  • 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.

Military Mom Talk Radio welcomes Trudy Harris, author of Glimpses of Heaven, also Jason Strickland and Caitlin McCleary Horn of TroopSwapMay 6, 2013

GlimpsesofheavenThere is more to death than simply ceasing to live. In Glimpses of Heaven, retired hospice nurse Trudy Harris offered an intimate look at the final days and moments of terminally ill and dying people. Now she shares more of her stories and also stories from other medical and hospice professionals, allowing the veil to be drawn back on God’s handiwork, while we are both living and dying. If you have lost a loved one, are facing a terminal illness, or are simply curious about what happens when we pass from life to death, More Glimpses of Heaven offers you an even deeper insight into God’s plan for our lives every day.

Trudy Harris, RN, was a Hospice nurse for more than 22 years and former president of the Hospice Foundation for Caring. During those years she was responsible for all public relations, marketing, fund raising and development, raising more than 45 million dollars for her local Hospice program.

Trudy’s first book, ” Glimpses of Heaven ” has sold over 300,000 copies and is currently published in 9 languages. She remains active in connecting the needs of terminally ill and dying patients in her community with the Hospice program she knows can best meet their needs.  Her latest book, ” More Glimpses of Heaven ” was published in November 2010 and is already enjoying a wide readership.

She and her husband live in Jacksonville, Florida and enjoy the love and friendship of their 4 sons and 7 grandchildren

Military Mom Talk Radio with Sandra Beck and Robin Boyd feature author Mike Guardia – Shadow Commander, Barbara Allen – Front Toward Enemy, and fitness coach Autumn Arnold, March 25th

Shadow_Commander_CoverIn a career which spanned over thirty years, Donald D. Blackburn was a true hero of the Army Special Forces.  Shadow Commander is his story.  Amidst the chaos of the American defeat on Bataan in April 1942, Army Captain Donald D. Blackburn escaped to the jungles of North Luzon, raising a remarkably effective guerrilla regiment known as “Blackburn’s Headhunters.” Blackburn’s World War II exploits were but the first in a storied life that took him to the highest echelons of the U.S. military.  Shadow Commander follows Blackburn from World War II to his days as a one of the pivotal figures in the development of America’s Special Forces.

Following World War II, Blackburn played a key role in initiating Special Forces operations in Southeast Asia, taking command of the highly classified Studies and Observations Group (SOG), which targeted Communist incursions along the Ho Chi Minh Trail. In the wake of the CIA’s disastrous Leaping Lena reconnaissance program, Blackburn revitalized Special Operations in Vietnam, and later conducted full-scale operations against the NVA and Viet Cong infiltrating the south via Laos.  Following his return to the U.S., Blackburn was appointed “Special Assistant for Counterinsurgency and Special Activities,” where he was the architect of the Son Tay Prison Raid, the largest Special Forces operation of the Vietnam War.

Mike Guardia is an Armor Officer in the United States Army.  He holds a BA and MA in American History from the University of Houston.  As an author, his interests include the history of guerrilla warfare, armored warfare, and World War II in the Pacific.  He is the author of the critically-acclaimed book American Guerrilla: The Forgotten Heroics of Russell W. Volckmann by Casemate Publishers, and the forthcoming US Army and Marine Corps MRAPs, scheduled for release this November from Osprey Publishing.  He is currently stationed at Fort Bliss, Texas.

FTEBarbara Allen is the widow of 1LT Louis Allen, who was killed in Iraq in June of 2005. Her award-winning book, “Front Toward Enemy” chronicles the personal and factual accounts of her husband’s murder at the hands of a fellow soldier, and the subsequent acquittal of his killer. How can American soldiers be at risk among their fellow soldiers? How could these murders have been prevented, and how could this government allow a killer to go free?
Front Toward Enemy is the personal and factual account behind the scenes of a case that is to the military judicial system what the O.J. Simpson case is to the civilian judicial system.

Barbara is currently at work on her second book, expected to be published in 2014. In addition to her work as an author and a freelance writer, Barbara is co-founder of Bold Biographies, a business dedicated to writing personal biographies for her clients to pass down in their families.

Barbara received a Masters degree in Criminal Justice from American Military University, and actively reaches out to other families grappling with the military judicial system. She continues to pursue the Purple Heart for her husband, as the government has thus far refused to classify Lou’s death as “Hostile.”  She resides in NY with her four boys.

Military Mom Talk Radio with Sandra Beck and Robin Boyd feature three books, Searching For Lincoln’s Ghost, A Passel of Hate, and Forever Growing – A Journey of Trust on March 18th

lincolnghostPeppered with Lincoln folklore, Searching for Lincoln’s Ghost offers an authentic look at coming of age during the tumultuous 1960s, exploring such disturbing topics as personal isolation, fear and depression, bullying, social and racial intolerance.

It is 1966, and Castalia Indiana, like most cities of that time, is grappling with social and cultural change. Meanwhile, rumors have long swirled around Castalia’s Lincoln Elementary School. Over its long history, the school has produced two sixth graders who claim to have seen Lincoln’s ghost in the school’s auditorium. When Andi prays on her dead mother’s rosary to be the next sixth grader to encounter Lincoln’s ghost as “living” proof of an afterlife, a complex chain of events is set into motion, including the appearance of a new boy at school who harbors an explosive secret, and mysterious moaning emanating from the dark stage after school. While Andi desperately seeks answers to life’s most difficult questions, an unlikely new friend emerges—a mystical bait shop owner named Ezra who seems to have all the answers she’s searching for.

In spite of substantive themes, Andi’s search for meaning is a captivating journey that will both delight and pierce the heart. It’s a timeless tale about the power of love, empathy, and how the actions of one person can profoundly impact another.

PasselBrutal in its depiction of the harrowing nature of war and the price paid by our revolutionary ancestors, A Passel of Hate and its breakneck pacing forge a relentless adventure full of bravery, horrific violence, and first-rate historical-action entertainment.The fact-based novel vividly describes the tribulations and heartbreak of a frontier family with sons fighting on both sides in the struggle for American independence.

Emotions are split and bitter among the Godley brothers as the British led Loyalist army invades western North Carolina in September, 1780. The farms and homes of residents rebelling against the king are plundered and homes burned. Supporters of freedom are murdered or beaten.  The area is about evenly divided in allegiances, but most people want no part of either side.  This is a vicious civil war of neighbor fighting neighbor, brother fighting brother.

Outraged by the brutality by some Tory partisans, Jacob Godley and his youngest brother joined the Liberty Men while their three brothers and many neighbors take up arms to fight with the Loyalist militia.

Reinforced with frontier militia from ‘over the mountains,’ the Patriots chase the Loyalists eastward, catching them Kings Mountain. The Patriots decisively defeat the Loyalists in a brutal one-hour battle, thereby turning the tide of the war. However, it is a bittersweet victory that results in much anguish for the Godley family.

Gripping, visceral and full of intensity, A Passel of Hate is a recipient of a 2012 Silver Medal from the Military Writers Society of America.

He returned to active duty in 1990 as commanding officer for the Marine Reserve Detachment out of Topsham, Maine, later designated as A-Company of the 1st Battalion, 25th Marines. Captain Moffett led these Marines to the Persian Gulf where they were attached to the 1st Marine Division for Operation Desert Storm and the liberation of Kuwait. Lt Col Moffett again returned to active duty after the 9/11 attacks, serving on General Tommy Franks’ Operations Staff at Central Command.
