  • What People Are Saying About Military Mom Talk Radio

    "Buck Stienke and I were honored to be on Military Moms Talk Radio show last week. Wow! What a dedicated bunch of wonderful (and witty) ladies. We're proud to be a part of and associated with a group like Military Moms in support of and dedicated to our armed forces, both past and present. Oorah!" - Ken Farmer and Buck Stienke Co-Authors of the Black Eagle Force series. "Appearing on Military Mom Talk Radio was a fantastic experience. Sandra and her team were wonderful to work with. Programs such as this one are so important because they cut through the hype and sensationalism and offer real military families a chance to address the general public about the realities of military life. All too often, the media focus is on the hardships of military life, so it's refreshing to have an outlet like Military Mom Talk Radio where guests can share not only the challenges of military life, but also the rewards. Less than one percent of our citizens serve in the Armed Forces. Understandably, there's a huge military/civilian divide. With our country involved in two wars, we can all benefit from more programming featuring the stories of real military families." - Andi Hurley
  • Carolyn Blashek of Operation Gratitude

    Military families are our nation's treasure. Yet, spread around the world, they are not always aware of the great support they have here at home. One of the best ways Military families can learn about organizations such as Operation Gratitude is through radio shows like Military Mom Talk Radio that are available on Itunes and the Internet. Military Mom Radio is a great resource that can be downloaded anywhere and anytime, enabling our military to know they are appreciated and providing the civilian community opportunities to get involved in great causes.

Participants learn valuable leadership and teamwork skills, make new friends, and develop a lifelong love of horses!   Many of the facilities are equine rescues and others offer free programs to all veterans and their families!

Sydney Knott, Founder/President/Executive Director of Horses4Heroes, Inc. is a Santa Barbara-native.  She grew up on a steady diet of John Wayne movies, “Gunsmoke,” “Bonanza,” and her favorite books were by Marguerite Henry.  Although horses weren’t part of her life, they were her passion since she was a little girl.  A public relations professional for the past 30 years, Syd won her industry’s highest honor, The Silver Anvil, for a public relations campaign promoting the Resolution Trust Corporation.  In 1999, she fulfilled a lifelong dream to finally own a horse.  Her first horse, like her favorite book, was named Misty!  It was, however, her father’s diagnosis of terminal lung cancer, that became the catalyst for the creation of Horses4Heroes, a national non-profit dedicated to providing affordable horseback riding programs to the heroes and their families in our communities.

Veterans Moving Forward is committed to transforming the lives of physically and mentally challenged veterans, helping them assimilate into society and lead productive and fulfilling lives.  Veterans Moving Forward has a unique plan to serve this deserving community – to provide “service” dogs to those who have served our country and who are now in need.

Over 750,000 veterans either currently need or could benefit dramatically from having an assistance/service dog to mitigate his/her disability, and this number will grow.   Additionally, strong evidence points to a significant reduction in therapy time, effort and money when dogs are introduced into therapy during recovery and rehabilitation.

Training an assistance/service dog starting today means the dog will be ready for assignment in about two years.  Veterans Moving Forward trains dogs to the highest possible level (to serve as either a service, facility, therapy or comfort dog) and then assigns it to a veteran based on the dog’s aptitude and training and on and the veteran’s degree of need at the time of placement or engagement.

Veterans who have partnered successfully with a service dog and recover to greater functionality will be offered an opportunity to work for VMF to serve other veterans in need.

Karen D. Jeffries, president and co-founder of the non-profit Veterans Moving Forward, Inc., is also a management consultant with more than 25 years experience working directly for senior leaders of the federal government and chief executives of commercial corporations in the Washington, DC area. Ms. Jeffries is a retired naval officer and owner of Jeffries Communications Group LLC, a Service-Disabled, Veteran-Owned, Small Business (SDVOSB) specializing in marketing, business development and communications

General Sarge “Comforting Military Families One Furry Friend At A Time”

He is currently deployed to Afghanistan.

At the age of 10 they gave Benjamin a Christmas Gift Certificate for Build-A-Bear Workshop. For as long as they can remember Ben has always wanted to join the Army. So, it really came as no surprise that he named his bear Sarge and dressed him in an Army uniform. On his 18th birthday in August 2010 Ben joined the Army as an active duty soldier.

Before heading for Basic Training at Fort Benning, GA they gave Sarge a new uniform. Ben instantly recognized that Sarge was promoted to General Sarge. Dr. Rus started taking daily pictures of things General Sarge was doing each day and it has now grown into an organization that “deploys” Build-A-Bear Workshop teddy bears to military children.

General Sarge’s mission has grown beyond the Jeffrey’s living room to a website serving hundreds of military families.  Weekly and monthly salutes go out to honor military children, the Gift-A-Bear Campaign including the Fallen Hero Bear and Deployment Bear Mascot programs.  Operation B.E.A.R. recruits individuals, businesses and organizations to Bring Encouragement And Recognition as sponsors.  Additionally, General Sarge’s Families First Campaign partners with the Fresh Wind Ministries to help offset the traveling expense to a family member so they are able to attend the graduation of their troop from Basic Training.

Janie  DeVos entered How High Can You Fly?, in a national poetry contest, where it received a third place award.  She was then invited by River Road Press to have the poem made into a children’s book, and was paired up with illustrator Renee Rejent from Boston, MA.  Their combined efforts resulted in the hard-cover picture book, How High Can You Fly?, which is now available in major bookstores, and is also found in libraries and schools throughout the United States and abroad.

In 2003, Janie teamed up with Ms. Nancy Marsh, a South Florida art teacher, to create a second hard-cover children’s picture book; The Path Winds Home.  Both books grabbed the attention of a New York publisher, East End Publishing, and in 2006 Janie and East End joined forces to began work on her third and best-selling book to date;  Barthello’s Wing.  Scholastic Books was interested in including Barthello’s Wing in their American and North American Book Fairs, and asked that it be produced in soft-cover.  It was, and to date it has sold over 80,000 copies from its debut in January, 2007.

Janie’s stories teach gentle lessons about love, tolerance and acceptance and appreciation of people’s differences, and recognizing the special gifts that each one of us possesses.  They vary in age appropriatness for 3-7 yr. olds.  Herby Hoyt and the Tin Can Trees will be coming out next spring; a story about littering and learning to recycle.

Additionally her first adult novel, The Wart Buyer, is coming out in 2013.  It is an historical fiction which takes place at the turn of the 20th century in the Blue Ridge Mtns. of North Carolina which is where Janie calls home.

Nancy B. Kennedy worked in newspapers for many years, including a stint as an editor for Dow Jones’s pioneering computer news service in the 1980s. As a financial writer, she worked for many newspapers and magazines, including the New York Times and the online Wall Street Journal, and for the financial services firm Merrill Lynch. As an editor she has worked for such well-respected publishing houses as Princeton University Press and Ecco Press.

Nancy is the author of Miracles and Moments of Grace which brings together fifty heartfelt and inspiring first-person stories from our nation’s military chaplains.

These faith-filled men and women cherish their role as spiritual advisers to our country’s three million active and reserve duty military personnel. Whether fulfilling their military calling in combat situations or in humanitarian missions, deployed or stateside, military chaplains are eyewitnesses to amazing displays of divine intervention, both in small moments of grace and through miracles of breathtaking wonder.

The chaplains’ stories come straight from the headlines: Military chaplains were in Beirut when a truck bomb leveled a military barracks in 1983. They were at the bombing of the Khobar Towers complex in Saudi Arabia in 1996. They were in Mosul, Iraq, when a dining tent filled to capacity with soldiers was bombed in 2004. They were at the Pentagon and the Twin Towers during the 9/11 attacks.

In telling these stories from military chaplains—stories that speak of everything from the loneliness of a Christmas spent far from home to the terror of facing an armed homicidal soldier—this book makes it clear: Military chaplains face some of the darkest moments of the human experience and bring the light of faith with them.

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.

During that time, I served a s everything from a karate and self-defense instructor (yes, I have a black belt and 2 brown belts!), a personal trainer, a couples/honeymoon/family cruise and vacation travel company owner. Throughout all of my life, one thing has tied everything together– my love of working with people, and doing what I could to help them achieve their goals. Karate, self-defense, personal training, even travel… all of those career paths prepared me for my eventual road in marriage and family therapy. Helping others. Making people happier than they were, more secure, more confident, more capable.”

Russer is an author, coach and speaker for the Live Outrageously movement. He is going to help military families and their friends navigate through change, transition and adjusting to a new normal. With 40 years of corporate, entrepreneurial and life skills experience, he can shed new light onto one of the most common aspects of military life: change.

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.  Visit Linda at www.shiningserviceworldwide.com.

Military Mom Talk Radio welcomes John Gorman of Pocket Constitution, Author Sandra Linhart, and Michael Russer of Go Army Homes

John Gorman was born in Minnesota, attended high school in Illinois and Iowa. After graduation enlisted in the United States Air force where he served as an Aircraft Loadmaster out of Charleston AFB South Carolina on C141 Star lifter cargo aircraft, accumulating 10,000 flight hours hauling cargo and troops all over the world. He was involved in many campaigns, some of these were Operation Desert Storm/Gulf War, Operation Urgent Fury, Grenada, missions to Beirut, Operation Just Cause, Panama as well as humanitarian missions to Haiti, Somalia and elsewhere, including some stateside. He graduated from the NCO Academy, and attended the Community College of the Air Force, was awarded the Air Medal, Humanitarian Service Medal and the Meritorious Service Award, achieved the rank of MSgt and was honorably discharged in 1997. He earned his FCC Amateur Radio License, FAA Aircraft Dispatcher license and later his FAA Private Pilot License in 2000.
 
He started his Pocket Constitution site as a labor of love and a hobby with his mom in mind in 1997 the year she died. His mother loved her country, was a member of the American Legion and VFW Ladies Auxiliary’s she’d sell poppies every year and during the Vietnam War bought and wore MIA bracelets. His grandfather was a WWI Veteran, father was a WWII Veteran, uncle is a Korean War Veteran and brother is a Vietnam War Veteran, all loved and love their country. There were additional reasons though that he started this Pocket Constitution site, some of them are as follows. He found it very difficult finding pocket constitutions and remembers calling the Government Printing Office about it back then and the GPO representative had know idea what he was talking about. Also he believes it is important to have a more informed citizenry, public and voter. Too many of our institutions, media outlets and schools no longer inform us about the ideas of America’s founders. John now resides in Henderson, Nevada, and is the owner and sole proprietor of Dorseygor Press.  100% Veteran Owned.

Sandra Miller Linhart was born and raised in the mountainous town of Lander, Wyoming.  Here she was able to cultivate her love of reading, due in no small part to the fact the nearest record store was a two hour drive away, and the local radio station played only country and classic music.  Were it not for this, Ms. Linhart might today be a rock star, or, at the very least, have better taste in music.  However, with a well-stocked library within walking distance, she often found herself taking long journeys into the wonderful worlds created by the minds of Ursula K. Le Guin, Madeleine L’Engle, Stephen King and, of course, Judy Blume in the dusty basement of the Fremont County Public Library.

Growing up in poverty, Sandra’s escape from her stark reality came printed and neatly tucked between the dust-laden, beaten covers on the library bookshelves, yearning for attention.  Not content merely to travel to these places created by the wordsmiths she admired, Sandra knew she wanted to craft her own mental destinations for others to enjoy.

Being deployed is a fact of life for soldiers.  Humanitarian efforts, operations other than war (OOW), peaceful or wartime missions, a soldier’s duty is to be there.  Sometimes it means leaving little ones behind wondering why.

DADDY’S BOOTS & MOMMA’S BOOTS give a voice to our little ones’ questions and concerns:  Where does Daddy or Momma go?  What does he do?  Might she get hurt?  When will they come back?  But, more importantly, the books give assurance and hope to military children that their parent’s duty is an honorable one.
