Spouse Calls: Messages From a Military Life is a collection of the best military life columns by respected journalist Terri Barnes, based on her popular weekly Spouse Calls column in Stars and Stripes. Through poignant personal stories, incisive interviews, and emotive reflections, Terri gives readers an inside look at the day-to-day hardships, victories, and many ways military life shapes, challenges, and enriches its families. Topics include motherhood, faith, friendship, family ties, war, current events, sacrifice, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Stories Around the Table: Laughter, Wisdom, and Strength in Military Life, written by more than forty military family members and edited by Barnes, serves up true vignettes from military life’s everyday and extraordinary moments. From tragic to humorous, these candid conversations shed insight on many aspects of life from a military perspective: friendship, depression, marriage, parenting, careers, children with special needs, infertility, mobile life, overseas assignments, deployment, reunion, finances, PTSD, grief, faith, and more.
