Film Looks At Women Veterans And A Pageant That Raises Awareness

May 15, 2018

A new documentary explores what it means to be a female veteran of the military through the lens of a pageant known as Miss Veteran America.

The participants are veterans, and they help raise awareness of homelessness among female veterans. The film is called "Served Like a Girl," and tomorrow at Red River Theatres in Concord, a screening of the film will be followed by a panel discussion of the issues women veterans face.

Recently at the Manchester VA, I spoke with Laura Caisse about the film. She's the VA's Women Veteran Program Manager.

She says female veterans are one of the fastest growing parts of the homeless population. I asked what that looks like in New Hampshire.

Watch a trailer for the film:
