The Emmy award-winning news anchor of Outnumbered Overtime with Harris Faulkner and co-host of the talk show Outnumbered shares the lessons she learned growing up in a military family paying homage to the military ideals that shaped her and showing how everyone can benefit from bringing the wisdom of military service into their lives. Born into a military family, Harris Faulkner revered her father, a decorated career officer who served three tours of duty in Vietnam and raised his children with the values and ideals of the US military. Accompanying him from posting to posting, young Harris experienced firsthand how success in life was rooted in the knowledge, integrity, and leadership that came from her military surroundings. Indeed, these formative lessons in leadership and work ethic became the guiding principles for her career as a journalist, lessons she credits with her rise to become one of the top hosts on Fox News. Now, she shares the advice, wisdom, and tools that she absorbed through her military upbringing, examining how these ideals have shaped her professional and personal outlook and how everyone can incorporate them into their own lives. Using her father’s career as the backdrop to her experience, she explores the lessons in courage, duty, patriotism, and responsibility that helped her succeed, demonstrating the truth to the axiom that in military families everyone serves - together. Along the way she also interviews current and former military families, generals and other officers, and tells stories from her father’s career to illuminate how and why the message and mission of the military is so effective at changing lives both on and off the battlefield. This instructive book, part memoir, part motivational life guide, reminds us of our most important values - the keys to a successful life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Harris Faulkner.

When you enlist in the United States military, you don´t just sign yourself up for years of duty - you also commit your loved ones to a life of service all their own. No one knows this better than Elaine Brye, an army brat turned military wife turned military mom of four officers, each serving in a different branch of the military: air force, army, marine corps, and navy. Brye´s father and mother met while both serving in the US Army, and her childhood was that of a typical army brat, with frequent moves - some to faraway countries - dinner-table conversations full of military lingo, an ever-present anxiety during her father´s deployments to Vietnam and elsewhere, and family vacations to national monuments and battlefields. In 1976 - the first year women were accepted in the service academies and ROTC - Brye herself enlisted in the air force, where she would later meet her husband, an air force pilot. Now Elaine Brye is a mom to four military officers, and for more than a decade she´s endured countless teary goodbyes, sparse communication from boot camps and training summers, deployments, emotional airport reunions, empty chairs at Thanksgiving dinners, and sleepless hours waiting for phone calls in the night. She´s navigated the complicated tangle of emotions - pride, worry, fear, hope, and deep, enduring love - that accompanies life as a military mom. In Be Safe, Love Mom Brye reflects on her family´s military service and offers a lifetime´s worth of insight, comfort, and wisdom and a bit of humor to fellow military moms who are navigating the unpredictable life that accompanies having a child - or children - in uniform. 1.
