Excerpts from Thanks for Listening - High Adventure in Journalism and Diplomacy Foreword by Sandra Day O’Connor “Life changed for me one August day that summer of 1941,” notes Patricia Gates Lynch in her first chapter, “though I didn’t realize it until much later.” She was to embark on a career that took her from Army bases in the U.S. and Europe as a military wife, to the postwar U.S. radio arena, to worldwide prominence as a host on the Voice of America “Breakfast Show,” to an assignment with First Lady Patricia Nixon, and finally, to an Ambassadorship under President Ronald Reagan to Madagascar and the Comoros Islands.
