Homefront Warriors is a revealing account of what it is like for those who stay behind as their soldier goes off to fight. In this memoir, Chantel Olson gives homefront warriors a voice through her own powerful story and shares her many lessons learned while fighting the battle at home during her husband’s deployment in Iraq. As a motivational speaker, she has shared her experiences many homefront warriors and military families, each time validating the importance of giving voice to these courageous, amazing people.
Many of us are familiar with the “ultimate sacrifice” of soldiers giving their lives to protect their country and their families, but there is more sacrifice for freedom than traveling overseas and fighting the enemy. This book is about the warriors who don’t wear a uniform, the ones whose sacrifices are less obvious but still very real. Without the combined efforts of soldiers with and without a uniform, the freedoms we enjoy could not exist.
Whether you are a member of a military family or you are someone who wants to know more about being “married to the uniform,” this books offers insights and wisdom and reminds us of the sacrifice that goes into the freedoms we all enjoy.
