Development of a script for a 90-minute documentary film and interactive website featuring a searchable database of interviews with female U.S. veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, an online community discussion forum, and a story-sharing tool.

Starting within the austerity of a combat-zone deployment to Afghanistan, "Journey to Normal: Women of War Come Home" is a feature-length documentary that follows a group of brave female veterans as they rejoin their families and discover what it takes to truly come home. Related components include: a collection of Archival Interviews filmed with 75 female service members while in Afghanistan housed within the project's searchable database, that will be made available for medical and historical research, and to the general public; and a dynamic web portal positioned as a "call to action" that will provide a forum for further exploration of the humanities themes expressed in the film, and foster a "virtual community" for veterans, their families, and the general public to interact in support of one another.
