In 2003, reservist Chaplain (Major) Hopkins was pulled away from her husband and children in El Paso, Texas, to serve a yearlong unaccompanied tour overseas. Forty-eight hours later, Chaplain Hopkins was in a U. S. Army hospital in Germany, the halfway point for injured soldiers on their way home from Iraq. Halfway Home is the heartfelt account of her service in Operation Iraqi Freedom. In these stories of commitment, hope and service, Chaplain Hopkins brings us with her to the bedsides of America's wounded and hurting heroes. She weaves powerful, tragic narratives with anecdotes of her own triumphant change and ultimate healing.
