John and Frank Schaeffers ensuing experiences of learning how to be a U.S. Marine (and a Marines parent), and of reevaluating their understandings of the words service and duty, were recounted in Keeping Faith: A Father-Son Story About Love and the United States Marine Corps. Their very personal story struck such a fervent chord amongst the many Americans with a family member in the military, that it inspired personal communications from three American Presidents and propelled the authors onto Oprah, 20/20, and Nightline and their book onto the New York Times extended bestseller list.

Then on February 18, 2003 - the day Gulf War II began - John Schaeffer was deployed to the Middle East. Faith of Our Sons is Frank Schaeffers account of what its like to send your child to war, and the powerful emotions attendant on that experience (from panic to pride to rage and back again). But as we read the homefront story of Frank and Genie Schaeffer, punctuated by the occasional call or e-mailed poem from their son, we also hear the voices of many others in the same situation.
