"Thank You For Your Service" is an Iraq war film.As countless veterans, many of them wounded, sit for hours waiting to talk to someone, Adam Schumann (Miles Teller) tries to arrange treatment for himself and his buddy, both suffering from PTSD. When Schumann finally gets to the window, he's told he'll get to see a doctor – in six to nine months.In a quick rooftop battle scene, a sniper shoots a fellow soldier is in the head.Adam is ostensibly in the best shape.Always so watchable, Teller gives a thoughtful, solid performance as Adam, and Koale is especially moving as a maimed man who is still grateful for his army service and wants to rejoin his unit.In the end what will stick with you most are those depressing bureaucracy scenes, shining a light into the ordeal returning soldiers face trying to reintegrate into a society that doesn't quite know how to absorb them.
