The Homefront Club: The Hardheaded Woman's Guide to Raising a Military Family
By Jacey Eckhart
"'It is a job I love,' she says, 'but it doesn't do enough. Every week I get requests for past columns about moving, infidelity, in-laws, kids, deployment, and "that one about geographic bachelors."' Current books written for military families don't cover those topics. They admirably address the nuts and bolts of military life. They tell the least initiated spouse what to call the chief and when to get in touch with Navy Relief and how to sign up for dental insurance. But they don't offer any kind of philosophy about how to live well within the military community. Eckhart's book addresses this need, a need that has grown all the more glaring post-9/11."
