Free Fiction Monday: Combat Medic
Berkeley, May, 1969—When former Army nurse Captain June “Eagle” Eagleton returned from Vietnam, she thought she left the war zone behind. But when the familiar sound of a helicopter wakes Eagle from sleep, she realizes she has awoken in a very different kind of war zone: one filled with tear gas, and kids, and the National Guard.
As Eagle fights her way to help her friend Pammy at A Gym of Her Own, she finds herself in the middle of a very difficult situation—one where saving lives might prove harder than she thought possible.
