Thoughts of an Army Gal is written by a young lady I had the privilege of teaching, lo the many years ago, when she was a fifth grader. Now, she’s a bright, dedicated, awesome adult. She’s only 19, yet, she is a veteran of the Afganistan/Iraq War. As a 17 year old nurse/medic, she took mortar fire and small arms fire for her country while taking care of dead, dying and wounded young heroes. In my book, she herself is one of those heroes. She has some incredible stories to tell, check back with her often.
When I was 17, by the way, I was pumping gas for a living and trying desperately to find ways to get out of my chores. How about you?
