Brown Bag Lunch Book Talk and Signing
Celebrating Women’s History Month 2012

The Women In Military Service For America Memorial Foundation is pleased to welcome author and retired Naval aviator Linda Maloney to the Women’s Memorial to discuss her newly released book “Military Fly Moms: Sharing Memories, Building Legacies, Inspiring Hope”. The event, scheduled for Tuesday, March 20 at 11:30 a.m., is in celebration of Women’s History Month 2012.

Retired Lt. Cmdr. Linda Maloney is a 20-year veteran of the Navy and a decorated combat aviator. She is also a mother raising two boys. “Military Fly Moms” tells the stories of more than 70 military woman aviators who, like Linda Maloney, also hold the title “Mom”. The book speaks to these groundbreaking women and their experiences as professional military officers, aviators, wives and mothers. Inspiring to everyone who is juggling career and family, “Military Fly Moms” illustrates that the two are not mutually exclusive.

Joining Lt. Cmdr. Maloney will be several of the women whose stories are part of “Military Fly Moms”. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear their stories and learn firsthand about their work-life balance experiences as well as share the day-to-day challenges faced by every military mom.

The book talk is free and open to the public. Maloney and fellow aviators will be on hand for a book signing immediately following the event. Copies of “Military Fly Moms” will be available for sale at the Memorial Gift Shop. Those interested in attending are encouraged to bring a brown bag lunch and enjoy this lunchtime discussion. To reserve a seat or for more information, please call 800-222-2294 or 703-533-1155. The Women’s Memorial, located at the gateway to Arlington National Cemetery, is readily accessible by Metro (Blue Line) and paid parking is available.
