Author Announces the Launch of her Newest Military Lifestyle Book

Online PR News – 04-September-2014 – Dayton/OH – Are you still looking for one more gripping summer read? Summer might be winding down, but it’s never too late to pick up one more good book! Independent Author A. Piper Burgi announces the launch of her newest military lifestyle book Beyond Afghanistan: More Views of a Military Spouse. Readers will appreciate that as an Air Force Veteran, former Air Force contractor and a military spouse she is familiar with all sides of the spectrum; defending her country and supporting her man in uniform.

Re-integration: The process of coming together as a family again after a deployment or an unaccompanied assignment. When a spouse or life partner returns from a wartime deployment, it's a time of great joy. It is also a time of doubts, trials and changes. Re-integration is not always an easy process, nor is it something that happens over night; it really is quite an undertaking, not a single event that ends when the military member safely returns home. Successful re-integration requires effort and time, as well as an understanding that everyone involved has changed during the separation. In My Afghanistan Campaign Diary: Views of a Military Spouse you accompanied the author, her Air Force pilot husband and their two furry children through the ups and downs of wartime deployment. Now that it's all in the past, have you ever asked yourself what happens after a military member returns from a prolonged deployment?! And what happens when you rather suddenly have to pack up and move on to a new assignment?

Let the diary continue! This is the family's enduring story and they are off on their newest adventure...relocating from the final frontier called Alaska to the Air Force's center of geekiness, also known as AFIT (Air Force Institute of Technology). Military Moves…Ugh! Just the thought of moving again and again makes many of us shake our heads; moving every three to four years at the mere drop of a hat can take on nightmarish proportions. Giving up close friends and a familiar way of life, they propel themselves toward the unknown and an uncertain future in new locations. Join them again on another long-winded journey, laced with plenty of bureaucracy, drama and some unavoidable heartache!

A. Piper Burgi has had some of her work featured in the popular German women’s magazine “Mach Mal Pause” (loosely translated it means “Take a Break”).
