Deployment book – written by a Sarge!

March 13, 2009 · Filed Under Deployment, LAW, Military Parents, National Guard Parents, Parents News 

A Department of Defense counselor, Sgt.  Marc CB Maxwell (whose  blog is here) has been counseling family members of deployed military for years.   He realized that many of us need a guide of some kind to get through deployments – and when he couldn’t find one, he decided to write one!   Surviving Military Separation – a 365 Day Activity Guide for the Families of Deployed Personnel is that book.  Talk about Military Ingenuity.. if you can’t buy one, make one!

Thanks to Andi at Spousebuzz (h/tip Andi!) I contacted Sgt.  Maxwell and asked him if this was directed only to spouses and children.   He has assured me that there is something here for everyone in  the family!

If you have this book, or if anyone in the family has one, let us know about it.

    An organization I work with, the Military Child Education Coalition, also created a deployment handbook for families with young children. Thought you might be interested to check it out:

    Thanks for sharing! I just ordered this book on for $12.99 – great website – am usually able to find even out of print books there. They have more. When I finish reading this, I am very willing to share. Our Military Family Support Group did an exellent class on “The Emotional Stages of Deployment” for us before our soldiers deployed. But recently we’ve encountered some surprises that have stretched us to the max. One Army Mama Bear
