Peace Cord Supporter Joanne King Herring Releases New Memoir!

ARZU STUDIO HOPE and Peace Cord supporter Joanne King Herring has released her new memoir!

Julia Roberts played her in Charlie Wilson’s War, but the real-life Texan is far more interesting than any movie could capture. The international socialite, global political activist and former Texas television anchor, Joanne King Herring is known for her improbable fight with the Mujahedeen against the former Soviet Union. But her full story – with all its God, guns and Gucci glory – is even more remarkable.

She tells her fascinating continuing story in her own words with charm and delight in her extraordinary new memoir, Diplomacy and Diamonds: My Wars from the Ballroom to the Battlefield.

Fan Wears Peace Cord to USS Memorial

Peace Cord supporter Lainee Pegelow wore her Air Force Dress bracelet while visiting the USS Arizona Memorial and sent us a photo! She included the following message:

“A trip to the USS Arizona Memorial was both moving and memorable. Nearly 70 years after the event that plunged the United States into World War II, a pristine white structure gently floats above an iron tomb. A place of past hate and destruction, now surrounded by calm warm waters symbolizing remembrance and honor.”

Thanks for sharing for Wearing Peace Proudly, Lainee!
