About the Author:

Janelle Hill is the President and lead consultant of PBS Marketing/Federal Concierge LLC., a consulting provider supporting a variety of project and program needs to businesses, contractors, and the federal government. She is the coauthor of The Wounded Warrior Handbook (Government Institutes, 2008).

Cheryl Lawhorne is an original plank holder in the Wounded Warrior Battalion West at Camp Pendleton, California. She now serves as the Deputy Project Manager for the Recovery Care Coordination Program with the Wounded Warrior Regiment in Quantico, Virginia under the guidance of Headquarters Marine Corps and the Office of the Secretary of Defense.

Don Philpott has been writing, reporting, and broadcasting on international events, trouble spots, and major news stories for almost 40 years. He is the author or coauthor of more than 90 books, including The Wounded Warrior Handbook.

Review:

This guide offers advice to military spouses on dealing with communication, anger management, drug use, intimacy, task-sharing, and even breastfeeding. Marrying into the military brings major changes, such as frequent moves, unaccompanied assignments, long hours, and combat deployments, and the authors (Philpott and Hill previously penned The Wounded Warrior Handbook) address numerous concerns, providing straight talk on life with the enlisted. About the honeymoon, for instance, they suggest giving a wedding night gift; 'if orders come through and you're separated for a time, you'll have something wonderful to hold on to.' They also share trade secrets, like the Armed Forces Vacation Club, a program allowing military members to rent luxury condos at greatly discounted rates, and urge newlyweds to 'splurge on one night in a great hotel rather than two in a mediocre one.' Serious concerns are dealt with in the direct manner one expects from the armed services, and lengthy 'Counseling' and 'Wounded Warrior' chapters provide detailed advice for handling partners who may be dealing with drug addiction, physical wounds, PTSD, or suicidal notions. For the intended readership, this will prove to be a valuable guide. (Publishers Weekly)
