Jacqueline Arnold gives a passionate account of her personal experience as a former military spouse in her new book, The Military Family: A Casualty of War. With the impact of numerous military deployments Jacqueline and her family suffered many devastating blows, eventually leading to divorce.
Jacqueline was married to a U.S. Army aviator for 23 years; during that time she and her family experienced numerous separations and deployments, wars and homecomings and multiple moves, including a disastrous move where household goods were damaged by mold and mildew with little retribution.
If you are a military family or have a son, daughter, friend or neighbor in the military you will want to read this transparent account of how war rages on the battlefield and also on the home front, and how multiple wars and deployments lead to fractured families. You will have a keen awareness of the cost of military service and be compelled to jump in and take a stand for military families.
“Military life is rich and full of benefits and travel, but not without sacrifice,” she said. I’m here to shed light on the sacrifices made by the entire military family and to create awareness for every American citizen, hoping to foster a spirit of understanding and compassion to the families left behind during deployments. Military family’s lives are forever on hold and their hearts forever seared. By sharing my story, each citizen might find their role and be inspired to reach out and support the military families left behind waiting and parenting alone, in isolation and often desperation.”
Other books written by the author include the God-inspired series, Eat, Love, Praise Him! based on her own personal journey of faith and life experiences.
