Vietnam Memoirs: Angel’s Truck Stop
Lt. Col. Pilato will take us back to the Sixties, one of the most turbulent times in modern history, during her presentation on April 18th. As the first woman Air Force officer assigned to manage an Officers’ Club and the first to run one on a fighter pilot base in a war zone, she will give attendees a unique and authentic perspective of the Vietnam War.
In her memoir Angel’s Truck Stop, A Woman’s Love, Laughter, and Loss during the Vietnam War she recounts starting out as a starry-eyed idealist only to realize that she’s going to have to learn how to manage the conflicts, challenges and choices she faces in her trailblazing position.
Here stories of the testosterone-fueled fighter pilots she encountered at Udorn AFB, Thailand and much more from this eye witness to history. We urge you to invite veterans you know to join us on April 18th.
Copies of her memoir Angel’s Truck Stop, A Women’s Love, Laughter, and Loss during the Vietnam War will be on sale after the program for $25.
10% of the book sales will go to removing UXO (unexploded ordinance) in Southeast Asia.
