  • 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.

Operation Gratitude Introduces “Battalion Buddies”

Having already shipped more than 600,000 care packages to service men and women deployed in combat zones, Operation Gratitude is pleased to announce the launch of “Battalion Buddies” — a new program designed to serve and encourage the young children of deploying troops.

In cooperation with Family Readiness Officers and battalion leaders nationwide, Operation Gratitude will begin providing special stuffed toys – known as Battalion Buddies – to the sons and daughters of U.S. military personnel as their units prepare to deploy.

“Our hope is these gifts will offer some degree of comfort to children while their moms and dads are far away, serving their country,” explained Operation Gratitude founder, Carolyn Blashek.  “We want the children to know that they too have caring friends across the country who are aware of their sacrifices and send their appreciation.”

Aided by an initial donation of 28,000 stuffed toys hand-made by employees of the McKesson Corporation, and a follow-up donation of the cards by Tobu Print Group, Operation Gratitude was inspired to provide Battalion Buddies by the Commanding Officer of the National Guard armory in which the group operates.  LTC Angel Ortiz, seeing the McKesson stuffed animals during a recent Care Package Assembly, asked whether Operation Gratitude could donate some for his units that would soon deploy.

“I realized these cuddly animals would be a perfect item for the children to hug as they were about to say ‘Good-bye’ to their parent,” said LTC Ortiz.  “In addition, the animals would be a beautiful gift from the American people to say ‘Thank You’ to the military children who serve our nation in their own special and courageous way.”

As with its Care Packages to deployed troops, Operation Gratitude’s Battalion Buddies program will provide every American opportunities to encourage the children of troops serving in combat by making financial donations to purchase and ship Battalion Buddies.

Donations can be made online here: Donate to Battalion Buddies or by check made payable and addressed to:

Encino, CA 91436

When the police find two more murder victims the next day, both killed with the same weapon that killed the victim whom West had discovered the day before, and the female victim has his name written on a notepad in her purse, their focus on West intensifies.

A Sheriff’s deputy, Lieutenant Michelle Prado befriends West, and the two work together in an effort to find the real murderer. As their relationship develops, West finds himself physically attracted to her, but does she feel the same way?

When the FBI moves in to help out, the pressure to solve the case mounts.  West and Lieutenant Prado discover the local murders may be connected to a larger, nationwide FBI investigation into organized crime and political corruption.

She is a military mom of 2 Veterans and has experienced the deployment of one son in 2009-2010 to Iraq.  As things stand now, she expects to experience another deployment next year to Afghanistan with her other son.

PODS provides support to other Parents going thru the uncertainty of deployment by sharing information that would make their experience a little smoother.   The group is comprised of military parents of deployed service members dealing with first, second or even third deployments. This group was created on Facebook September 26, 2009  and has grown to over 1,200 members.

This group is open to all parents, grandparents, god-parents, step-parents, mothers/fathers-in-law, and surrogate parents of deployed service-members of ALL branches of service.

They not only support our troops by sending them care packages and birthday cards, they are also a strong support to each other.

Talking with Heroes is an Online Talk Show Program that gives military personnel an opportunity to share about the positive work they do worldwide. Guests include leaders from military support and veterans groups, ministries, companies, entertainers and others who support our troops and their families. The program is not about politics.

On Our Eight Trips (five) to Iraq and (three) to Afghanistan our brave men and women talk about what they have been doing do to help the people. In 2010 we were with Ft Benning and Ft Carson Army soldiers, North Dakota National Guard in Kalsu, Garry Owen and Basra, Iraq plus at the US Embassy in Baghdad. We were in Nuristan and Panjshir Provinces in Afghanistan.

In July and August of 2011 I we went back to Iraq for the fifth time and to Afghanistan for the third time.

Autumn Arnold is a single mom of two small children, and was looking for some serious help.  Plagued with depression, fatigue, heartburn, and high blood pressure, she found a nutrition program that after only two weeks of starting the program, saw a great improvement in her heartburn and high blood pressure and her energy shot through the roof.  But the best part, she says, is that she has lost 33 pounds and gone from a size 20 to a size 14 and still going.

As a massage therapist for 10 years, Autumn spent eleven months to plan and open the doors to her own Nutrition Club and has been open for one year six months.  She feels she is changing lives with health and wealth and loving every minute of it!!!

Military Mom Talk Radio welcomes Harry Leibowitz of World of Children, Small Biz Expo with Michael Russer, and Writers’ Corner with Joyce Faulkner

Harry Leibowitz grew up in humble beginnings in Brooklyn, New York – throughout World War II and into the early 1950’s his family lived in an old bungalow in Coney Island where ten families shared the common bathroom facilities and he began working long hours upon becoming a teenager. Through these experiences, he developed an incredible work ethic and an appreciation for the plight of children born into challenging circumstances.

Harry went on to enjoy a successful business career, and with years of business travels around the world Harry observed firsthand the plight of children in developing countries and made a lasting impression.  In 1996, Harry had a vision for the World of Children Award when he was recovering from cancer surgery at age 55. Watching the Pulitzer Prize announcements on TV, he noted that while there was a Pulitzer for art and literature, and a Nobel for the sciences and peace, and an Oscar for films, there were no awards for those who were tirelessly serving children in need.

That realization was a catalyst for Harry, and he subsequently founded the World of Children Award with vital support from Starr Commonwealth. A decade later, Harry now devotes all his time to running the World of Children Award – serving as Board Chair and visiting the World of Children Award’s Honorees around the globe.Military Mom Talk Radio, Sandra Beck, Robin Boyd, Doris Rivas Brekke, Itunes, Facebook, Twitter, Michael Russer, Live Outrageously, Itunes Military Mom, Facebook Military Mom, Twitter Military Mom, Army Talk Radio, Navy Talk Radio, Marine Talk Radio, Coast Guard Talk Radio, Air Force Talk Radio, Military Radio Show, Military Family Radio Show, Army Mom Talk Radio, Navy Mom Talk Radio, Marine Mom Talk Radio, Air Force Mom Talk Radio, Armed Services Talk Radio, Military Writers Society of America, Operation Gratitude, Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), Fisher House, Girls Scouts, Boy Scouts, Shining Service Worldwide, Army Moms, Navy Moms, Air Force Moms, Marine Moms, Army Wives, Navy Wives, Air Force Wives, Marine Wives

Military Mom Talk Radio welcomes Fitness Coach Autumn Arnold, Marcella Stretch of PODS, and Writers Corner with Joyce Faulkner

Autumn Arnold is a single mom of two small children, and was looking for some serious help.  Plagued with depression, fatigue, heartburn, and high blood pressure, she found a nutrition program that after only two weeks of starting the program, saw a great improvement in her heartburn and high blood pressure and her energy shot through the roof.  But the best part, she says, is that she has lost 33 pounds and gone from a size 20 to a size 14 and still going.

As a massage therapist for 10 years, Autumn spent eleven months to plan and open the doors to her own Nutrition Club and has been open for one year six months.  She feels she is changing lives with health and wealth and loving every minute of it!!!

Marcella Stretch is the founder of Parents of Deployed Service Members Facebook Support Group also known as PODS. She is a military mom of 2 Veterans and has experienced the deployment of one son in 2009-2010 to Iraq.  As things stand now, she expects to experience another deployment next year to Afghanistan with her other son.

PODS provides support to other Parents going thru the uncertainty of deployment by sharing information that would make their experience a little smoother.   The group is comprised of military parents of deployed service members dealing with first, second or even third deployments.  Her newest initiative for the group is support called “Battle Parents”
