Screening of "Served Like A Girl"
12:00 P.M. | CPACS Room 101
NET, Nebraska's PBS & NPR Stations, is partnering with the UNO Student Veteran Organization to screen Served Like A Girl as part of the Tribute to the Fallen commemoration week.
This film chronicles the lives of female veterans as they compete for the crown of Ms Veteran America. These remarkable women harness humor to adapt to the emotional, social and economic challenges they face through the competition. While struggling with PTSD, divorce, serious illness, and military sexual abuse, competing in Ms. Veteran America ignites an emotional roller coaster for the women. They transform before the eyes of the audience and recover lost parts of self and identity, hopefully leaving the audience with a deepened understanding of the diverse women who join the military and what happens to them when they return from war.
