Yesterday I had the pleasure of sitting with Allison and her husband Rusty at the North PX on Fort Bragg. At her very FIRST book signing, it was totally awesome! They are a great couple really cute together! Let me tell you something about Allison Mewes, she is the proud wife of an Army soldier. Her experiences as a newlywed entering the Army lifestyle, along with the humorous things that happened along the way, inspired her to help other military spouses and significant others make the transition into Army life. She owns Blue Bamboo Project Services and works as a project manager/event coordinator. Allison and her husband live in Boise, Idaho and devote their time to training their new puppy, exploring Idaho's beautiful outdoors and preparing for a baby on the way.
So I had the pleasure of writing the foreword to the book and it was really nice to read this book, I wish I had something like this 12 years ago to help me understand all this information, or where to go or what to do! I found these things out on my own over the first few years of our marriage. Intro to Army Life contains everything a person needs to know to navigate through the first years as an Army spouse or significant other.
