These are stories written by eleven Navy wives who living in the Philippines, in 1953 to 1956 during the Cold War. Their husbands were flying highly secret missions off the coast of China and Russia. They never knew when their husbands would leave or when they were coming back home, or if they would come back. In late October, the squadron moved from the P.I. to Japan. The book took seven years to complete. Quote from RADM "Mac" Showers, USN-Ret. "Their individual accounts of experiences reveal the good, the bad and the ugly, and occasionally the very ugly aspects of life abroad in strange and often very difficult circumstances. That they managed to cope, to provide loyal support to their husbands who regularly carried out assigned secretive missions, to raise their children, and to generally improve the conditions under which they lived is vivid testimony to the strength of character represented by each."
