    A realistic look into the life of an army wife

    This book was a very imformative and heart felt story of one womens year alone while her husband is serving in Iraq. I am an army girlfriend and this book really opened my eyes to the feelings and pain that anyone in a relationship with a military person goes thru. It was comforting in that I am not alone in my struggles and journey. The author did a great job of making you really feel all the ups and downs along with her! I would recommend this to anyone who wants an inside look of the life of an army wife.

    365 struggles

    365 Deployment Days is a story written by Sara Dwalt. She describes her story about living without her husband for a full year. She learns how to do things on her own in her home in Fort Hood. Texas.
    The story starts off with Sara describing her first few months with being married to her husband Brandon. Sara tells that she hadn't been even married for four months and her husband hadn't even been in the army for one month when Septerber 11th 2001 happened. Once her husband Brandon left for Iraq Sara made a routine in her everyday life to keep herself moving, She had to battle the absence of her husband, She had to do things on her own, Her heroes while her husband was away were the pre-k children she taught on the base. Sara goes through a lot of difficulties but with strong will power she overcomes a lot with her husband gone.
    I would rate it a 7 out of 10, 10 being the best. It wasn't what I expected. It was mainly scattered short stories. Although she had good meanings and life experiences, but it wasn't written in a way that a storyline followed,

    Very Moving Book

    My husband has recently been deployed and I loved this book. At least I know I'm not alone. I liked this book so much that I've asked my family and friends to read it also, so that they can have a better idea of what I'm going through right now. Its a super easy read, I thought. I would recommend this to any wife that has a husband either deploying or is deployed.

    For the silent ranks: Military loved ones left behind

    For anyone dealing with a deployment, especally for the first time, this is the book to read. Sara did an amazing job recording all the emotions of a deployment. With the heartache of being alone and trying to deal with life and dealing with the stress of trying to make time for your loved one when it is so difficult to communicate. Everything in this book was something I could relate to. It was good to have a heads up as to what was going to be coming within the next few months of my soldier being deployed. This book is very helpful for me and I see it as a great book for anyone to read just so more people know what military families have to go through. It has been the most useful and inspirational deployment book I have read!

    Brave

    This book helped me get an idea of what to expect as my husband also is preparing for his first deployment. I do believe that I have gone through almost every emotion she did just while he was away at training and I knew he was safe. Very good insight.

    The Worst book I have ever read

    As a Soldier in the US Army and so is my husband. I have the up most respect for what we do and every other Soldier as well. This woman does not respect what her husband is doing and can't handle being by herself for a year, talking about how her husband a banded her. Okay, last time I checked the Soldiers were working for something in Iraq. Whether you are for it or not you should at least respect your husband or wife and what they are doing.
