Military Success Network’s first guest blogger, Phyllis Zimbler Miller,  former army wife, blogger and award-winning book author, has a special offer to help readers explore the military spouse experience in her book, “Mrs Lieutenant.”

On August 20 and 21, 2012 only, MilSuccessNet readers and Zimbler Miller’s fans can download the Kindle version free. See the link at the end of this post.

“The novel, “Mrs. Lieutenant”,  is based on my experiences as a new Mrs. Lieutenant in 1970 during the Vietnam War. Although I wrote the story as a novel to protect the innocent, the characters in the story are an amalgamation of real people,” says Zimbler Miller in a post on MilSuccessNet’s Facebook page .

“The prejudices the book’s characters deal with in 1970 are still with us today,” she notes.

Read her original post on transition from military to civilian life and the core value of military service that may hinder successful transition.

Phyllis Zimbler Miller’s post is the first of many upcoming in which information, resources and 1st person experiences of the transition and re-integration process is shared to help military personnel, their families, and veterans.

      You are welcome. I understand the feeling of being compelled to write a story and to share.
      I feel the same about MilSuccesNet and I know co-founders Nate Brookshire and Marius Tecoanta feel the same about the power of a story to help not only the writer, but to support, inform and sometimes heal others.
