Denise Boulet

I grew up the oldest child of a poor single woman in Louisiana. It's my journey through a miserable childhood to emerge victorious over such odds because I joined the military and made a new life for myself.

Still, it wasn't an easy life. Since I was not a military "brat" and had no real knowledge of what military life was like, I was often confused, especially when stationed in foreign countries.

It was also a lonely life since I had severed contact with my foster families and my biological family did not approve of my jioning the Navy since they would have preferred to control me.

At the time I did not know that I suffered PTSD from all the abuse from my early childhood years and my teen years in abusive foster homes where sexual abuse and molestation was the norm. I was to understand that many years after the abuse and found help through the VA.

Although I served a total of 20 years combined active duty and reserve, this book covers the first ten years on active duty.


Excerpt

It's not like I woke up one day and decided to join the Navy. I do not recall ever really deciding anything at all about my life. It seems to me that it was decided for me, not necessarily with my best interest in mind.

It was 1973 and I was stuck in a job I didn't like and life was going nowhere fast. I had no future that I could see.
