Always Coming Home: The American Female Veteran Experience Archive is designed to provide ongoing documentation of the diverse combat and service situations women in the military face as well as recording the experiences of the increasing numbers of female veterans whose return to civilian life has been affected by their years of service. Women veterans are interviewed, on video, and invited to share their reasons for joining the military, their experiences while in service, and the opportunities and setbacks they have faced upon return to civilian life. This project includes the short documentary “Soldier Girl.” There are currently over 50 interviews in the archive, some of which you can view here.
Portions of this collection may be viewed online; the remainder may be accessed upon request.
