Sinopsis:

DEAR SERGEANT HONEY is a non-fiction compilation of the writings of the author's mother who was a member of the Women's Army Corps (WAC) in WW II. It details her 2 1/2 years of service from the time she was given a two day notice to report for duty, to basic training and overseas service. Hildie Molnar served overseas in a unique job. She kept a daily diary and wrote detailed letters home to family and friends. This is not a recollection but rather a day-by-day record as things happened to her in WW II. Every word was written by her as only someone who lived it could do. The author edited but never embellished her words. Editing was only done to keep the book a reasonable size. You will laugh at some of her descriptions of events and be prompted to reflect on the impact of this war through her eyes. She was one of the first WACs to serve in the European Theatre of Operations, (ETO), received a Bronze Star for meritorious service, and one of the very few WACs who were entitled to wear combat ribbons for her service. You will find her reactions to these honors in the book. She met her husband-to-be in England. When they were separated they would write letters to each other with the greeting, "Dear Sergeant Honey." Don't expect ordinary love letters, though. Expect instead lyrical writing laced with cynicism, humor and commentaries on the war. This is a rare first person account of WW II seen through the eyes of a female soldier. You will never read anything like it. Please see the review below from the Military Writers Society of America.

From the Author:

It was my privilege to put this book together and share it with you. My mom, Hildie Molnar, passed away in 2001 and when I was going through her things I found this treasure of written letters, her diary, photos, and souvenirs of WW II. I have been compiling this ever since. The book was published in August, 2008.

Neither one of my parents ever talked about their service that I can remember. I knew she was a WAC and my Dad was in the military but it just wasn't a topic of conversation. It was like they did their duty and didn't think they did anything out of the ordinary. We just can't let their stories be lost.
