Sinopsis:

Anne Green wrote weekly letters to her parents back in Minnesota, chronicling a familiar yet uncommon wartime story of patriotism, travel, homesickness, army procedures, off-duty hijinks, family bonds, and boredom. Her eye for detail and her easy, candid style make these letters a treasure for those who want to know about the war years—and for those who remember them all too well.

From Library Journal:

This collection of letters to family and friends recounts Green's experiences in the Women's Army Corps in 1944-45. Green dropped out of the University of Minnesota to enlist and served in a variety of training situations and medical facilities in the United States. Her very literate letters show army life to be long periods of boredom interrupted by short periods of useful work, all complicated by administrative inefficiency. Had it not been for an active social life, well described here, serving would have been intolerable. There is little else like this available from the woman's point of view. An unbiased, important contribution to the social and military history of the war years. For most libraries.
