So I read a book this past year that I keep thinking about, wanting to re-read it and see if there are others in the series but I can't remember what book it was!  Its driving me batty.

Its science fiction.  The main character is female and from a planet that usually does not join the corps/military/etc., but she has joined up because she can see the future and has to save the universe by changing future events.  She moves up the ranks fairly quickly...and earns a nickname for being bloody.

Anyone know what book I'm thinking of?

Is it Jean Johnson's A Soldier's Duty?  http://www.amazon.com/dp/0441020631

"Ia is a precog, tormented by visions of the future where her home galaxy has been devastated. To prevent this vision from coming true, Ia enlists in the Terran United Planets military with a plan to become a soldier who will inspire generations for the next three hundred years-a soldier history will call Bloody Mary."
