Married quarter: Boots, berets and bloody uniforms
Serving the nation in uniform is a career choice. But have you ever wondered about the life of a partner of these brave men and women? Married Quarter: Boots, Berets and Bloody Uniforms is a light-hearted glimpse into the world of the service family, through deployments, postings, illnesses and into retirement.
21 years, 9 postings, 2 deployments, 15 jobs, 1 brain tumour.
You will laugh and cry as Maria Augustus-Dunn tells you her story: from the perils of dining-in nights to meeting the King of Cambodia; from her disastrous attempt at making a cheesecake to seeing her husband off for a 12-month deployment; from arriving in Townsville in the middle of a cyclone to breaking down on the side of a mountain in Tasmania with a caravan in tow. Married Quarter takes you on a 21-year journey of the highs and lows of life as the spouse of a serving soldier. This book is dedicated to the thousands of unsung heroes - the military spouses of Australia. A portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to Legacy.
