Knox Museum is proud to present a screening of SOLDIER ON, followed by a panel discussion with filmmaker Susan M. Sipprelle, two of the soldiers featured in her film, and key Maine women veterans, moderated by Maine Bureau of Veterans’ Services Director Adria Horn. Admission is free and all are welcome to attend.
SOLDIER ON: LIFE AFTER DEPLOYMENT follows three women as they confront the challenges of readjusting to civilian life after their post-9/11 military service. The women in SOLDIER ON are forthright about their many problems, while simultaneously managing to find moments of humor amidst their struggles, and gradually reconnecting with the inner strength and resilience that has always defined them. Forever changed by their military service, the women adapt to find a new place in the civilian world.
This program is the first in a series of Knox Museum’s 2017 special programs featuring women veterans, made possibly by a generous gift from Walmart Foundation.
