Service: When Women Come Marching Home
Women make up 15 percent of today's military. That number is expected to double in 10 years. This film highlights the resourcefulness of seven women who represent the first wave of mothers, daughters and sisters returning home from the frontless wars of Iraq and Afghanistan. Portraying the courage of women veterans as they transition from active duty to their civilian lives, this powerful film describes the traumas they have faced, the inadequate care they often receive on return, and the accomplishments they strive to achieve.
