Planned Film Project to Tell Story of One Sailor's Fight for His Veteran's Rights

This is a proposed feature film project based on the true story of Harvey Ray Lucas, a radiation-stricken veteran who fought against his untimely death from radiation exposure from the ship on which he served.

Lucas (and after his death his family) fought the Department of Veterans Affairs in a 38-year court case. The family’s passion, tenacity and steadfast desire to fight for the rights of the American veteran defied the odds.
