My son misses his dad (who is on another overseas deployment), so, I bought this book for him. I didn't know if it would be appropriate (I worried it may be too mature for him - he is only 11). But the book was perfect! The story was written by a Soldier and his son during a deployment, who shared some scars. I was suprised that my son (who is normally very reserved) reacted to the story. We actually had real conversations about what he was thinking about and why his daddy had to leave to fight so far away. Thank you for writing this - helped more than you will ever know.

When my father and I first began drafting this book, I was about 8 years old. It was a way for my father and I to connect with each other on a deeper level. However, as it evolved and progressed, this book became something that I could be proud of. The perspective of a military brat is one that is often overlooked and neglected. This story adequately portrays the interpretation and appearance of the events that unfold through the eyes of a military child. Although some parts are a bit rough at the edges, I feel that it was a fine job for our first attempt.
A follow-up is in the works, showing the progression in awareness and understanding as I grew from young child to young adult.
