The Corniest Book Ever  Jan 30, 2007
I am a Navy Wife of four years facing my first deployment as a wife and I found this book to be the corniest thing I've ever read. EVER.

The "comical" stories everyone seems to be gushing over sound like they were pulled right out of a dusty old Reader's Digest. I didn't find the book to be informative and I found the definition section of the book to be incredibly trite and boring.

Example: Term Active Duty, Military Speak: Actively serving and deployable. Spouse Speak: This means your address is written in pencil in address books.

Dear God. How incredibly lame. Military members move. Yes. It's true. We ALL know that. Civilians know this. EVERYONE knows this. This poor attempt at humor is dull and over-used.

I didn't learn ANYTHING from this book and would NOT recommend this to anyone SERIOUSLY looking for information or advice about military life or deployments. You can get USEFUL information by going to your local Fleet and Family Support Center or attending a pre-deployment brief.
Great look at life during deployments  Jan 8, 2007
This book is a wonderful tribute to all the things that can happen during a deployment. It's a humorous approach to life as we know it in the military. Deployments come and go, it's how we survive them that tells us who we are!
While the very few negative comments on this site suggest the book is not for everyone, I disagree. It IS for everyone. Ms. Kay's book is not a protocol manual on what steps to take at a spouse coffee nor lists the hierarchy of a Family Readiness Group. It IS a book that helps families cope with the everyday life and mishaps that arise during deployment or periods of spearation. It is helpful to hear how others have gone before you, and to know that you are not in this alone.
I found this book to be a great shoulder to lean on, a confidante, and recommended it to my battalion spouses. The idea that "this, too, shall pass" makes me feel that we can always endure more than what we think we can. Deployments are not designed to make spouses stronger, that's just the unintended benefit. (Be sure to read the other books by Ellie Kay, as she has some fabulous tips on finances!)
Heavy on the "O" side of the military community  Nov 3, 2006
I was given this book as a gift from a dear friend during my husband's last deployment. While I found it very helpful, I couldn't help but feel at times that the contributors didn't really understand what it is like to be on the other side of the ranks. ...the Enlisted Soldier.... All of the illustrations were Officer's wives and families! I found myself asking "what about the issues that face the families of enlisted service members?"
Helpful as the Title Implies  Jun 29, 2006
Well written, easy read. The author takes the issues faced by todays military families and puts them into such a format allows anyone reading the book to gain helpful insight. I especially love how the author suggests the reader to copy certain pages of helpful hints to give to family and friends. The author makes it clear that it's ok for us to tell our non-military friends or familes what our needs are when dealing with seperations, etc. and suggests easy ways to do so.
Wonderful Read  Jun 15, 2006
I was watching the news one night and the author Ellie Kay was a guest...I was very interested in the book, so I was on here and reading other reviews when I started second guessing myself on this book or not, well I got it....and I couldn't put it down!! It is definatly more towards airforce and army than any other branch but it was still helpful. I've been a navy wife for almost 4 years now and I love it!! There was a lot of helpful hints on moves and how to deal with certain situations which was nice getting an outsiders point of view...anyway...would highly recommend this book!!!!!!
