Military brats' childhoods are often scarred by alcoholism, abuse, and an ever-present threat of a parent's loss to war. This eye-opening, sometimes shocking exploration tells what life is really like for the stepchildren of Uncle Sam. A new recovery group, Adult Children of Military Personnel, Inc., has been formed as a direct result of this book's publication.I also had a head full of freelance ideas and a book I wanted to write.

Then I hit the road, headed north under clear blue autumn skies, a stack of maps beside me and no particular destination in mind.
