When you enlist in the United States military, you don’t
just sign up for duty; you also commit your loved ones to
lives of service all their own.
No one knows this
better than Elaine Brye, an “Army brat” turned military wife
and the mother of four officers—one each in the Army, Navy,
Air Force, and Marine Corps. For more than a decade she’s
endured countless teary goodbyes, empty chairs at
Thanksgiving dinners, and sleepless hours waiting for phone
calls in the night. She’s navigated the complicated tangle
of emotions—pride, worry, fear, hope, and deep, enduring
love—that are part and parcel of life as a military
In Be Safe, Love Mom Elaine braids
together her own personal experiences with those of fellow
parents she’s met along the way. She offers gentle guidance
and hard-earned wisdom on topics ranging from that first
anxious goodbye to surrendering all control of your child,
from finding comfort in the support of the military
community and the healing power of faith to coping with the
enormous sacrifices life as a military mother requires.
Readers looking for encouragement and hard-to-come-by
information as they travel the challenging road of having a
child in uniform will find Elaine a wise and trusted friend,
and Be Safe, Love Mom an essential handbook to
membership in a strong and special sisterhood.
