War was not what this free spirit expected when she married an Army helicopter pilot. No longer serving in the role of a military wife, she shares her personal thoughts and experiences while living off base at Ft. Campbell in Clarksville, Tenn. and the Air National Guard in Westhampton Beach, N.Y. Stories are based on actual events before, during, and after Sept. 11 and wartime. She apologizes for the occasional potty-mouth. This revised edition includes the aftermath of war, dating after divorce, and many of Carrie Ann's original photographs.
