Reply I ve skimmed through this handbook A lot doesn t apply to me because we don t live on post and my husband isn t a general officer However, it gives me a glimpse into what I ll need to do when we are in a situation where we ll deal with higher ranking individuals They love their formailties and I would hate to embarass my husband by doing something completely inappropriate. Reply Way too old fashioned for me This is definitely not the modern military wives handbook Times have changed a bit in my opinion I would definitely recommend just about any other book for military wives than this one. Reply Everything you need to know about protocol, etiquette, etc is in this book It s not meant to sit down and read all the way through even though I did A very good resource book and has a teeny bit of army wife history stuck in there. Reply needs updating forcurrent info but a very good read especially for new army wives gives a lot of information on customs, traditions and just general knowledge.
