Abstract

This volume is the memoir of Captain Angel Pilato, who, in 1971, became the first woman to manage the officers' club at the Udorn Air Base in Thailand. The fighter pilots christen the officers' club “Angel’s Truck Stop,” which becomes the backdrop for the conflicts, challenges, and choices she encounters. It reveals a woman’s struggle to fit into a man’s world. As the realities of war erode her ideals, she realizes the future doesn’t hold the certainties it once did.
