The year was 1969--Woodstock, Hair the Musical, free love, peace marches, and war. Life was unpredictable at best, but that didn't stop Diane from going after her dream of adventure. Soon to graduate from nursing school, she joined the Army Nurse Corps, and six months later she began her journey. Often comical and frequently cynical, Diane tells the story of her military adventures from basic training through duty in South Vietnam. And along the way, she discovers a truth far different than she ever expected.
