She Did All She Could in Iraq, Woman GI to Tell all on Veterans’ Day

She was all that she could be with the U.S. Army in Iraq, and she told all about it in her book,   All I Could Be, a May 2013 title from History Publishing Company. The media called on her for the ten-year anniversary of Operation Iraqi Freedom and now there are those event planners and movers who want their attendees and audiences to hear all about her for Veteran’s Day and days beyond.

Miyoko Hikiji, once a soldier deployed to Iraq with the Iowa National Guard’s 2133rd Transportation Corps, and now a model, actress, and author, is compiling a list of events that will call on her to prove that she is still all that she can be without her M-16 and heavy truck. She no longer drives into the face of the enemy but now looks into the faces of friends and fellow Americans. She will be soon doing that on a growing list:

  • 11/7   Notable Iowans exhibit debuts at Iowa Gold Star Military Museum, Camp Dod
  • 11/8   Van Meter community Veteran's Day assembly, Van Meter High Schoo
  • 11/9   Veteran's Day presentation at Cedar Rapids Public Libra
  • 11/11 Veterans' Day luncheon and speech, sponsored by Chrysalis Foundation and Ellen Hubbell
  • 11/12 Veteran's Day presentation, Waukee Public Library, Wauk11/18 Presentation, Ames Rotary Club, Am
  • 12/3 Dupont Pioneer International Series Presentation, Iowa International Center, Des Moines Public Library
  • 12/7 Jordan Creek Barnes and Noble, Book Signing, West Des Moi
  • 12/13 Edgewater Retirement Community Program, West Des Moine
  • 1/8 West Des Moines United Methodist Church Women's Group Presentation
  • 3/5 "A Date with History" Lecture Series Presentation & Book Signing, First Division Museum, Wheaton, IL

Miyoko Hikiji  is considered a force of nature by those who know her. The U.S. Army discovered that in Iraq, television and radio audiences discovered that too, in recent months. And now those who honor and respect those who served in the military will as well.

History Publishing Company will make available to accredited members of the media review copies of Miyoko’s book,  All I Could Be. To download a review copy, please use the widget link below.
