Spouse Calls: Messages From a Military Life

Elva Resa Publishing

Spouse Calls: Messages From a Military Life is a collection of the best military life columns by respected journalist Terri Barnes, based on her popular weekly Spouse Calls column in Stars and Stripes.

From her own kitchen table to Capitol Hill, Terri takes readers beyond the headlines and homecoming videos for an inside look at the day-to-day hardships, victories, and many ways military life shapes, challenges, and enriches its families.

Terri reports and reflects on a wide range of topics, including motherhood, faith, friendship, family ties, war, current events, sacrifice, and PTSD. As a wife and mom, Terri highlights important, pivotal moments in her own family’s life as well as others’, in essays that will resonate with both military and nonmilitary families.

Through poignant personal stories, incisive interviews, and emotive reflections, Terri creates an historical snapshot of American and world affairs, preserving an important piece of our nation’s culture.

About her book, Terri says, “My hometown isn’t a geographical location, but a place in American culture that is invisible to many people. My family lives in the hometown of military installations and military communities. This book is the story of the people we know and the life we live in the neighborhood of our American military life.”
