5.0 out of 5 stars Sgt. O'Graced, June 3, 2012

This Taurus Judge, Public Defender (JPD) Holster is made of single stitched black leather. It's formed to fit the JPD like a glove. Although it's a little tight right now, it will slide in and out smoothly in the future with repetitive practice. I've thoroughly messaged saddle soap into the holster prior to parking the JPD in it. I would recommend a good 2" wide leather belt on which to hang the holster. A smaller belt will cause too much unnecessary movement of the holster when drawing the JPD. Overall, I've been satisfied with the holster.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Book I've Read in Years., June 18, 2011

This review is from: We Band of Sisters (Paperback)
We Band of Sisters, by Gwen C. Rollings: Gwen wrote this book for the benefit of young women who are considering marriage to men in the military. It focuses on the practical problems that active military wives must face and resolve, sometimes on their own. The book sheds light (i.e. The nature of military service life) on what may otherwise be a blind relationship. She does this by telling her own story as a Marine's wife.

It doesn't matter whether you're enlisted or commissioned, Gwen's story is applicable to both. Her story spans about 28 years of the 32 year career of her husband, Wayne Rollings who advances (in the book) from Cpl. to MajGeneral of the II & III Marine Amphibious Forces.

As you travel with her family, through the years, from duty station to duty station, you'll experience her fears, frustrations, joys, love, and hopes along the way. You'll feel her emotions in relation to her, sometimes, over-looked needs and those of their children's, and for Wayne's expectations, and his assignments. You can feel these emotions in her writing. This lady holds no punches.

As she tells her life story, she also shares her remedies for the various obstacles she encounterd. She has artfully sprinkled humor through-out the book in the appropriate places.

She explains how she effectively used the power of prayer to overcome or resolve problems. She has a strong faith in God and loves Christ. She implies how He has answered her prayers for help in various ways and at various times.

When asked about the book, MajGen Rollings said Gren always kept the home fires burning. He said it's especially important for young military wives to understand that a pre-occupied military man in combat is unsafe and may lose his life or may cause the loss of lives of others.

We Band of Sisters will show you how Gwen kept their home fires burning through the good and the bad times.
