Shooting the Moon by Frances O'Roark Dowell
Jamie is an army brat who has heard all her life about how great the military is from her Colonel father. When her older brother decides to skip college and go to fight in Vietnam instead Jamie is thrilled that T.J. will get to live what they have always dreamed about. So she is very surprised when it seems that her father is trying to talk T.J. out of enlisting. And she is even more surprised when T.J. starts sending her film to develop full of pictures that paint a completely different picture of the war than she has always imagined.
