This was a great follow-up to MAKE YOUR BED.  I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the way that Adam McRaven brings his experience to life.  Having grown up at the same time as the author, I was able to relate to his story in a personal way.  Being a Navy veteran, his stories allowed me to remember some of my own times in the Navy in a fond way.  I consider him to be a modern-day hero and someone today's youth should aspire to emulate.

I really loved this book. I found it fascinating how these young women embraced the challenge they were given and did their part in helping to shorten the war thereby saving lives. I believe these young girls were on the forefront of the women’s rights movement. Liz Mundy does a marvelous job telling the stories of these unsung and little known heroes. I recommend this book for anyone interested history.
