by Melia Meichelbock

"I feel extremely honored to be an Award-Winning Finalist in this national book competition," says author Melia Meichelbock. "I hold nothing back in this tell-all book in the hope that readers will gain an honest insight on the war from a unique perspective, from living with all men and having an extra-marital affair to charges against my superior officers."

The book will give individuals in the military and civilians alike a candid you-are-there perspective on life as an American solider in Iraq, all told with a few healthy doses of humor to help you enjoy the read along the way.
