Read full description of the books:
In these stories, 45 mothers of U.S. service men and women open their hearts and share what it feels like when your son or daughter leaves home to fight a war. They discovered the strange mix of pride and fear. The anxiety of not knowing exactly where your son is in the world, whether your daughter is facing fire or heat and boredom. Elation at the arrival of the briefest message. The daily dread, when returning home, of seeing a government car in the driveway . . . Any parent who reads these stories will feel their power--and will gain a greater understanding of the sacrifice made by parents as well as their children in our military.
Here are pictures of 11 of the 45 troops and their moms from our book, Love You More Than You Know, in an Animoto video. May God bless our troops and bring them safely home.
