Shannon Morgan and Peggy Mikelonis, Lead Womens Program Manager, VA VISN 8, at the VA's Las Vegas Conference.


First of all, I would like to thank Meri Mallard and the V.A. for the opportunity to attend the Evolving Paradigms II Convention in Las Vegas, N.V. It was such an honor and a privilege to speak at this year's program. The turnout of all the wonderful V.A. employees from around the United States was well around 3,000 plus. LIONESS was screened in front of all attendees and was very well received with standing ovations, lots of hugs and tears alike. I got a chance after the film screening to sit on a panel to answer any questions or comments the audience may have had. It seemed to have educated most everyone and enlightened those seeing it for the first time! All of your kind words and continued support will help myself and others in the V.A. systems throughout the U.S. Once again thank you for allowing me and my father to be a part of such an extraordinary event.
Sincerely, Shannon Morgan

Each year I manage to see a couple [of films] that I can’t get out of my head. This year one of the films was Lioness.
