She's a wife, a mother of two, a part-time writer, and until now, she's been living a secret life....Meet Lieutenant Colonel Christine Cook, battalion commander of a Michigan National Guard unit. In November 2003, she was alerted, then mobilized and deployed to the Kuwait Theater of Operations, in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. The day after she arrived, she sent an email letter letting her friends and family know she was alive and she was safe, but it seemed like she was on another universe. Thus begins a year's worth of emails that kept her loved ones amused, but informed, about the comings and goings of an intrepid soldier. Here for the first time are the complete collection of these email missives, along with a plethora of background information, yet more stories, and even a couple of photos. Here's what war is really like, from a woman with, she admits, a somewhat eccentric vision of it. Sit back, relax, and enjoy. You're going to another galaxy.
