About the Book

      Your Mother Wears Combat Boots is a refreshing collection of stories that honor the service and accomplishments of women in all branches of the United States Armed Forces. From search and rescue to historical firsts, from motherhood to combat, these unparalleled accounts of grit give the reader a glimpse of the unique circumstances faced by mothers, daughters, sisters and wives in uniform.

         "Your Mother Wears Combat Boots offers a fascinating look into the lives of women who make up today's Total Force, while providing honest and insightful accounts of how they built on the experiences of the women before them, and set the standards for those who will follow." Brigadier General Tom Brewer, AUS (Ret)

         "Your Mother Wears Combat Boots is a compilation of real stories written by real women who have served in the United States Armed Forces. These extraordinary women now share their remarkable experiences and their most private emotions while providing the reader a glimpse of the conditions that shaped them. They speak the common language of the soldier and the officer, a language that anyone who has ever served, or is currently serving, will understand. This inspirational collection is a must have for all servicemen and women as a reminder that they are not alone, and for the families and loved ones that support them." William Cannon Hunter, Ph.D., Cultural Studies
