“We’re looking for a few good men . . .”
She should’ve known something was up when the USMC recruiting office was open on Christmas Day.
This is the secret story of an odd young woman who chose to enlist in the Marine Corps to escape her hometown in Florida. Now she’s figuring out her way around one of the most testosterone-engorged branches of the US military.
Tracy’s adventures will take her around the world to foreign brothels, bars, and war zones. Through blood, sweat, tears, and lots of needless confusion, she gives us a glimpse into the life of the extremely rare female Marine. Told from the perspective of a low-ranking enlisted Marine, The Girl in the Gun Club is a story about striving to fit in while hopelessly sticking out.
