I Married the War (2021)


Alone, untrained and unprepared, eleven courageous and steadfast women fight for their loved ones who live with the trauma of war.


Betty and Ken Rodgers’ documentary focuses on eleven military wives who have had to deal with their husbands’ emotional and physical wounds of war.

Betty and former Marine Ken Rodgers coproduced the stirring documentary Bravo! Common Men, Uncommon Valour (2011), which looks at the Vietnam War Siege of Khe Sanh through the eyes of fifteen men who served there. Betty and Ken Rodgers co-wrote, produced, and directed I Married the War, which includes testimony from three Vietnam War veterans’ wives: Francine Jones, Terri Topmiller, and Sally Zepeda.
