What People Are Saying

Alma J. Powell
This sensitive book helps children understand their changed family environments and offers valuable suggestions of healthy coping skills. Ultimately, this unique book encourages readers to express themselves, overcome fears, identify support systems, and find hope.
— Alma J. Powell (Chair of America's Promise Alliance)
Bobby Henline
As a wounded solider with physical burns, amputations, scars, and invisible wounds, I'm so excited that this book exists for military families. Often, when trying to get through difficult times, we don't know where to start, but once we get started, we see that we're making progress. Ellen Sabin's The Healing Heroes Book helps military family members find a starting place! It kick-starts the conversations that begin the healing process. It's hard as a wounded service member to admit we need help and explain to our children why we act different because of our invisible wounds. To me, my family members are the heroes that stood by my side to get me stronger. Thank you, Ellen, for giving us this well-needed book to support military families.
— Bobby Henline (Wounded Warrior [4-tour Iraqi War Veteran] currently, Comedian and Speaker)
General Stanley McChrystal
The Healing Heroes Book, by Ellen Sabin, covers an important and often difficult topic. If you want to give back to those who have served and made sacrifices for our country, share this book.
— General Stanley McChrystal (U. S. Army, Retired)
Jay E. Berkelhamer
Honest, direct, helpful, therapeutic, and above all a priceless aid to military children. This book belongs with each and every parent, health provider, therapist, or teacher seeking ways to support children in coping with a loved one wounded in service.
— Jay E. Berkelhamer MD (Past President American Academy of Pediatrics)
Lee and Bob Woodruff
When service members sustain wounds, it affects the lives of their spouses and children. This book fills an enormous unmet need as it supports the whole military family. The author wraps insight, wisdom, research, and practical advice into a book that is engaging and hopeful.
— Lee and Bob Woodruff (Journalists)
Mike and Deborah Mullen
Ellen Sabin's wonderful book teaches all of us about the impact of the wounds of war, both visible and invisible. It is a special gift to the children of the wounded and their families, who provide the healing spirit for so many remarkable young men and women who have sacrificed so much for our country.
— Mike Mullen (Admiral, U.S. Navy (Ret.) and 17th Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff) and Deborah Mullen (Military Family and Veteran's Advocate)
