Spouse Calls: Messages From a Military Life by Terri Barnes

Spouse Calls: Messages From a Military Life is a collection of Terri Barnes's best military life columns of the past seven years, based on her popular weekly column, Spouse Calls, inStars and Stripes.
From her own kitchen table to Capitol Hill, Terri takes readers beyond the headlines and homecoming videos for an inside look at the day-to-day hardships, victories, and many ways military life shapes, challenges, and enriches its families.
Through poignant personal stories, incisive interviews, and emotive reflections, Terri creates an historical snapshot of American and world affairs, preserving an important piece of our nation's culture.
About her book, Terri says, “My hometown isn't a geographical location, but a place in American culture that is invisible to many people. My family lives in the hometown of military installations and military communities. This book is the story of the people we know and the life we live in the neighborhood of our American military life.”
