Jillian Moul, "Surviving Home"


Here's my conversation with Jillian Moul, co-director of “Surviving Home,” a documentary that follows four veterans over an eight-year period as they rebuild their lives after war. Among the questions I asked her:
  • How did you get them to open up?
  • Are they still proud they volunteered to go to war, or wish they’d never enlisted?
  • Is it harder for this generation of vets to find jobs than previous ones?
  • How has it been for them to deal with the VA?
  • One of your subjects is a female Iraq War vet who was sexually assaulted by men in her unit — is there lots of that going on?
