Mrs. Edwards' stories about training include meeting Lana Turner, secret documents, and antics to avoid roll call. When shipped overseas, Mrs. Edwards witnessed first hand the devastation wrought by war in both France and Germany. She was subject to the attack of snipers and the disrespect of American soldiers.
