First the Book then Turning Hearts and Minds

Miyoko Hikiji set out to help conquer Iraq ten years ago with the U.S. Army and today her sights are on the American homeland. She wrote of her Iraq experiences in her book All I Could Be: My Story as a Woman Warrior in Iraq published by Chronology Books, an imprint of History Publishing Company, and now she is telling her story to those who want to hear her tell of her exploits, what she did and experienced, and what she saw and would like to forget. She has been interviewed on several dozen radio and television programs and spoken in museums, bookstores and military installations since her book was published in May, 2013. Add the places below, the list is growing and more are pending. She has become a force of one.
