One of the book's best features is the occasional page to record your own experiences and memories of one of their subjects. After you've filled in the pages you can share the book with your spouse & family, or send it on to another loved one for them to add their own.
I've told our daughter most (*ahem*) of my sea stories, but "1001 Things" is a great way to pass on the rest of your family-friendly memories. It's going on her reading pile, and I'm sure we'll have many other conversations starting with "Hey, Dad, did you ever...?"
Doug Nordman, USN Retired, author of "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement"
The authors' exhaustive research is evident. They have covered so many aspects of life in the armed forces, from the inside out. On every page I find reminders of things to be thankful for in the life I live as a military wife.
Thank you Holly, Kathie, Tara and Star for reminding me why I chose it and why I would do it all over again!
A wonderful read and a great book to give as a gift!
A perfect gift for any military family or anyone you know that supports and loves the military! A huge thank you to the authors and their families for a wonderful and well written book.
