My Military Dad
by Julie Easter While the sacrifices of fathers who go to war are well known, we often forget what the families sacrifice, especially the children. These are children who will not hear Dads voice or feel his hug for months at a time. These are dads who will not get to tell a child a bedtime story until their duty is complete. This is the point Julie W. Easter expresses so well in My Military Dad. Using simple language she describes a childs experience saying goodbye to his father who has been called to serve his country. They understand why he must go, but it does not help to hold back the tears. Read this book to a child you love. Imagine what it would be like to leave each other. Then the sacrifices of our military families will be very clear. ABOUT THE AUTHOR A former first grade teacher, Julie W. Easter is a stay-at-home mom raising three children: Nicholas, Noah, and Nate.

She and her husband, Stan, live in Walkertown, North Carolina. (2004, paperback, 42 pages)
