Age Rating:

A veteran desires to become a professional poker player, believing it's safer than army combat, so she thought, until winning a poker pot from a psycho.

This story salutes the Native American Indians and all females who, had, are, and will serve in the U.S. Armed Forces.

The story is set in a near future war in some desert country. Following Shawna Chenoa (her tribal name is Fire Dancer) through her trials and tribulations in war, peace, and crime. In the US Army, she is a Lieutenant in charge of a Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical testing and compliance unit. Her unit falls into combat where they are forced to become Infantry soldiers very quickly. Her platoon happens upon and rescues several American POWs and shortly later a Russian POW. That Russian later gives the story a twisting ending.

Lieutenant Chenoa witnessed many deaths in her platoon. She and many survivors suffered bloody combat wounds to include PTSD. She resigns her commission and pursues a career as a professional poker player. She believes poker is a safer vocation than fighting a war; until she wins a large poker pot from a psycho.

She must somehow send that psycho to hell, to save the lives of her friends to include her own.
