One of the biggest challenges faced by military dads is seesawing back and forth between serving your country (which often means deployment and lots of time away from family) and wanting to play a major role in your children’s life. In our FAQs, articles, and podcasts, there’s a wealth of information specifically for military families. And in my book, The Military Father: A Hands-on Guide for Deployed Dads, you’ll find practical, easy-to-implement strategies to help you stay connected with your family before, during, and after deployment. As a Marine Corps veteran, I thank you for your service.
