Jana’s Magnanimous Monday with Laura Law-Millett GIFF
GIFF 2013

Who:

Laura Law-Millett

Pet Cause:

The GI Film Festival, which addresses veteran employment and image issues. www.gifilmfestival.com

Why is this cause so dear to you:

As a former Army major, I was disturbed how soldiers were portrayed in the media. When society sees soldiers portrayed incorrectly in films – it affects the soldier’s ability to gain employment, treatment options for PTSD, and how they view themselves. Approximately 22 veterans commit suicide each day. Veterans deserve better!
