Subject: Newsletter: Women in Combat Book Cover Preview
Happy Hello Dear Readers!
Happiness is seeing your book cover for a forthcoming book publication.
If you would like to see the cover for my 2011 book, Women in Combat, with ABC-CLIO visit either Barnes and Noble at http://search.barnesandnoble.com/Women-in-Combat/Rosemarie-Skaine/e/9781598844597/?itm=7&USRI=rosemarie+skaine or Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/Women-Combat-Reference-Handbook-Contemporary/dp/1598844598/ref=sr_1_11?s=gateway&ie=UTF8&qid=1284994378&sr=8-11
The woman on the cover is Specialist Monica Lin Brown, the first woman since WWII to be awarded the Silver Star for actions under fire in Afghanistan. The significance of this award is that it is the first time a woman has been awarded the medal for combat action. One other woman has recently been awarded for actions under fire in Iraq, Sgt. Leigh Ann Hester. The man on the cover awarded these soldiers the Silver Star and is Vice President Dick Cheney.
These two women and many more are profiled in my forthcoming book, Women in Combat. Their stories are for the strong in heart.
