Book Review by Amanda Huffman a fellow author, blogger, podcaster, and advocate for female veterans

Book Review by MWSA (Military Writers Society of America)

“Before learning Laura’s story, the experience of female combat veterans seemed to be missing from the public narrative. With passion, eloquence and realness, Laura shares the story of her tour in Iraq and the struggles back home..advocating for all veterans and bringing light to the sacrifice of women. Jackie Coffin, MontanaPBS”
