Title:  On My Honor, A Navy Wife’s Vietnam War

Author:  Karen W. Waggoner

Publisher:  Publish America

Reviewer: E. A. Kruger – Education Administrator

As a Navy wife myself, I find you do not hear much about the spouse's side of military life. We are assigned a certain role that the military and our husbands expect us to follow. Sometimes this can be very trying especially when you live in a foreign country without your normal support system.

I found it amazing that many of the living conditions describe in this book to still hold true almost thirty years later. I lived in just the same kind of Japanese house with my very young children until we were able to get base housing almost two years later. I remember leaving that same Japanese home with mixed emotions. I would bet that if we were to be stationed there today it would still be very similar.

I relate to her fear and pain as a wife at home waiting, on pins and needles, for the treacherous news. Where the old adage, “no news is good news,” is not necessarily a comfort but more of a torture. As we are now in rapidly approaching parallel war, I share her fear that the support of our troops will diminish to the point of apathy, which will then breed contempt.

I am glad for her story because of what her family went through, our country has decided, at least for now, to make sure the people laying down their lives for this country's ideals will not go unsupported.
