'Newly revised and updated, here is the complete story of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, founder of the Missionaries of Charity and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, a woman regarded by millions as a contemporary saint for her dedication to serving the poorest of the poor. From her childhood in the Balkans as a member of a remarkably openhearted and religious family to her work in India, from attending the victims of war-torn Beirut to pleading with George Bush and Saddam Hussein to choose peace over war, Mother Teresa was driven by an absolute faith. During her lifetime, Mother Teresa resisted having her full biography written. Then in 1991, realizing that accounts of her life and work could inspire others, she gave Kathryn Spink, who had long been intimately involved with the work of Mother Teresa and her order, permission to proceed with a complete biography on the understanding that it would not be finished until after her death (September 5, 1997). This revised and updated edition will include: - The beatification and continuing process of canonization for Mother Teresa - What happened to the Missionaries of Charity after her death - An intimate look into Mother Teresa's 'dark night of the soul' which has garnered much media attention in recent years, including a published book of her journals (Come Be My Light) Mother Teresa consistently claimed that she was simply responding to Christ's boundless love for her and for all of humanity, bringing to the world a great and living lesson in joyful and selfless love. This book is a special look into her extraordinary faith, work, and life'--

ANATOMY OF A NAVAL AVIATOR Ensign Jeff Anderson, was your average JO (Junior Officer) trying to make through Flight School and earn his Navy Wings of Gold. A great weekend with a beautiful woman started his education on the Unwritten Rules of Naval Aviation. A jealous Ex., called in a favor on the Good Old Boy network to keep Jeff and his new girlfriend apart. Jeff's CO (Commanding Officer} ripped him a new one and threatened to terminate his career if he continued his relationship. Caught in the middle of a power struggle, Ensign Anderson was the unfortunate victim. Jeff's dreams are crushed when he was assigned to Fleet Logistics Support Squadron Twenty Four (VR-24), flying the CT-39G Sabreliner, at NAS Sigonella, Sicily. Jeff knew he was doomed by the reaction of his peers and the fact that he could not find the Naval Air Station (NAS) on a map of Sicily. Jeff's dread increased as he was introduced to his new Base, aircraft, and squadron mates. His professional development and education as a Naval Officer was going to be lead by a bunch of deadwood officers who each in their own turn, 'Screwed up their own career.' VR-24 was a squadron were the 'Best of the Best, did not go.' The Navy's 24-7 operational tempo and their motto of 'Do more with less', clashed heavily with the local's laid back lifestyle. This constant friction always took a few points off the Fun Meter and made life miserable at Sig. (Sigonella). The civil war in Lebanon thrust VR-24 out on the front lines supporting the Fleet at Bagel Station. VR-24 was a support unit, it was never equipped, maned, or prepared to be a squadron at the 'Tip of the Spear.' As the Marines went ashore in Beirut to become part of the Multi-National Peace Keeping Force, the increased operational tempo stretched the talent and leadership of the unit. The Operations Officer (Ops O) was the first person to distinguish himself in front of VR-24's superiors. Trying to save the day for one of the helicopter crews on deployment in Cyprus he earned himself and the CO an ass chewing from the Commander, Sixth Fleet, a Vice Admiral. The Ops O quickly turned his wrath on his fellow officer to deflect the attention from himself. The Ops O recognized that he had just earned the top spot on the squadron's Shit List. The only way he was going to recover from that was to break out the Unwritten Rules of Naval Aviation to recover from his foul up. Jeff and his fellow JO's education was now in full force. The inner workings of a Navy Squadron are revealed as VR-24 tries to maintain it's operational requirements. There was one constant at VR-24, Good news was always crushed by bad news. The Golden Boy, Lt. Reynolds finally received a reward for his stellar performance in the squadron and received a Warfare Transition out of the black hole that was the VR Community. The word from the Detailer was F-14's, Lt. Reynolds was off to Fighter Town. But not so fast, in the Navy's eyes VR is a pit that you only place things in to, you never pull anything back out. Lt. Reynolds orders are changed and squadron morale sinks to a new low. The Commanding Officer of NAS Sigonella was preparing for his own Change of Command and had a lesson to teach to every officer on the Base. RHIP, Rank Has It's Privileges, in a stunning display of bending or breaking every rule in the book. The Base CO ordered the CO of VR-24 to schedule a 'Training Flight' to London for the Base CO's enjoyment. A mishap with the Sabreliner costs the taxpayers dearly. To the amazement of all the officers at Sig., the Base CO demonstrated his kind of leadership and pressed home the fact that he could get away with murder. The Black Stallions of Helicopter Combat Support Squadron Four (HC-4) rolled into Sigonella. VR-24 had a new sister squadron take up residence and they assumed the mission as the primary VOD (Vertical Onboard Delivery) asset in the Med. This event had some very serious consequences for VR-24. The most serious was the transfer of all of the personnel in the helo component across the parking lot to HC-4. This stripped VR-24 of all of it's quality Lieutenant Commanders (O-4's). The presence of another squadron at Sigonella showed how fouled up VR-24 really was. The stressful Ops tempo and the lack of middle
