I've been getting a lot of hits from people looking for "Lt. Kara Wade." I'm assuming that these people have fallen for the same trick I had. They received an email that purported to have photos from Valiant Shield, 2006, and one of the photos was of "Kara Wade" in the cockpit. But that's from a movie called Stealth. However, a real woman has flown the Stealth (in fact, at least 3, now), and that'd be Donna Kohout, whom I interviewed for Winged Victory, and you can read that interview here:
Donna Kohout: 1st woman to fly the F-117A - Nighthawk.
This is the photo of the fictional Kara Wade:

Kohout is one of the service people discussed in this book.
