Redstone commander Maj. Gen. Jim Myles gives Betty Mahmoody and her daughter, Mahtob Mahmoody, a token of appreciation for their presentation during Team Redstone's Women's History Month recognition program, March 17. The mother and daughter were held prisoners in Iran from 1984 to 1986 when they traveled there to visit the family of Mahmoody's Iranian-born and American-educated husband. Mahmoody's story was the basis of her Pulitzer Prize nominated and bestselling book "Not Without My Daughter" and a 1991 movie of the same name.
