Our Deployment/Reunion Basic Pack includes two paperback books: Surviving Deployment and Life After Deployment by Karen Pavlicin.
Surviving Deployment is your personal guide to turning an otherwise lonely and challenging situation into a positive experience. Learn what to expect, how to prepare, and how to personally grow as individuals and families. Your survival gear will range from a sturdy toilet plunger to the fine art of letter writing. You'll manage financial changes, help children express their feelings, and discover a renewed appreciation for everyday life. Solid information. Practical checklists. Personal stories from hundreds of families.
Life After Deployment captures the tender and moving stories of military families during their reunion. Service members and their spouses, parents, fiancées, and children share the joy and anxiety of homecoming, the adjustments of living together again, and how they coped with anger, depression, PTSD, injuries, grief, and other challenges. Some families had fairytale endings. Most worked hard to rebuild their relationships after much time and change. A few suffered great losses. These military families talk candidly about what their experience was really like, offering hope and advice to others who walk this journey.
"I felt so guilty for a lot of the emotions I'd had during my husband's deployment and reunion. And now, we are going through it all again with our son. It's such a comfort to find out I'm not alone! I was incredibly touched by these stories. Thank you so much for blessing us with this book, your keen insights, and amazing honesty." --Julie LaBelle, military wife and mom
