Clara Driscoll was an Army officer for more than two decades. In Kosovo early in her career she met an Albanian woman who gave her a vial of lip gloss, a gesture of kindness Clara has never forgotten. Later, in Afghanistan, she wore an abaya as a sign of respect for the local population. Clara’s service taught her about the importance of seeking human connections and looking beyond differences.
