Miyoko Hikiji “All I Could Be”
July 15th, 2013
American women in the military are now allowed to take combat roles.
But long before that official decision was made, Miyoko Hikiji, a young woman from Iowa, found herself in Iraq in the early days of the war, doing one of the most dangerous jobs there was….
Hikiji was a truck driver, traveling across roads studded with IEDs, bringing critically needed ammunition and supplies to the men in combat.

She calls it “part military history, part personal revelation, part therapy, the stuff of so many war stories that have become a vital part of the great American tradition.”
