On Newsstands Now: "When Mom Comes Home From War," In People Magazine

See pages 152-156!
Remember my January mystery trip to Eglin Air Force Base in Florida? Until now, I only could say where I was headed, but not why I embarked on the sojourn. Now, though, the embargo is lifted. So herewith the explanation:

I visited Eglin in pursuit of "When Mom Comes Home From War," for People magazine.

The story is on newsstands now, inside the May 7 issue, with Beyonce Knowles on the cover.

"When Mom Comes Home..." has turned out to be one of my all-time favorite stories that I've worked on for People. You'll have to get the magazine to find out why. I'll say only this much: the mom in the story rocks. Be sure to grab a copy ad see fr yourself; you won't be disappointed.

Ahh, uh, "People", of all publications? My gorge rises when I just think about that rag. Why, Ma'am, why?

Oh, OK, I think I see what you are doing, trying to get through to Those People (as Lee would say).

I love this magazine. Look at the human interest and military stories; they are compelling and sensitively done. Seriously. No hit jobs; just well-told stories.

Susan, I cried when I read the story about Major Skeete. I never thought about the moms who go to war, too. I have children and I would have a terrible time if I had to leave them. I wanted to hug the mom. She gave up family time so she could help our soldiers. God bless her.
