America has now been deploying military service members in Iraq and Afghanistan for over 8 years. These separations are leaving military families stressed from multiple deployments. Even in peacetime we ll have over 60,000 troops deployed to fight Global Terrorism. The book, Im Already Home Again tackles the challenges of keeping our military families connected and strong while away from each other due to deployments and temporary assignments. Military families are especially vulnerable to tough separations. Now there s an easy-to-follow, practical guide to fun and inexpensive ways for keeping our service men and women connected to their families while away in service to their country. Im Already Home Again - Keeping your family close while on assignment or deployment is an essential tool for military personnel preparing for active duty. The first edition of this work, Im Already Home, is widely used by over 20,000 families. Now, expanded and updated, this book includes special features that make it even more useful and relevant to the unique demands of the military family. This book includes 212 connection ideas, over 75 resource websites, (compiled from over 3200 interviews with military families who have experienced deployments) an expanded section on reunion and reintegration, added chapters for your extended family, schools, spiritual protection, and community/neighborhood services. All this wonderful information is combined with new stories and the original inspiration. Im Already Home Again, now read by over 50,000 families, has been called a message of hope. Additionally, this book is a valuable resource for private civilian contractors who are away from their families while conducting business overseas.

As a military separations specialist, Elaine has been writing for military families and speaking at conferences and military installations since 2003. During the creation of her books, Im Already Home...Again and The Road Home, she interviewed over 3200 military families about exactly what they did to keep their families strong during separations, and resilient when reconnecting again. Her work as an active civilian has been featured in Ladies Home Journal, The NY Times, and over 110 other publications including 6 in foreign languages. She s been on radio, national TV (including MSNBC, FOXNews and the Montel Show) to talk about the importance of keeping family ties strong. Elaine is honored to be the recipient of the ABC 7 Everyday Hero award for establishing the free Flat Daddy project. Her mission is to make sure that every American deployed or on temporary assignment in the service of their country knows how to remain in close contact with their loved ones left behind.
