Casey Affleck is an Academy Award Winner and starred in Manchester By the Sea, Gone Baby Gone, and other major films. This July he is bringing his directorial debut to one of the most military populated regions, Tampa, FL. His work is impressive and the Academy of United States Veterans in partnership with Ranger Up are honored to host his directorial debut, Light of My Life at the historic Tampa Theatre this upcoming July, 24, 2019. Affleck pours his time into philanthropic work and increasingly immersing into the military community. He joined AUSV as the 2019 Mental Health Award presenter and care for our veterans is a high priority for him. This is not a war movie, but it shares elements of survival that our Service Members will relate to.
