Ballad for Baghdad: An Ex-Hippie Chick Viet Nam War Protester's Three Years in Iraq
How did an ex-hippie chick Viet Nam War protester become a fierce soldier supporter, living in a combat zone in an increasingly unpopular war? From 2004 to 2007, Ali Elizabeth Turner had the chance of a lifetime to learn firsthand that freedom isn't free and to say a much belated "thank you" for her freedom by working in Morale, Welfare, and Recreation centers in Baghdad. She heard the stories of hundreds of Iraqis, Coalition soldiers, interpreters, Navy SEALS, Army Rangers, and contractors from around the world. She was in Baghdad for the return of Iraq to the Iraqis, Saddam's ongoing antics in court, all three Iraqi elections, and Saddam's trial and execution. No matter what you think of Operation Iraqi Freedom, you deserve to hear the stories that go beyond the politics--stories of courage, compassion, miracles, and humor. Read and see if you don't end up "singing the Ballad"!
