Children gathered at the Bridgeport Public Library for a special mission Saturday.
It was their mission to get "Buddy's Special Mission" signed by local author Colleen Driscoll.
Driscoll is the author of many children's books, including her series "Piper the Elf."
"Buddy's Special Mission" teaches children how to deal with the departure of a military family member.
"So the book talks about the years of the father's deployment over seas and how he takes care of the family and how he does normal every day activities or little activities that the family plans to make the time pass a little easier," Driscoll said.
The book is available on Amazon for $10.
