Great resource! Apr 29, 2008
This book is a great resource for military personnel and their families. It would have been a godsend when my kids were deployed to Iraq. I give a copy to everyone I know whose loved one is being deployed...and, unfortunately, that number is fairly high. The book has great tips, lots of resources, and is written in an easy-to-read, friendly style.
What You Need to Know and a Whole Lot More Sep 17, 2007
Let me preface by saying I do not know anyone who is deployed. That being said, I found "Mom's Field Guide" to be an awesome read.
This book is written in an easy-to-read style and is a wealth of information for those with loved ones on deployment. Tips and tricks on everything from gathering news from alternate sources to sending packages to soldiers overseas.
Fitted between the pages of invaluable information lie personal glimpses into the relationship of mother and soldier. These pages keep the reader truly involved in what is happening and not just reading the lines of a how-to guide. The interrupted style provides a shift from practical to personal. While reading Mom's Field Guide, I found myself looking forward to the next email from David (the author's son), hoping to find him well and intrigued by where he was in the midst of the battle.
Mom's Field Guide is not only an imperative read for those with loved ones in the military, but is an insightful, informative read for anyone.
An excellent resource Jun 23, 2007
I don't have a child in the service, but was attracted to this book anyway. Read it cover to cover, and found it to be a great read.
I think this book would be an excellent resource for anyone who has a child (or any relative--cousin, brother, sister, parent, etc.) in any branch of the service.
