Newly released from Elva Resa Publishing, Stories Around the Table: Laughter, Wisdom, and Strength in Military Life, is a delightful collection of stories and essays from more than forty military family writers.

Elva Resa shares, “From poignant to practical, tragic to humorous, these candid conversations from friends old and new shed heartfelt insight on many aspects of military life. Some subjects, such as deployment, reunion, combat injury, post-traumatic stress, and frequent moves, specifically reflect the military lifestyle. Writers also explore topics common to both military and civilian families, including marriage, education, parenting, friendship, faith, finances, depression, infertility, and grief, and how military life influences the experience.”
