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.

Loved it!

I wish I had listened to this book prior to my son leaving to the Army. I could relate in many levels and I cried many times listening to this book. It helped me embrace the suck. It would be nice if all military branches gave this book to all moms.

Monotone reader

It was very difficult to get through this book because I felt like I was listening to a robot reading it. There was no voice inflection to even remotely get across the feelings of the writer. It is a shame because I feel like the reader robbed the writer

A must for military moms!

This book answers a lot of questions about the roller coaster of moms whose children join the military. It is a whole new world without a manual on what all the acronyms mean or why scheduled are so tentative. Great read, but requires tissues!

For all military moms to be.

This was very good. Always looking for military based books, very hard to find, even in a bookstore or library.
