bm110 GI Joan on the Military, Iraq, Disaster Recovery, and Powerlessness

Following the interview a few weeks ago with GI Jane, GI Joan contacted me to express how she saw things as a national guard soldier who joined prior to Sept. 11th. In this interview we talk about her view of the military, the invasion of Iraq, the government, her experience helping with hurricane recovery, and the power (or lack there of) that civilians have in the grand scheme of things.
