Robynn Murray is an all-American girl from upstate New York who enlisted in the Army, headed off to Iraq, ended up as a gunner on top of a Humvee; she was even photographed for the cover of Army magazine.

After she returned home, though, Murray struggled with depression and PTSD.

Her story is told in "Poster Girl," a powerful documentary about the ravages of war and the mental toll caused by post-traumatic stress disorder.

Radio Boston's Anthony Brooks spoke with Murray and "Poster Girl" filmmaker Sara Nesson in February.

Guest:

  • Sara Nesson, director, "Poster Girl"
  • Robynn Murray, U.S. Army veteran and the subject of the movie

This segment aired on May 30, 2011.
