Junction City Author Releases Sequel
By Lauren Karp The Daily Union Newspaper

Junction City resident Viranda Slappy published the sequel to "Till Death Do Us Part: A Marriage Survives the Stress of Military Life" in February.

"Vision of Change" delves into the challenges of a military marriage.

In "Vision of Change," Slappy used a combination of research, her own experiences and the experiences of others who contacted her after she wrote her first book.

"The book focuses on a military spouse," Slappy said. "It deals with a married couple who returns to the states from Berlin."

The two main characters in the non-fiction story are Virginia and Carlos. A married couple, Virginia spends her time at home with the family while Carlos continues his military career. Virginia and Carlos accummulate marital problems while they are in Berlin. The book addresses how Carlos then must deal with his parents' concern for their marriage when they return to the United States
.

Slappy conveys her intended message in her "Author's Notes" section at the end of her book. Slappy said a lot of spouses don't know that other spouses are struggling with similar challenges. Slappy hopes her book helps spouses feel like they can reach out to each other for help, advice or support.

Virginia and Carlos stumble on various obstacles to preserving their military marriage. Slappy addresses their struggles with raising teenagers. Carlos struggles with a substance abuse problem. With the help of his family he recovers and that experience makes their family stronger.

Slappy said that a lot of military families feel that they need to appear to be perfect families. But that is not realistic.

"No person is perfect," Slappy said. "If no person is perfect then no marriage can be perfect."

Slappy says military marriages must be strong to live through imperfections such as infidelity, lack of parenting when a parent is in active duty and financial problems.

Slappy moved to Junction City 12 years ago when her husband was stationed at Fort Riley. She is now a retired military spouse and has been married for 29 years. She has two children and one grandchild. Slappy is a former host and producer of the "Express Yourself" radio talk show on WSDE AM 1190 radio station out of Cobleskill, New York and reporter for Uplifter Newsletter.
