Cypress Creek Publishing has released a book that “tugs at the heartstrings; it reminds those of us who fought in Vietnam that our loved ones suffered as much at home as we did in the jungles. Rosalie Turner has captured the essence of loneliness, pride, sisterhood, and bravery. Her ‘sisters’ are heroines in every sense of the word.” - Ron Milam, Ph.D., Vietnam Combat Veteran and Interim Director of the Center for War and Diplomacy in the Post-Vietnam War Era, Texas Tech University
