Darlene F. Wetterstrom is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) with extensive experience working with children and families in a variety of settings, including the military. Darlene is a member of Woodbury United Methodist Church in Woodbury, Minnesota, where her husband serves as senior pastor.
David A. Thompson is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a retired Navy Chaplain who assists deploying and returning soldiers and their families. He and his family have experienced several deployments with both the Navy and Marine Corps and know the challenges of coming home after war. David is an ordained minister with the Free Methodist Church of North America and, while active duty, was endorsed by the Free Methodist Church and The United Methodist Church.
This much-needed book helps civilians understand the unique challenges for combat soldiers and their families. Chapter 6 was the most fascinating to me, which dealt with moral and spiritual issues facing soldiers and their loved ones. "Some veterans, in anguish over what they have done in war, need to experience forgiveness and grace," it reads at the beginning of the chapter. "Beyond The Yellow Ribbon" is particularly helpful for churches who would like to improve their ministry to veterans, a segment of the population (both within the congregation and outside the church doors) that is often overlooked. Well done and thank you David Thompson and Darlene Wetterstrom.
