For author Virginia Kiernan, February 2003 is a month, though more than ten years past, that remains vivid in her memory. It was the month her husband, Verner Kiernan, a father of six, was deployed with the 101st Airborne Division in Fort Campbell, Kentucky, only one month before the war with Iraq began. In Dear God, Please Keep Daddy Safe, Virginia narrates the trials and triumphs of a year of deployment. She discusses the struggles army families face as she provides insight into the unknown world of army life in one of the nation's top units-including a deadly grenade attack on her husband's unit, the emotion of attending heart-wrenching memorial services, and the family crisis that becomes compounded with separation. A compelling true story written by a mom raising six children while her husband was deployed during the early days of Operation Iraqi Freedom, Dear God, Please Keep Daddy Safe chronicles the highs and lows of events both overseas and on the home front, showing that the often overlooked issues at home can sometimes be as stressful as serving in uniform.
