Military Marriages and Family Support Book

Schindler’s book, Operation Military Family: How to Strengthen Your Military Marriage and Save Your Family provides a guide that puts resources at your finger tips. It is an insightful book listing services and support that are available to all branches of the military.

More than a handbook, Operation Military Family: How to Strengthen Your Military Marriage and Save Your Family presents the emotional and physical struggles of several military couples as they prepare for deployment, are separated by deployment, and the reunification process of the couples and families upon return.

The hundreds of hours Schindler spent interviewing couples and the transcript of those interactions are incredibly revealing of the stress war and deployment brings to families. Add to that stress the day to day grind of living in austere deployment conditions, separation from your loved ones, and a generally feeling of disconnect and it is no wonder that many military couples struggle.

Schindler’s work presents vignettes of the raw emotions and the internal struggles each marriage dealt with through the process as these couples strengthened their marriages despite the odds. The list of marriage and family support information and resources within the book are invaluable. 

How does a military family stay strong and continue to grow in this time of frequent and ever lengthening deployment cycles?
