Show Notes

Many of us have heard the stories about what goes on at the Military Academies, some of which seem outlandish or incomprehensible.   Listeners, followers and outside interviewers all want to know-- "did that shit really happen?"  Moreover, how can someone with Laurie's personality and stature make it through the gauntlet of discipline, academia, military training, hazing and the grueling physical requirements?  This episode answers many of those questions, as well as the over arching theme of the difficulties of a woman holding one's own in a historically male dominated and controlled environment.  Laurie was one of the earliest graduating classes of women, and she tackles the stereotypes, how she personally navigated through her four years and how she applied it to her life outside of the military.  With candor and a little laughter, Lisa and Laurie tackle the questions and topics that many have thrown their way-- many of which can be applied to all women in any challenging environment.  Find out what friends Laurie thinks would make it through. and  buckle up, Beat Navy and HOOAH!
