    Hello. I would like to contact Rose Gentle for permission to visit her and photograph her for the documentary project Poppies (Women and War) which I am undertaking, with Arts Council sponsorship, and which will open as a touring exhibition at the Murray Edwards women’s college at the University of Cambridge in November 2014.
    I can explain more fully the project, which aims to give voice to the women involved in/affected by wars from WWI to the present day, from women involved at the front line to women who work for peace, justice and an end to war. I do hope you can assist me and I would be very grateful if you could pass on my request.
    Thank you.

      Dear Dr Lee Karen Stow
      Like you, I too am keen to talk to Rose Gentle regarding an arts project I am working on.
      I am a UK based artist looking to speak with UK based families of those serving in or those who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan ahead of an art exhibition.
      This webpage, however, is US based and I suspect you will not find a contact for Rose Gentle here. Nonetheless, if you do come across a contact, perhaps you could pass on my request.
      Thank you in advance,
      Bobby Pathak

    Hi,

    Just letting you know before you send the letter that there is a mispelling of “lives”. You spelt it “lies” as in thousands of lives* lost.

    Good luck on your efforts.

    I’d like to have someone from MFSO come to Highline College near Seattle for our MLK Week events. We’d like to put together a panel to discuss veterans’ perspectives on war.
    Thank you.

    Greetings. I’m part of my college’s MLK Week planning committee. I’m interested in putting together a panel of veterans for our event in January 2015, to speak about Veterans and Perspectives on War. Is this something you’d be able to help with?

    Highline College is located just south of Seattle, Washington, very close to the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

    Thank you very much.

    I was deeply disappointed to hear that you would not be including the families of veterans who survived these wars in your upcoming panel with pHil Donahue. I appreciate the sacrifice and suffering of Gold star families and the Lucey’s losing Jeffrey when he come home. But because of the wound-to-kill ratio of these wars, and the unprecedented rates of invisible, signature injuries, the majority of families of veterans live with a profoundly different person that was sent to war. I think the idea to make sure that the only military family panel members are the ones who buried their veteran is a bad one.. They are not the ones who live with the animated corpse. Not the ones who live with the shit every single day, and have to make choices every single fucking day that can, and ultimately (for those of us who want to survive this shit) do lead to making the single most difficult choice of our lives, and then we are told congratulations by civilians who learn of our divorce.

    So great media coverage, but if you’re going to do it, tell the whole story.

    This war destroyed everything that ever mattered to me, and I write about it in my forthcoming book, , Homefront 911: How Families of veterans Are Wounded by Our wars.

    It damn near killed me. And maybe, just maybe, that should be included in the segment, too.
