Service: When Women Come Marching Home

Posted by WMHT Web Editor on


Watch Friday, November 7, 2014 at 7pm on WORLD.

Service: When Women Come Marching Home portrays the courage of women in service and when they have left the military; the horrific traumas they faced, the inadequate care they often receive on return, and the accomplishments the women work mightily to achieve. Through compelling portraits, watch these women wrestle with prosthetics, homelessness, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Military Sexual Trauma. 

The documentary takes the audience on a journey from Afghanistan and Iraq to Tennessee and New York City, from coping with the loss of two legs, to flashbacks, triggers and depression to ways to support other vets. The journey ends in Washington D.C. where vets meet with Congressional leaders to voice their concerns. Service honors the resilience of an amazing group of women who have overcome physical and emotional traumas with an unbroken spirit.
