Great Stories That Help Family Members to Honor Their Fallen Hero
Military Wives and Widows Tell Their Stories. An anthology of 26 stories sponsored by the Society of Military Widows
Whether living on base here in the United States or abroad in France, Germany, Japan, Taipei or Turkey, adjustments have to be made and the wives and children learn to live independent lives. Friendships are made with other families that may continue long after the service member has retired.
Including WWII to present day, the United States has been involved in 19 wars or conflicts that resulted in the deaths of service members. The book includes a table listing the number of deaths showing this.
Stories that begin with falling in love with a man in uniform tell what happened next.
Many of these stories recall the day when the widow received word that her husband had died. A ring at the doorbell, two uniformed service members standing there and no words have to be spoken.
After writing about getting the worst news possible, these women tell of their adjustment to widowhood. They are proud to be survivors.
