FROM THE FOREWORD BY SENATOR JOHN McCAIN: It is the company we keep, more than anything else, which forms our character. Twenty-two years of my life were spent in military service. I served with great men, many of whom paid a much higher price for their patriotism than was asked of me. I was blessed with the company of heroes, and it has made all the difference in the world.

During the Vietnam War, a group of students in Los Angeles started a campaign to show their support for prisoners of war. To this day, I continue to receive their POW bracelets, usually engraved with my name or that of a friend, which citizens wore during our imprisonment as a gesture of solidarity. In 1971, the Vietnamese dramatically altered the way they treated their prisoners of war. They had finally begun to realize that Americans cared about what happened to us. I believe this change can be attributed, in part, to the POW bracelet publicity campaign and the similar efforts of community-based programs.

In the years after my military career, I have been privileged to serve in elective office. One political duty that weighs heavily on my mind is the care and support of the servicemen and women who have, in the past and now, put themselves in harm's way to protect American lives and freedoms. Community and homegrown support are essential to the strength of our military forces.

The Military Family Network seeks to raise awareness of such military-friendly programs all over the world. Military families often lack adequate support as they move constantly, leaving behind friends and familiar associations and resources. As an information company owned by military spouses and veterans, The Military Family Network is uniquely qualified to facilitate these transitions.

The guidebook Your Military Family Network is a lifeline for veterans, military families and anyone uprooted in the name of duty. It lists resources offered in each state and businesses that offer military discounts and military-friendly employment are also featured. Everyday my office receives letters from military families seeking guidance to these very resources. The Military Family Network encourages families to recommend companies that demonstrate a capacity for military- and family-friendly service to the Neighbor of Choice business network. This is a valuable frame of reference for nomadic families that encourages them to build community relationships quickly.

Your Military Family Network then builds upon this database of community knowledge with insights from military members and spouses, as well as from leaders in their specific fields. Such topics range from an expert's definition and suggestions for treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, to helpful chapters provided by the Commissary Agency and the Military Exchange services on how best to use their benefits.

THE resource to all the benefits due to military families  Mar 28, 2008
For military families who are facing real hardships, this book is like a dictionary of resources and benefits that can help them. For instance, if your family has a service member who is deployed, you can find things like your legal rights, medical benefits, who can help you when your car breaks down and your finances are low, resources for emergencies. If you are just coping with the normal daily challenges of military family life, you can learn how to shop smarter; get a better education or a better job; rent, buy, or live in military housing; even ways to get healthier and have fun, while saving for the future. I wish I could give this book to every military family I know.
