Pittsburgh area events focus on female military veterans

Deb Erdley
Remembering women who served

Two events next month will focus on female military veterans.

The AARP will screen the documentary “Journey to Normal: Women of War Come Home,” at the Hollywood Theatre in Dormont from 6 to 8:30 p.m. May 9.

The film focuses on the stories of women who have served in combat zones in Iraq and Afghanistan and how they transitioned from war to peace.

The organizers said light refreshments will be served beginning at 6 p.m. The film will begin at 7 p.m., followed by a question-and-answer session with female veterans.

And from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. May 29, the VA Pittsburgh will host a tea for all female veterans in their new Women Veterans Center located inside the Oakland Campus, 4100 Allequippa St., Pittsburgh, PA 15213. This event is free; registration is not necessary

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
