    This is the memoir of Air Force Major Mary Jennings Hegar She was a rescue helicopter pilot She had successfully rescued hundreds of men and women off the battlefield Hegar had served three tours in Afghanistan The author briefly covers her time in high school and ROTC in college Most of the book is about her time in military serviceHegar tells of being shot down during a rescue mission She was also shot by the Taliban She fought through her injuries to save the three Americans that were the target of the rescue mission and her own team Their ordeal culminated in a daring escape hanging onto the skids of a Kiowa helicopter Major Hegar was awarded the Purple Heart She was the sixth women to receive The Distinguished Flying Cross and only the second women ever to receive it with the Valor DeviceAs exciting and interesting the combat part of the book was the real story happened when she returned to the States Hegar had to fight the military for access to combat related Veterans Services After she stopped flying she was refused a job she applied for in the Air National Guard The reason for refusal was she was a woman otherwise she was qualified for the job She had to sue the Secretary of Defense that the Combat Exclusion Policy was unconstitutional after all she had spent three tours in combat in Afghanistan even if the military ignored it She won the case Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta removed gender discrimination from the military Any position depends on meeting the qualifications for the job and if qualified cannot be refused based on gender race or religionThe book is well written and is easy to read There is a little violence and some foul language but a teenager could read the book with no difficulty The author does go into the sexual discriminationharassment she had to endure during her flight training and during her service years I believe I read that a movie is being made from the bookI read this as an audiobook downloaded from Audible The book is almost eight and a half hours long Cynthia Farrell does a good job narrating the book Farrell is an actress and audiobook narrator
