I Love a Man in Uniform: A Memoir of Love, War, and Other Battles by Lily Burana

An all-American love story about a former punk-rock stripper and her unlikely marriage to an officer in the U.S. Army. In this brave, eloquent, and funny memoir, critically acclaimed author Lily Burana writes about love and self-discovery with an honesty few writers would dare. A former stripper with a penchant for fishnets and anarchist politics, Lilys lacerating wit and rebellious past never would have suggested a marriage into the military. But then she met Major Mike, a Military Intelligence officer and professor at West Point, and fell hopelessly in love, resulting in a most unorthodox fairytale romance -- poignant, sometimes painful, and utterly unpredictable. After Lily and Mike tied the knot, life as an Army wife proved to be a rough adjustment for authority-averse Lily. When Mike was deployed in the War on Terror, Lily was suddenly left to endure his absence alone, with no friends, no support system, and no knowledge of the vast and confusing military world into which she had married. Upon Mikes return from the war, the couple moved to historic West Point. With the support of the other military wives, Lily worked through the daily struggle to find her way and came to know and love a group of unlikely friends. Together, Mike and Lily suffered through the nightmare of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, while Lily suffered bouts of depression that nearly ended their marriage. Through it all, Lily struggled with her preconceptions about the military and coped with being married to a good soldier fighting a brutal war. From harrowing emotion to the dishy details of being an Army wife, Lily Burana bares her heart and soul as a modern military spouse., I Love a Man in Uniform is a profoundly moving story of how a woman can locate, and heal, her true self.
