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.


Adventures of an Air Force Wife [Kindle Edition] 

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a military wife? Did you know that young military families often struggle to survive on military pay? 
Read the book to learn more about the adventures and struggles of an 18 year old Air Force wife. If being a young military wife wasn't difficult enough, add a baby to the family. 
The adventures begin at Chanute Air Force Base in Rantoul, Illinois where the family of three lived in their first apartment. An overflowing bathtub, a missing hamster, and some too close neighbors added to the mayhem. 
To make life even more exciting, the young family was forced to leave their "comfort zone" in the midwest and relocate to cold, snowy Minot, North Dakota. Can you imagine moving 1,400 miles from home in the middle of winter at tender age of 18? Arriving in a far off northern tier state with no home, no furniture, and not much money presented many unique challenges.
