Books: Love My Rifle More Than You.

Just finished reading Love My Rifle More Than You, by Kayla Williams, who was, until recently, Sgt. Williams, an MI troop with the 187th deployed to Iraq.

I figured it for an interesting read the moment I saw it, and wasn't disappointed. It's a good viewpoint on what it is to be the lone chick in what is a rather, um, testosterone-soaked environment. I could relate...

Anyhow, she's witty, with writing that weaves effortlessly between dry & cerebral and earthy military humor, and an ability to convey the emotions of events. Two thumbs up.
