|Summary, etc.:|| "Raised in the small farming community of Toledo, Illinois, Kathy Wolf could not have foreseen all the twists and turns her life would take when she enlisted in the United States Navy in 1977. At that time, America was deeply involved in the Cold War against the Soviet Union and Communist Bloc. American female sailors were beginning to fill many duties previously reserved for men. Kathy would eventually work at secret Naval Facilities where she was responsible for detecting, locating, tracking, and plotting positions of Soviet submarines lurking off the west coast of America. This memoir is a compilation of letters received during the author's enlistment from family and friends of her hometown along with letters from Navy friends and her future husband. Included in the memoir are the author's recollections of experiences in boot camp and duty stations in California, Virginia, and Alaska. Kathy describes times of discovery, adventure, and good times as well as episodes of homesickness, sorrow, and tragedy. The events of Kathy's Navy years would have a major impact on the rest of her life." -- P. of cover.
