“No one can totally prepare us for the emotional roller coaster deployments and reintegration brings, but this book will give you tools that will help the process immensely.” — Kathy Guzzon for Homefront United Network

Life After Deployment captures the tender and moving stories of military families during their reunion. Service members and their spouses, parents, fiancées, and children share the joy and anxiety of homecoming, the adjustments of living together again, and how they coped with anger, depression, PTSD, injuries, grief, and other challenges.

Some families had fairytale endings. Most worked hard to rebuild their relationships after much time and change. A few suffered great losses. These military families talk candidly about what their experience was really like, offering hope and advice to others who walk this journey.

The new edition of this important work features additional stories from all active duty and national guard serve branches as well as up-to-date information from more recent conflicts.

“…a must have for today’s military families facing deployments.” — Alanna Schmidtke, North Dakota National Guard family support

“I felt so guilty for a lot of the emotions I’d had during my husband’s deployment and reunion. And now, we are going through it all again with our son. It’s such a comfort to find out I’m not alone! I was incredibly touched by these stories. Thank you so much for blessing us with this book, your keen insights, and amazing honesty.” —Julie LaBelle, military wife and mom
