Deployment book – written by a Sarge!
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.
