So that's why we're over there... Aug 24, 2005
My husband is currently in Iraq and our new baby girl is due any day now. I bought this book after hearing about it from some of the other soldier's wives from the unit who are deployed. At first I must admit that I thought the book looked a little skimpy and thin, but soon found myself reading it 3 times in-a-row with tears running down my face. It's a real eye opener and reminds me why our soldiers are deployed...so that all children can sleep safe in their beds. I highly recommend this book to anyone who ever questions why our soldiers are currently deployed, who (like me) sometimes find themselves getting a bad attitude about the deployment, or can't find the words to tell their children why mom or dad is overseas and not home with us. This is a good book and a good reminder. JT

"This book really shows what the war on terror is really all about. It is a great reminder for the world that freedom does come at a heavy price, but is well worth it in the end."
This book hits home to those of us that wait at home... May 3, 2005
As the founder of MarineParents.com, Inc. I receive many books in the mail with hopes from the author that we'll embrace it and put a link on our web site to it. It's rare that one touches my heart the way this simple book has. Beautifully illustrated, the poignant meaning touches my heart and truly hits home to those of us who wait at home. This is my Marine son's third deployment in Iraq, and this time, he's left behind his wife and her daughter, both of whom miss him terribly. And this has been the hardest deployment for my son, with a wife and dauther waiting at home for him to come home safely and soon. A real tribute to the families that wait...I recommend this book as a keepsake of the emotions we've all endured during these past two and a half years. God Bless and Semper Fi. --Tracy
