Memoirs of Two Generations of Military Women
Lita Tomas & Jean Marie McNamara
A shattering tell–all: the fight of this mother and daughter for themselves, each other, and the world around them is a painful yet riveting account of family, service, and love.
Lita and her daughter bare their souls with unflinching candor in this memoir. Forcing their darkest moments and the secrets of family, the Catholic Church, military, and disability into the light, their resilience and resolve stands as stark inspiration.
From painful high school haircut memories to rescuing their fellow soldiers from a flipped vehicle, there’s romance, reality, and action in these pages. Authors Lita and Jean will pull you through the swarms of ticks at Fort McCoy, Wisconsin, and the excruciating medical bureaucracy of Veteran’s Affairs to land you breathless by their side today.
Lita & Jean is a book that needs to be read and shared. This memoir will help future generations understand what it meant to be a soldier and a woman at this time, and current generations how to build the support and outreach needed to thrive.
