Basin PBS previewed the Independent Lens film: Served Like a Girl yesterday evening at the Hangar 25 Air Museum. The film provided a candid look at a shared sisterhood to help the rising number of homeless women veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, and suffer from PTSD, sexual abuse, and other traumas. By entering into the “Ms. Veteran America” competition, these amazing ladies unexpectedly come full circle in a quest for healing and hope.
Valerie Gross, a Navy Veteran who served nearly 6 years as a Hospital Corpsman, which is an enlisted medical specialist, told KBest News that the film Served Like a Girl was heartwarming but also hit close to home. "It definitely gives you a piece of the female side of the house, just a little bit of everything. Maybe not all female Veterans experience every single piece of the film, but it definitely gives you some kind of insight to what we went through and what we go through when we get home."
Basin PBS will be airing Served Like a Girl on Monday night, May 28th, at 9 PM. Here's a link for the trailor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTMibYCQMyk
