Thank you for respecting the hard work of this author.



My mother is the author of this book, I am merely the editor of her words. Everything is true, just as she wrote it during her military service in World War II. I have edited some diary entries and letters for brevity but never added to her words. I did put the locations on her diary entries.

This is not an interview after the fact. This is true history written as things happened. She wrote in her diary every day. She wrote voluminous letters home full of detail. I had no idea she kept all her papers from World War II until after she passed away in 2001. I discovered her World War II souvenirs, letters, diaries, programs, newspaper clippings, medals, and photographs. I spent several years assembling and putting her letters and diary entries into the computer. There is a print edition available also.

The book is in four parts and will be published as four separate ebooks:

Part I is The Basics and covers basic training at Daytona Beach, FL, Camp Polk, LA, Ft. Devens, MA, and Camp Shanks, NY, from February 1943 to July 1943, published January 2, 2013 on Smashwords.

Part II is Don't Worry Until I Tell You To and covers at sea to England, Earls Colne Airfield and Marks Hall where she was attached to the 3rd Bombardment Division (M). The dates for this part are July 1943 to December 1943, published January 11, 2013 on Smashwords.

Part III is Dear Sergeant Honey and covers Marks Hall; Chartres, France; Reims, France, from December 1943 to December 1944.

Part IV is The Greatest Generation Goes Home and covers Reims, France; Namur, Belgium, Camp Beale, CA, from December 1944 to September 1945.
