From School Library Journal:

Gr 2–5—Delving deep into the specific situations that military families face, these titles aim to educate young readers about the history of and difference among military branches—useful whether readers have a relative in the military or not. By employing a simple first-person narrative from the perspective of a child, complicated concepts (how people enlist, what training entails, and what life on an army base is like) are broken down into easily understandable terms. The discussion of how life will change when a parent or loved one joins the military, and the difficulties of deployment, is well done and necessary. Captioned color photos help to further illustrate the concepts being discussed in the text. VERDICT This series is useful for military families and general collections as well.
