For Winning Week on BTR, we bring you an in-depth conversation with Marcia Rock and Patricia Lee Stotter, the filmmakers behind a new documentary called Service: When Women Come Marching Home. The film explores post-traumatic stress syndrome, military sexual trauma, homelessness, and other issues facing military service women. In our interview, Rock and Stotter discuss how civilians can help women veterans overcome the challenges awaiting them when they come home.
