More About the Author

A practical writer with the ability to break big concepts into relatable pieces, Mary Corbett's work has been featured on The Today Show, Fox News Channel, local television affiliates, and nationally-syndicated radio programs.
Mary's first book, The List: 7 Ways to Tell if He's Going to Marry You in 30 Days or Less was published in 2005. She still receives emails (and wedding/baby pictures) from women who read The List and met Mr. Right.

Her second book, National Guard 101: A Handbook for Spouses was released in November 2011. Right in time to celebrate the National Guard's 375th birthday (December 13th). Mary lives in Alpharetta, Georgia with her husband, Jon, and their two children.

I have been "married to the military" for 17 years. My husband is a traditional "M Day" Guardsman and in addition to his regular drill weekends and AT, he spent 10 months in Iraq. This book covers all the basic information a Guard spouse needs to know. The author breaks down military complexities and presents material in a straightforward and fun way. I wish I would have had this before and during my husband's deployment. The deployment chapter presents the perfect plan for Guard families. The author understands that although there are resources available, Guard families often go it alone.

I am about half way through and I am really glad I got this book. Being a new military girlfriend I needed to study up on how things work. This book is well written and is full of helpful and useful information. I definitely suggest it to those that are new to the military/national guard life and want to understand a little more how it all works.

Format: Paperback
I'm not a National Guard wife but I most certainly represent thousands of Army wives on Army Wife Network. My business partner and AWN cofounder, Starlett Henderson, is a National Guard wife. I learned very quickly in building a business with her that there was much for me to learn about the National Guard life. You wouldn't think that there was a difference between Active Duty and Guard but coming from this AD wife - there is - and frankly, the Guard has it a lot harder in my opinion. Not only did I learn more about the National Guard and the resources that support them from Mary's book, I also gained a new found respect and perspective. This book is a MUST HAVE for EVERY National Guard/Reserve family. Mary did a fabulous job of addressing everything from the history, rank, to the social and family programs. HOOAH!

As a National Guard spouse, I must say that it is about time we get a book for us! It can be very frustrating within the community to find resources and support that gears towards what we go through. This book is not only filled with information and resources helpful to those spouses new to this life, but also life experiences that Mary shares with us. As a professional writer, I recommend this book to all National Guard spouses and soldiers. A must read!
