NEW YORK - June 11, 2020 - (Newswire.com)
Deenie Laskey, a writer who spent four decades in nursing and twenty-five years in the army reserves, has completed her new book, “Journal from Iraq”: a greatly inspiring true-to-life narrative that follows the successes and failures of a nurse who embarked on a mission to give medical care to people off-grid.
Deenie writes, “In the summer of 1960, a ten-year-old girl was playing with her sister in the living room of their Midwestern family home. That was not so unusual. What was unusual was the image on the black-and-white television screen that caught her eye. It caused her to stop dead in her tracks. It was just a commercial, but she didn’t want to miss a second of it! It was telling a story! Little did she know at the time, in many ways, it was telling her story.
What she saw was the ship called SS Hope, a floating hospital ship. It traveled the globe with doctors and nurses to far-reaching destinations. Their mission was to give medical care to people where few others like to go. From that moment on, that little girl knew her destiny. God had a plan for her.
She became a nurse, she joined the army reserve, and deployed to Saud Arabia in Desert Storm, Kosovo, and Iraq. She went where few wanted to go; she saw what few wanted to see. Her passion was to take care of our nation’s wounded heroes. Go with her as she journals her way through the frustrations, demands, failures, and successes in a combat support hospital to a war zone during Iraqi Freedom.
