“Imagine having to leave everything behind you on short notice, including most of your possessions, your friends and your planet!” – Steven Hobbs (p. 160)
Okay, so our troops aren’t leaving the planet, but it’s sure to feel that way at times. They’re a long way from home – far away from their families and friends. This book is a warm reminder of what’s waiting for them when they return. There are stories to put a smile on their face and photos to give them something familiar to look at while they’re deployed to a world so very different from our own.
When you buy this book you’re sharing our thoughts and prayers for our troops – you are sending the message they are not forgotten back home and that we look forward to their safe return.
And when you buy this book, you are sending a precious gift – proceeds from every book sold is donated to Legacy to support the families of deceased veterans and dependents of members of today’s Australian Defence Force who lose their lives as a result of their military service.
