According to the book description of Surviving Military Separation: 365 days, “Family members know that today, military separation is common and that long deployments are the norm. Coping with everyday problems and hardships by themselves is very difficult, and often leads to loneliness and depression. In his day-to-day counseling of military family members, Marc CB Maxwell, a Department of Defense Guidance Counselor and former Army Airborne Ranger, discovered that many members of his military community were unprepared for these separations. Surviving Military Separation: A 365-Day Activity Guide for the Families of Deployed Personnel is the helping hand they need to get through their family member’s deployment.

 

Marc’s daily counseling quickly made it clear that his members required something fun, easy to understand, and enjoyable to pass the time. Surviving Military Separation is the first book on the market to provide everyday steps and activities to help guide family members through these particularly trying separations.

 

Lavishly illustrated with more than 140 pieces of original art by Val Laolagi, Surviving Military Separation is an activity guidebook created especially for family members of deployed personnel. This unique presentation offers 365 days of activities for the entire family. The book’s setup allows readers to break down the lengthy deployment into weeklong chunks, which passes the deployment much more quickly by taking it one fun and creative step at a time.

 

Surviving Military Separation also includes: A section for journal entries for readers to record their thoughts and feelings for a deployed loved one to read at a later time; a calendar section to help family members remember important dates; stationery to write their deployed personnel; and a world map to assist family members in locating their deployed loved one. Coming on the heels of the military’s recent announcement of longer deployments, Surviving Military Separation is both timely and long overdue. Every family experiencing a military separation will find this book indispensable.

 

One reader of Surviving Military Separation: 365 days said, “I have been following this book since my spouse deployed 2 months ago. There are many amazing activities that I would not have thought of. For example, on Day 28 - List All the Positives In Your Life. With the stress and feelings of being overwhelmed that can come with a deployment, it's easy to focus on negative things. Doing this activity helped me change my focus, and it's something I try to do everyday now. I especially like how this book is organized into 1-week segments with a place to journal some of my thoughts at the end of each week. As I move forward in this book, I look forward to new ideas and I'm reminded of the progress I've made so far. This book is a great resource for anyone going through a military separation; moms, dads, kids, spouses, friends or significant others. It doesn't matter what branch you're affiliated with or the length of separation.”

 

One reader of Surviving Military Separation: 365 days said, “I am a teacher for the DOD on an overseas military installation and I see on a daily basis the impact a deployed parent can have on a family. There are many challenges that spouses and children of deployed parents face which are unique to their situation - and the author of this book, Marc Maxwell, as a former Army Ranger and current education counselor for the Army, has created an exceptional guide to help military families navigate that difficult period of time known as "deployment." I have seen families in my school use this book very successfully - and I highly recommend it for any family impacted by a military deployment.”
