1001 Things To Love About Military Life - @1001LoveMilLife Book Review

I am a very proud wife to my husband...
Not just because he is a wonderful husband, daddy and friend...
But also because of his love for his country.

As we all know, Marc is in the Army National Guard.
No, we do not live on a base or anything...
But yes, he still does weekend drill... He still gets deployed.  He still trains... He is still a proud member of our military.
It is funny, they acronyms and sayings and what not... I do not know it all.
Nor do I plan to, but I try and educate myself when I need to.

I saw that there was a book, 1001 Things To Love About Military Life and I knew it was something I wanted to read.  Luckily for me, I was able to get it for review...
I tried to read it at home while Marc was gone, but I honestly wanted him there...
Well, yes, I always want him here.. but I wanted him here to see what things related to him...

I really enjoyed this book.  I also think that this is a great book for anyone that takes pride in their country.
Somethings will make no sense at all to a civilian, as I was thinking "HUH?!" several times.. but, it does give an "inside" look into why people sign up for this...

The book (obviously) gives us 1001 things to love..
I don't necessarily think it is "things to LOVE" but more along the lines of "things about the military."

Example:  Ammo Boxes.
Yes, it is good to have, but is that a reason to love?
Example:  Pride of Service.
Yes, that is for sure a reason to love!

This book has more than just 1001 reasons...
There is a section in there to help you make the best care packages...
But, not the way you think...
Yes, you will make a care package with all sores to things... but, with this, it has little sayings to go along and put a smile on that someones face... Such as: Add a tootsie roll... "To remind you of the important "role" you play.  I just loved this page... and for sure, if Marc ever gets deployed again, I will be sending idea's like this for him!

They also include an area of places where you can send Thank You Cards to be sent to service members!  I thought that was a great idea and most were places I never knew of...

This book also gives you several websites to help you transition to Military Life...
From being an army wife,  to sending a cake to them while they are deployed, not to mention ways for you (or  your children) to handle deployment...   I really wish that I would have been aware of several of these sites when he was deployed, but I just figure this gives me time to do research on all of these places before he is called up again...

Now that I am a bit more familiar with all of this, I have learned of "Flat Rate Boxes" that are mentioned in here... as well as the Strong Bonds Retreat, that I learned of once he returned...
Each page offers insight into the ways of being a military member... as well as being the support behind them!
From websites, to "famous" military members, movies to acronyms.. This book is a must for all!

I personally think that this would be a great book to give someone that is thinking of joining...
Not to mention give to a soon to be spouse...
It is also great for Veterans and Active Duty as well!
I admit, when I read about the Vets that wear their ball caps with the ships name on it, long after they have ever stepped foot on one, I pictured my Uncles wearing their hats at Thanksgiving.  You see, that pride of duty, honor and country never really leaves you...

If you want to learn more about the military and how you can support it...
Please, pick up a copy of this book, 1001 Things To Love About Military Life today!
