Soldier, Author And Mother Speaks To Yakima Rotary Club

polsonShe’s an author, a mother and one of the first women to fly the Apache Attack Helicopter in the U.S. Army and she spoke to the Downtown Rotary Yakima Thursday. Her name is Shannon Huffman Polson and she appeared on the Morning News on KIT on Thursday morning where she praised the military for opening up more roles to women. “I think it’s fantastic that the roles are opening up but what I don’t think we should take for granted is how difficult it will be for them. Because the culture takes a lot longer to change than the policy.”
Polson is also the author of North of Hope and a book of essays titled The Way The Wild Gets Inside. The book North of Hope is about Polson’s parents who were killed by a grizzly bear in Alaska. In the book she retraces her parents final days along an arctic river.
