My Air Force Mom is a soft cover picture book by Mary Lee that helps young children get a glimpse of military life. The story is told through the eyes of eight-year-old Susie, whose mom is in the Air Force. Through Susie we learn about Air Force uniforms, the commissary, ID cards and other military customs, like saluting.
We also see that the military offers careers for women. My Air Force Mom is an easy way to introduce this branch of the military to children of civilians and those whose parents are serving our country.
