Jill Biden's Children's Book on Son's Deployment

Pol Light Moment #13 is Dr. Jill Biden writing a children's book on her son's deployment in the military. Dr. Jill Biden is the wife of the Vice-President of the United States, Joe Biden. Joe Biden was featured on the Pol Light Moment #11 post of this blog.

In June, 2012 Dr. Jill Biden released a children's book called Don't Forget God Bless Our Troops. The title came from a statement made by her granddaughter Natalie Biden. Susan Page writes that Dr. Jill Biden "has produced a deliberately nonpolitical book, a low-key account of Natalie's first year while her father, a major in the Army National Guard and Delaware's attorney general, was in Iraq (Source)."  One of the goals of the book is to help other families and children of military personnel understand that they are not alone in facing the difficulty of having a loved one in the armed service.

Here is an interview on the book that Jill Biden provided to USA Today.
