What to watch on Memorial Day: War Zone/Comfort Zone

The PBS World channel, WMHT Ch. 17.3, will broadcast the documentary “War Zone/Comfort” a few times on Memorial Day. The film focuses on female veterans who must deal with poverty, homelessness, joblessness, and psychological and physiological effects of PTSD from military sexual assault and/or combat all within a system that is ill-equipped and, in some cases, unwilling to help.

The documentary follows Shalini Madaras and Joy Kiss in their fight to open the first transitional house for women veterans in Connecticut, despite neighborhood opposition. It also tells the story of four women who are coping with life after the military using interviews and footage that provide a surprising look into the lives of these invisible veterans.

The film airs Monday, May 27 at 4 pm, 6 pm, 9 pm on WMHT Ch. 17.3.
