Women and the War in Iraq: A Seattle Public Forum

Received news of an awesome gathering from a former Viet Nam vet who today runs a state program getting peers involved in environmental projects. (You may remember Gordy Graham from my Seattle 'Moving a Nation to Care' book tour stop notes this summer). In October, some of the area's best and brightest are coming together to discuss the wars' effect on the women soldiers who are fighting it. This looks like a must-not-miss event.
