Item Description...
This comprehensive handbook makes it a must have for every family separated by military deployment.

Publishers Description
In this unique and wonderfully thorough handbook, a military wife and mom shares practical advice about preparing and dealing with deployment of a loved one. Carol Vandesteeg helps families learn what to expect as they prepare for deployment, how to communicate while separated, helping children through the separation, and reuniting at the end of the tour of duty. When Duty Calls also addresses the subject that's so painful to face: the possibility that the loved one may not return.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Good Start  Jun 30, 2003
I went overboard when we got the news that my fiance would be deployed to a war zone. Because I had only felt the emotions, I decided it was time to actually find out ways to cope. Although what I hoped to get out of this wasn't in fact what I got.... I was still satisfied. It provided basic information on deployment lingo and personalized stories of the author's deployment experience. The one thing I found unsatisfactory for me was that it focuses on all sectors of the military.... and for those involved, we know that the marines, army, navy etc. are all very different, so there were parts I skipped around.

This book helped to put my mind at ease and focus on the task at hand. Very few things were new to me, but having all the info in the same place gave me peace of mind knowing that I was actually doing something to prepare myself and understand what HE was going though, which is the most important part!

Confusing  Jun 22, 2003
I found this book hard to follow. It was unclear to me who the audience was, it switched back and fourth between talking to children, spouses and servicemen. As a wife, it was hard to relate to anything in the book because I didn't feel as if the book was meant for me to read. It does have some interesting information, but nothing you can't find elsewhere.
A great help!  Apr 1, 2002
I am new to the military and this book has helped prepare me for the unevitable deployment of my husband. I touches topics from when you first find our that he's leaving to if he doesn't come back to reunions. The author relates a lot of the topics to her own experience when he husband was called for Operation Deserst Storm with only 2 hours notice. There is also an eitire chapter that gives a bunch of useful resources. The book is written in a way that is is useful for whichever spouse is at home, or if both are deployed, or if you are a single parent. By no means can this replace the support group of other wives, but it sure helps you understand what is going on!
