  1. I cannot believe I am the 1st to leave a comment. I do not have this book. I will put it on my summer reading list if I am truly first.

  2. I read this book recently and i felt very grateful to Dana Reinhardt because while i don’t have a brother in the military, i have an uncle in the military. And in this book the way she describes how they are when they come home could not be more correct. I recommend this book to anyone, because it is for those who have family who have served (are serving), those who are serving (have served), those who know someone who has served or is serving, those who support our military everyday in every kind of way, and those who don’t. On a final note, every member of my family, near or far, has read this book now, including my uncle.
