On Narratively, Secret Life of Gitmo’s Women by artist Lucy Bellwood and interviewer Sarah Mirk tells the stories of two women serving in the Navy at Guantanamo Bay. The negatives of military culture seem to be amplified on the tiny island. Laura and Melanie’s stories both speak to the isolation and emotional conflict they feel as part of the War on Terror, and both feel an impact on their mental health. Each woman tells her story of sexual assault as though it is just part of the deal for enlisted women. These two brief stories are beautifully told.
