I’m Phyllis Zimbler Miller and I started this site to feature documentaries and films that showcase our military.
As a fiction and nonfiction author as well as a member of the Department of Defense’s Bloggers Roundtable and the Military Writers Society of America, I often write about military topics. My novel MRS. LIEUTENANT is inspired by my time as a new Mrs. Lieutenant in the spring of 1970 during the Vietnam War.
I have now written PINKY SWEAR featuring one of the four point-of-view women in MRS. LIEUTENANT in this YA short story that takes place when the protagonist is in 10th grade at Ft. Knox in 1964.
In addition, my husband and I have written the military thriller LT. COMMANDER MOLLIE SANDERS. Mitch is a member of the U.S. Naval Institute and of the Association of Former Intelligence Officers.
And now I am writing the short story SOLOMON’S JUSTICE as part of my mission to spread the word about combat-trauma PTSD to encourage people to get help. See www.SolomonsJustice.com
P.S. Inspired by my time working as a civilian for the 66th Military Intelligence Group in Munich, Germany, is my spy thriller CIA FALL GUY. And I’ve woven a non-combat trauma PTSD subplot into my cozy mystery CAST THE FIRST STONE.
P.S. In a way this project brings me back full-cycle to 40 years ago:
During part of the time when my husband and I were stationed with the U.S. Army in Munich from 1970 to 1972 I had a GS-2 job with the Army Air Force Motion Picture Service. All day long I typed — on a manual typewriter — the list of 16 mm films going to different hilltops in Italy where small units of U.S. troops were stationed. (Eventually my security clearance came through and I moved up to a GS-3 position with the 66th Military Intelligence Group.)
Here are my other military-related projects:
