Voice of America - TV

Watch the video here.

This is an extraordinary piece from America's overseas propaganda arm. It's more honest than much of the domestic news coverage. Though Marla would certainly dispute whether the US military actually keeps civilian death counts. See her USA Today editorial here.

Not only is Marla's legacy treated with dignity, you get a glimpse of her sense of humor. Speaking with a soldier Marla confesses to smoking four cigarettes to deal with the stress.

She says, "Dude, I'm from San Francisco. You're not allowed to smoke."

Beyond your courage Marla, we will miss your ability to see the funny side of everything.
