Hero Mom features the jobs women do as today’s American soldiers. From erecting buildings, to using dogs to search for dangers, to piloting helicopters, to driving trucks, and more. While meant for children of American female soldiers, all children will benefit by learning the kinds of jobs women do in the service. The book emphasizes that love endures even though mothers are far away.
