

At the foreground are authentic voices, images, and narratives, and the tales coalesce as a cohesive narrative of how world events affect local communities and touch the lives of those just down the street from ourselves.

(Ralph Vituccio; 2009)
