This is a marvelous memoir of not just a woman in the military, but the first woman to command an Officer's Club in Thailand, during the Vietnam war. There are many photos, to help bring you, and that portion of history, ever closer.

If you were there, this book will bring back lots of memories and probably more humorous ones than not, though there will be a few sobering moments, I'm sure.

If you weren't there, it's a must read. Not only a fair description of what it was like through the eyes of a woman, but a good perspective on what war really is—and isn't.

Fighter pilots are a breed apart, and she has done a marvelous job of describing them—from their egos to their complex natures. She wrote a book about real people, in a real war, and always remembered that discretion is often the better part of valor.

Well done, Ma'am, well done!
