Pub. Date:
Sheldon served as a journalist in Camp Falluja where she managed to interview as many women who happened to be marines as possible--from corporals to colonels--and gained significant perspective on what it really means to be a woman and a marine. With telling and very personal details she describes the culture of marines in Iraq, the choices women made to be marines, the evidence of culture clash as women in Iraq, the experiences of women in combat, the focus on mission necessary for survival, the option of a career, the possibility of injury or death as well as mental illness, and perceptions ion what "coming home" will really be for women who have taken an alternate path in both Iraqi and US life.
