Hands by Robynn Murray
I joined the Army Reserve in October 2003 and was deployed to Iraq in May 2004 with the 403rd Civil Affairs Battalion. I served as my team's machine gunner and security detail. I am back at school, completing my degree in political science and speaking out against the war. I am an active member of Warrior Writers, Iraq Vets Against the War and I participated in Winter Soldier 2008 to get our stories out to the public. I am finishing a manuscript of my writing about the military and the war in Iraq.
I am the subject of Poster Girl, which was nominated for the 2011 Academy Award for Best Short Documentary Film, and have been traveling aorund the country with the film, speaking at screenings about PSTD and my experiences.
