I'd been wondering when someone was going to write something like this. So many military children being confused and emotional when a parent has to leave on deployment. Chandelle Walker did a very nice job putting it in perspective for kids to understand. Two thumbs up and a salute to her and her book. And to her husband...thank you for your service.
