I was curious about the life of a woman in the army. Much of the book was very informative; however, the jargon became tiresome after a while. I think the general paints a very optimistic picture of the army as a career for women, but somehow I had a hard time accepting all of it. It began to sound a little bit like propaganda. I feel proud of her and her accomplishments, and the book had a lot of information--somehow I guess I expected more.Definitely good for someone thinking of making the army a career.
