Kayla Williams and Brian McGough are veterans of the Iraq War. They served in the 101st Airborne Division. Kayla was a sergeant and an Arabic linguist. Brian was a staff sergeant that earned a Bronze Star while also serving in Bosnia, Kosovo, and Afghanistan. Kayla’s new book, her second memoir, is, “Plenty of Time When We Get Home: Love and Recovery in the Aftermath of War.” It tells of the beginning of their relationship after they returned home from Iraq, overcoming their injuries together. Her first book is titled, “Love My Rifle More Than You: Young and Female in the U.S. Army.”
