Published Reviews

"Voices in Conflict ended with a standing ovation. Some audience members wiped tears from their eyes."

Erika Hayasaki, Los Angeles Times

"With its frank testimonials, the script presented a stark portrait of the mind of the modern soldier, including their reasons for joining the military -- one soldier cited Top Gun as his inspiration -- their grueling trek through basic training and their attitudes toward having to kill."

Larry Getlen, The New York Post
