I wrote this book Deployed: The Survival Guide for Families at War for everyone, but I think it is especially written for spouses of active duty members. While working on the Marine Corp Air Ground Combat Center (MCAGCC) in 29 Palms California I compiled my best helps for families into this book. Being a marine is hard and being a marine's spouse can be at least as hard in different ways. Many a good woman broke down crying in my office while their husband was deployed overseas. I've seen the pain and as a therapist I have a unique perspective of what women suffer at home. I hope this book helps lots of women and men find peace and comfort and helpful information to get through deployment.
