Linda Franklin created Shining Service Worldwide™ in November 2010. She says, “it was destiny” The whole idea started to germinate when women serving in Afghanistan emailed her saying that they read Linda’s The Real Cougar Woman blog every day and how powerful they felt when they did. Shining Service Worldwide’s mission is to show appreciation and support to women currently serving in the military, military vets and military spouses. Too often our females in service fall through the cracks and don’t get the attention they deserve, or more importantly, they need.
Linda is visiting Military Mom Talk Radio this week to share new initiatives on the horizon for Shining Service Worldwide, specifically for transitioning women veterans.
