no rest for the wicked!

i just got back from DC. my two days in DC have been nothing short of amazing...from meeting with the producer, the interviews (all three women brought something completely different to the table, all are extremely intelligent and powerful...we interviewed Brig Gen Vaught, LeEllen and Kayla Williams), just talking with the women, who i've met, what i've seen, walking around DC by myself for a few hours and taking photos...it's been a lot to take in and i'm so grateful for the experience. i have a bunch of pictures that i'll post (however, i use film (yeah yeah) and i have to get it developed) and tomorrow theres more work to do...well theres going to be lots of work until saturday! i'm exhausted and need to shower.

read what LeEllen has to say about her experience here!

And possibly Hillary Clinton as Vice. Kind like Kennedy and Johnson, which I remember.

The documentary ideas look good, Kate, though it seems to be a tad too pro-war for my liking, though I haven't read Kayla Wms' book, though. Why not interview Ann Wright as well?

anonymous #3...1)pro-war? its about women in the military! what are you talking about? its about women’s experiences from decades ago to the present. 2) your liking? ohh, sorry. i forgot to consult you! its for my liking. there are plenty of anti-war documentaries...go watch one. not everything about this war has to be political...apparently you can’t wrap your head around that.

Hey, sounds like a great weekend. Can't wait to hear about the finished product. You go girl! I'm chilling, well, sweating out here while helping my friends take care of their four horses, and soak up some sun, out here in Veags for a week. Keep us updated!

Anon #3 sure seems to be making a big leap into the deep end without knowing the facts! Why would a documentary about women in the military necessarily have to be pro-war? Just because it is about the military? Just because it is about women? Just because it is a documentary? Does every documentary have to meet the anonymous board of review's standards for correctness? I don't get it, anon #3. Why not wait for the finished product before making up your mind about it? Wouldn't that be the more liberal-minded thing to do?

Merely a 1st observation, that's why I said "seems". No worries- I still'll watch it objectively, once you get it from the conception to execution stage. #3

Looking at her picture on the back cover of the book, I'm fairly certain that I've met her once or twice. She mentions some soldiers from my company.

Either way, Love My Rifle More Than You is a well-written introduction to the experience of being a female in the military.
