Join us for a conversation with Jennifer MackInday and Patti Donahue, Authors of Friends for Life:  Strangers Brought Together by the War in Iraq.  

Friends for Life is a  non-fiction war story told through the voice of two women, chronicling the experiences and emotions of a yearlong deployment to Iraq.  Patti, the mother of an Army medic, and Jennifer, sister of an Infantry soldier, forge an online friendship as their soldiers fight together in Iraq.  Patti and Jennifer spend the year supporting their soldiers and comforting each other while their boys battled with the Deuce Four Stryker Brigade in the fierce fight to secure Mosul, Iraq.
