With the 4th of July just around the corner, it’s time to focus on our service men and women and pay them the tribute they deserve for the hard work they do. One military family-support organization called Blue Star Families, has recently joined with Vulcan Productions to launch a free e-book. This e-book is intended to assist military families to cope with the emotional upheaval involved with deployment and reintegration.
The handbook is called Everyone Serves: A Handbook for Family and Friends of Service Members During Pre-deployment, Deployment and Reintegration and is available online at BlueStarFam.org/EveryoneServes, and for download from Amazon, Apple, Barnes & Noble, Google, Kobo and Sony platforms.
This free resource is being made available to over 3 million military families and friends including two million children. As described on the Blue Star Families “A unique handbook, Everyone Serves was developed by military family members to help the family, friends and support network of United States service members better understand what to expect from the deployment and reintegration life cycle and gain the tools to keep them and their families strong before, during and after separations.”
As Bonnie Benjamin-Phariss, Director of Vulcan Productions said, “Everyone Serves provides a great starting point for anyone who is or has been affected by a deployment or reintegration. As the wars come to an end, more service members and families are transiting to civilian life or managing the long-term care of a family member. These are all areas addressed in Everyone Serves, making it an important resource for all military service members, families and friends.”
