The American public was shocked in 1993 when the Commandant of the US Marine Corps announced that he was going to ban enlisted soldiers from marrying. Yet this idea symbolizes the dramatic changes that US armed forces have undergone in the post-WW II period. Most American soldiers, sailors, and airmen--male and female--are married; many have young families whose priorities might conflict with those of the services. This collection of essays will be especially valuable for servicemen and their families concerned with the conflict between career and family. Chapters cover a wide range of themes, from "Long-term Effects on Children of a Parent Missing in Wartime," and "Psychosexual Scars of Recent Wars," to "Family Service Centers," "The Military Family and Health Care System," and "Weathering the Storm at Home: War-Related Family Stress and Coping." This reviewer's favorite essay is entitled "Mothers in Uniform," an area now of interest to the general public. General; community college, and undergraduate readers. D.
