Latina Warriorby Col. Lisa Carrington Firmin, USAF (Ret.), with artwork by Maj. Christina Helferich-Polosky, USA (Ret.)
Latina Warrior is a collection of poems, prose, and art in which Col. Lisa Carrington Firmin, USAF (Ret.) weaves her journey in deeply personal, intense, explicit, and sometimes humorous expression. The book is in four major parts: Early Years y Familia, The Military and Combat, Life after the Military, and Healing and the Road to Authenticity.
Accompanying Lisa’s story expressed through poetry is the diverse art of Major Christina Helferich-Polosky, USA (Ret.). Included in a Reflections section are glimpses into the creation of each poem and art piece, demonstrating the unique collaboration between Lisa and Christina. Cover design by Sean Robertson. Christina used a photo of Lisa in a helicopter in Iraq as her inspiration, to honor both her Latina heritage and her military experiences.
