About this event

Part of UNO's Tribute to the Fallen week.

Served Like a Girl is a documentary film chronicling the lives of female veterans as they compete for the crown of Ms. Veteran America. These remarkable women harness humor to adapt to the emotional, social and economic challenges they face through the competition. Balancing beauty and brawn, they are guided by event founder and veteran Major Jas Boothe, using the competition to regain their identities and way of life that they sacrificed in foreign wars.

While struggling with PTSD, divorce, serious illness, and military sexual abuse, competing in Ms. Veteran America ignites an emotional roller coaster for the women. Their stories build through their personal drama to the grand finale of the Ms. Veteran America event itself. They transform before the eyes of the audience and recover lost parts of self and identity, hopefully leaving the audience with a deepened understanding of the diverse women who join the military and what happens to them when they return from war.
