Daddy Keeps Us Free
by Scott Mann,Nick Pannell
Military deployments are often filled with anxiety, long separation, and fear of the unknown. No one knows this more than the military family. And perhaps no one feels this more than the military child. Military children often struggle to understand why their parent must deploy and remain absent from their life for long periods of time. Parents and caretakers also struggle to explain this separation to young children. Daddy Keeps Us Free was written to help families cope with the challenges of deployment separation. This book was written by a career Special Operations officer and inspired by his wife’s ability to promote a sense of duty and pride in all three of their small children during numerous combat deployments. This book provides a helpful tool to all military parents and family members working to help children better cope and deal with the rigors of military life.
