Editorial Reviews

Review

As a proud Army brat whose father served two tours in Vietnam she (Ferguson-Cohen) knew what it was like to worry about a parent fighting in a far-off land. –Colorado Springs Gazette

Recommended to help discuss war with children. –American Press Institute

Reading the stories can help adults speak with children about deployment and the war itself and give children a sense of pride about their parent’s service. –Knight-Ridder, Chicago Tribune

 

About the Author

“Sometimes in the throes of politics, policies and opinions about war, people forget about the children,” says Ferguson-Cohen. “This book is a tribute to these families who can’t forget. This much-ignored community, who need and deserve our compassion and support.”

Ferguson-Cohen, who has had a long career in the music industry, is the daughter of a retired Army General who served two tours in Vietnam, as well as the granddaughter of a soldier killed in action during WWII.
