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 are the complete collection of these email "missives," along with a plethora of background information, and yet more stories. 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...
