‘Ashley’s War’ and the story of the women of special operations is coming to the big screen | Military Times

In 2015, best-selling author Gayle Tzemach Lemmon wrote a book about a young and brave woman named Lt. Ashley White Stumpf who joined the Army Cultural Support Team(CST).  The team was created to improve relationships with Afghan civilians, due to cultural limitations placed on Afghan women that prevented them from speaking with men who were not family members. Five years after the book was published, the story was confirmed in development for a big screen adaptation. Military Times interviewed Lemmon about the process of writing “Ashley’s War,” the role of CSTs, and shattering previously held stigmas of women in combat.
