#9225. This new book offers an inspiring collection of 50 personal stories from more than 40 military family writers, including spouses, parents, children, and service members. From poignant to practical, tragic to humorous, these candid conversations shed heartfelt insight on many aspects of military-specific life deployment, reunion, combat injury, post-traumatic stress, and frequent moves.
The book also explores topics common to both military and civilian families, including marriage, education, parenting, friendship, faith, finances, depression, infertility, and grief, and how military life influences the experience.
Each entry is like a personal conversation over lunch, dinner or coffee, and the collection is like a houseful of friends old and new, each bringing their insight and wisdom to the gathering.
