The article focuses on the "Read To Your Kids" program which provides an opportunity for U.S. deployed service members to be viodeotaped while reading children's books to their children. The program was developed by Army Reserve Keith Johnson as a way to bring deployed soldiers closer to their loved ones at homes. In March 2005, the program's 200th reader was Tania Steele from the Office of Military Cooperation's Staff Judge Advocate Office, who read the books "The Fairy and the Missing Wand" and "The Way Mothers Are" to her two daughters.
