- Floyd Richardson

“Marc Maxwell has nailed it. The military community needs a book like this. Every family member of a deployed Service Member deserves to have their own copy”.

- Csaba L. Kofalvi

“Very Creative. Why it has taken so long for this type of book to be published is beyond me. It is a much needed book for the military community”.

- Dean Strosahl,
Veteran of Desert Shield/Storm

“Marc Maxwell has created a user friendly tool that will help family members cope with the deployment of their loved ones”.

This will prove to be a invaluable tool for those left to mainatin the homefront. This book is not just for families of military service members, but also for relatives of Department of Defense and other contractors supporting our troops downrange".

"Separations are a reality for military families and Surviving Military Separation takes a proactive approach in helping those on the homefront tackle the inevitable challenges of loneliness by providing positive, creative, and fun things to do 365 days/year. This book would be especially helpful to a brand new military spouse dealing with her/his first deployment."
