  • 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.

Bouncing with Style, By Sandra Beck, Military Mom Talk Radio

I talk a lot about Bouncing. I like the word “Bounce” because it says to me that we just get knocked down and bounce right up again like a rubber ball. “Bounce” also sounds fun. I mean really how much fun are the words “recovery”, “adjustment” and “rebound.”

Chances are if you are alive reading this you will go through death, financial loss, separation and probably divorce in this lifetime at some point or another.  I got hit with all of those in the past few years all at once and it seemed like it would never end. My life was like a wave of pain that kept washing over me – only it didn’t cleanse me it just hurt.
Life is full of hurts and I think the military family goes through more than most civilian families. They have to say goodbye a lot more. They have to change a lot more. They also wonder if mom or dad is ever coming home and if they are what will that be like. These are some of the special conditions that our military families face on a daily basis. One of my radio show guests moved 19 times in “her” military career as did “her children.”  Yeah, it was the “dad” who served but one when enlists the whole family comes along for the ride.  I call the kids the “littlest soldiers” because they are serving too.

Because life is hard and bad things happen to all of us, I have learned that the way I phrase it in my head makes a big difference in my day.  If I get up and “bounce” I smile. If I am in “recovery” I frown.  Same things happened to me, but the way I choose to phrase them in my head make all the difference.

Take my divorce. It sucked. I was cheated on, then left alone with little kids and got the bills dumped on my head while my mom died of breast cancer. Any way you slice it – it sucked.  I could use the word “divorced” but that has such an icky feel to it. I choose the word “recycled” and I feel like I am helping the planet at the same time.

I don’t like to say I am in “abuse recovery” either.  That just sounds dismal. So I choose the phrase “I’m bouncing with style.”  And what does style mean??? – it means getting up every day , fixing my hair…putting on something other than sweats and greeting my future.  Do I hit the mark every day – not a chance.  But I try and do my best to phrase things in my head in a way that serves me.  Why do it any other way?  When life bowls me over, I bounce.  Do you?

Sandra Beck is the host of Military Mom Talk Radio a show dedicated to bringing issues, solutions and up to date information to our Military Families.  Mondays 2pm PST on Toginet.com. Also available for free on Itunes.  Sandra Beck is a writer for MilitaryConnection and a member of VAMBOA and Military Writer’s Society of America This Article appeared on http://www.militaryconnection.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.

Returning again this week, Michael Russer addresses the topic of transitions; unique to military families when a military loved one is either on the move, or reintegrating back to civilian life.  Michael J.

GoArmyHome’s mission is to provide assurance to every Army service member and their families that their particular needs as active military personnel are understood and will be fully addressed. These base specific sites are created under the guidance of men and women who have completed many military PCS moves, who have the knowledge and experience as to the support requires to make a relocation go smoothly.
