In 55 Years on Campus, author Detra Enman has written a book that is fun to read. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about her experiences on "campus." Anyone with a military background can certainly appreciate the situations she got herself in and out of. Her light hearted way of telling of her story rubs off on the reader. Not only was the book a fast and easy read, a reader can learn a thing or two from Enman's experiences.
My only regret is that the book ended so soon. I would have enjoyed reading more. Although it could be strengthened with a little more editing, I recommend this book to everyone who enjoys a fun and fast read and to those wanting to learn more about a life in the military or the life of a crew member on a private corporate jet.
Review by Bob Doerr, MWSA Reviewer
“55 Years on Campus” is a memoir that I am humbled to share with you, of my life lesson and things that I have come to understand during my journey on this campus I call life.
I have served over 20 years in the Air Force, and currently am a private flight attendant for the rich and famous - for close to 20 years as well. The world has been my campus. I have had jobs that are dominantly masculine to include feminine and jobs no human should have. My lessons have had me experience tragedies, failures, success and happiness. Some of my subjects were loss of life, air show disasters, murder, terrorist threats, natural disasters, religion conflicts, culture beliefs, racism, human nature/instincts, beauty, love, compassion, jealousy, use, abuse, etc etc. I am not alone and no one special. You all have a story, journey and special experiences on your campus of life.
My heart simply wanted to share with you my lessons; in the hopes you can laugh, be entertained and learn off of my mistakes and success’s. By not limiting myself; I got to experience more than most and grateful for this trait that I embraced.
It has come to my belief that there is nothing that you can’t do – you are the only one in your way.
