Women have been a part of the United States military dating back to the Revolutionary War. However, their visibility was heightened recently with the announcement of the lifting of the ban of women in combat.

Ever wonder what it was like serving as a woman Marine officer a few decades ago just as the cultures were changing? Here's your chance to hear about it first hand.

The author of the book,  Eyes Right: Confessions from a Woman Marine, is the featured guest at a free reading and book signing planned Friday, April 5, at Saint Leo University, 33701 State Road 52, Saint Leo, FL.

Tracy Crow served as a Marine officer and a military journalist and now teaches creative writing at Eckerd College. Eyes Right is a book about her military experiences in the 1980s.

Crow is scheduled to speak at 3:30 p.m. in the Student Community Center Greenfelder-Denlinger Boardroom C. She will be introduced by Saint Leo University creative writing teacher Gianna Russo.

The event can be followed live online if you can't make the presentation. You may view the presentation live at 3:30 p.m. ET. Contact Nikki Collins, assistant director of alumni relations, at (352) 588-8837 or nichole.collins@saintleo.edu for more information.
