Your spouse was just called to duty. You may be a seasoned military wife who has endured deployments and separations before, possibly suffering silently. You may be the spouse of a Reservist, who never expected to be in a combat situation. You may be a newlywed, with no experience at all with the military. Regardless of your current position and experience as a military spouse, Encouragement for America's Hidden Heroes will help support you-by providing survival tips and techniques created by one who understands; one who has experienced it and knows that she will likely experience it again. The author created this book so that others may have a head-start on preparing for and successfully managing a long-term deployment.
