Janie Mines applies the religious themes taught by her family in a real-world exposé of how those childhood experiences prepared her to enter the class of 1980 at the U.S. Naval Academy. She reveals a painful chapter in American history. It is an insightful, uniquely personal journey of fortitude, faith and resilience told by the young woman who stood alone and forced both the institution and the armed forces to look in the mirror. Janie Mines is one of the strongest women I know. Her story will stir the conscience of the reader and provoke a truly deeper conversation of race and gender relations in our country. Sadly, it reveals how culture can undermine and corrode the best intentions of law, policy, guidance, and the leadership. —Patrick Walsh, graduate, U.S. Naval Academy, Class of 1977
