Endorsements

"As an Army brat I know firsthand that its not only our military men and women who serve the country¬ótheir spouses and children serve proudly as well. Armin Brott has contributed his own brand of service with this wonderful book - a great resource with useful checklists and advice that covers every stage of childhood. It will help ease what are difficult journeys."
-- Linda Powell, daughter of General Colin Powell, US Army Ret., former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff

"Too often, those who do the most for us are supported the least. Military fathers would certainly fall into this category. Brotts wonderfully informative book, The Military Father, is not only a much needed salute to the importance of these unique dads but it is also a field manual for their most important front of all - the home front.
-- Roland C. Warren, President, the National Fatherhood Initiative
