About the Documentary

Dear Diary, I left Afghanistan a year ago yesterday and I don't feel like having sex with my husband in Kansas tonight cuz he woke me up from a flashback where I saw Tim's arm lying in the sand.

SERVICE, the film, portrays the courage of several women veterans as they transition from active duty to their civilian lives. We see the horrific traumas they faced, their invisible as well as physical injuries and all their challenges in receiving benefits and care. We follow them through the large and small accomplishments they work mightily to achieve.

From the deserts of Afghanistan to rural Tennessee, from Iraq to New York City, we watch these women wrestle with prosthetics, homelessness, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Military Sexual Trauma. The documentary is told through their voices as they speak from their kitchens, bedrooms, grocery stores and therapy sessions. Their pictures and videos shot in Iraq and Afghanistan speak volumes.

The film is part of a much larger project. Through robust social media, SERVICE continues supporting women through open and closed Facebook groups where women can exchange information, find friendship and share solutions that have changed their lives.

Women compose 14% of today's military forces. That number is expected to double in 10 years. Service introduces the issues faced by this wave of mothers, daughters and sisters as they return home. We want to wake up a sleeping civilian population to the challenges women face.

The project continues

Although the documentary is finished, the project is alive and growing. We would like to know what challenges you face and solutions you find. Listen to our podcasts or join our open Facebook group and become our fan.
