body text

Rose Mattie served two tours in Iraq, and in 2011 she made history as one of the first women selected to receive special forces training and embed with Green Berets in Afghanistan, while supporting Navy Seals on missions. The stories of Rose and her “battle sisters” are documented in the book Ashley’s War. After deployment, she trained to become a Blackhawk Helicopter Pilot, earned her wings in 2013 and flew for the Arizona National Guard until 2018.
