Sintesi dell'editore

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.

Siri reading a story?

I am highly disappointed in this audible narrative. As a new military mom, this book came highly recommended by other military mothers. When I seen Audible had it I was delighted as I could listen to it on my commutes. Unfortunately I couldn't get through 10 minutes of this because the narrator was awful! She sounds utterly robotic and it literally sounds like Siri on my cell phone reading me a book. I am out the money on this book as I will have to order it on Kindle or conventional book to truly enjoy it.

Great book - less than pleasant narrator

Reader's voice was too robotic sounding - didn't get through the first chapter - ended up buying the hard copy and reading it myself.

This book held my hand

I’m so grateful a MoM recommended to me, it helped so much during the time my son was at bootcamp, we have to deal with some kids who accidentally passed away or killed themselves because the couldn’t take it, my heart was shrinking but this book as I said, held my hand, he will be deployed overseas very soon, but this words will keep me going. All my letters end with: be safe, love MoM
