“Service: When Women Come Marching Home is a portrait of the courage of several women veterans transitioning from active duty to civilian lives. Having experienced horrific traumas, the women are challenged with both physical and mental injuries, and difficulties in receiving benefits and care.

From the deserts of Afghanistan to rural Tennessee, from Iraq to New York City, these women wrestle with prosthetics, homelessness, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Military Sexual Trauma. Their pictures and videos shot in Iraq and Afghanistan speak volumes. Told through their voices during everyday life in kitchens, grocery stores and even therapy sessions, the documentary is a wake-up call to the unknowing civilian population to the challenges female veterans face returning from duty.”
I belong to a Facebook group with the same name as the new documentary film, “Service: When Women Come Marching Home.”  My knowledge of women in the military was limited prior to tuning in many months ago.  Since then, I have gotten to know several of the women veterans and activists who join the conversation, and have been allowed to post my own complementary blog and website.  I can’t think of a more robust, educational, and interactive reference and resource to follow women in the military or as veterans adjusting to civilian life.  The team of professionals who manage this FB site and participated in the production of the documentary film, have won acclaim and brought much needed attention to the challenges of women in the military, including the tragedy connected with Military Sexual Trauma.  The film is now available on the Worldwide Web and other media outlets for all to see and learn.  I am very proud of the courage of so many women who have come forth to help us all understand the realities and challenges women face while serving America..
