Within this book two military veterans share their own transitions from military service members to veterans. They provide insights they term lessons learned, which helped them as they made this sometimes emotional and traumatic, very personal journey. This book was written to assist transitioning military and nonveterans alike, to provide support and guidance that enabled each writer to succeed in his after-military service goals. Often too many veterans feel they are alone, left behind, and lost, and experience emotional trauma. This book proves that this is not so. Here, two fellow veterans are determined that no veteran gets left behind! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Jaramillo.

I remember when I hit rock bottom. There I was with no makeup on, hadn’t showered, eating raw cookie dough out of the tube, hitting on the toothless bagger at the commissary, and ordering jewelry off the TV. And that was just my first day!Confessions of a Military Wife is an honest, witty, and often hilarious look at the life of the new-generation military wife. Mollie Gross learned the hard way to laugh instead of cry at what she could not control as a military spouse - and as she quickly discovered, nearly everything was out of her control!A stand-up comedienne, public speaker, and wife of a Marine Corps officer, Mollie explores everything about the ´´issued” spouse, from deployment and the stress of having a husband in a combat zone to the realization that marriage changes when your husband returns home from war.
