LOVE MY RIFLE MORE THAN YOU, by Kayla Williams

Subtitled Young and Female in the U. S. Army, this forthright book will alternately charm and horrify you. Women make up roughly 15% of the Army, long a bastion of the testosterone-bathed life, and female's adjustments to the highly-charged life are detailed here with honesty and clarity. Williams - who trained as an Arabic linguist - was in the Army for five years, one of them deployed in Iraq, and her experiences range from ridiculously funny to appallingly gruesome. (That period alone will make you wonder how any army manages to win anything.) Click below for more...
While she did not support the war, she had a duty to support the Army, and she did so without complaint. An eye-opener for us civilians, this ought to be required reading for anyone elected to Congress. It's a 5.
