Breastfeeding in Combat Boots is now in E-Book format!

Breastfeeding in Combat Boots is FINALLY available in both Kindle and E-Pub formats.  I have been hounding my publisher for over a year to bring my book to this format due to the high demand from deployed military personnel who want to have an electronic version of the book rather than having to carry a full-sized book in thier gear.  It is here and works great on the Kindle, the Kindle app, the Nook and the iBooks app on the iPad.  Furthermore the many weblinks I have in the book are now easily accessable for moms to gather even more information straight from the device itself.

At The Crossroads of Humanity


The Last Jump is a historical novel of World War II.  America had its trials and tribulations with racial and gender bias and struggled with these issues throughout the War.  A segregated military and a condescending attitude toward women made it extremely difficult for these groups to fully participate and prove themselves.  But not impossible!

In late 1941, President Roosevelt agonized over the rapid advances of the Japanese forces in Asia, they seemed unstoppable. He foresaw their intentions of taking India and linking up with the two other Axis Powers, Germany and Italy, in an attempt to conquer the Eastern Hemisphere. US naval forces had been severely surprised and diminished in Pearl Harbor and the army was outnumbered and ill-prepared to take on the invading hoards. One of his few options was to form a defensive line on the eastern side of the Patkai and Himalayan Ranges, there he could look for support from the Chinese and Burmese. It was to be the only defence to a Japanese invasion of India.

To support and supply these troops, fighting in hostile jungle terrain where overland routes had been cut off, he desperately needed to set up an air supply from Eastern India. His problem was lack of aircraft and experienced pilots to fly the dangerous 'Hump, over the world's highest mountains. Hence came Operation Seven Alpha, a plan to enlist the aircraft, DC-3s, and pilots, veterans of World War One, of American Airlines. This newly formed Squadron would fly these medium-range aircraft in a series of long-distance hops across the Pacific and Southern Asia to the Assam Valley in India. They would then create and operate the vital supply route carrying arms, ammunition and food Eastward to the Allied bases and return with wounded personnel. This is the story of this little-known operation in the early days of the Burma Campaign.

This book is based on the true experiences of those who were involved and is a fitting tribute to the bravery and inventiveness of a band of men who answered their country's desperate call at the outset of the war against Japan in Asia.

So Others May Live Coast Guard Rescue Swimmers Saving Lives Defying Death

Title: So Others May Live Coast Guard Rescue Swimmers Saving Lives Defying Death
Author: Martha LaGuardia-Kotite
Genre: Military, Coast Guard
Reviewer: Buddy Cox

A journey of the heart, enter and share the feelings, desires and emotions we all experience in this the cauldron of the adventure we call life. Blended into who and what we become, who we wish to become. This is emotional poetry, sharing life and the deep feelings of the heart and soul. Each poem tells a story that I hope tugs at your heart or the corners of your mouth, and brings a tear to your eye or a smile to your heart.

I write from my heart, of things I feel, see, hear and experience. I want the reader to be able to both understand and identify with what I write. If just one person is touched by my writing, then I have succeeded.

So cry, smile, or simply view things with a new perspective. Open your heart and let the emotion of the words reach into the depths of your heart. For to be touched so by words is a blessing.
