  • 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 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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Following anti-infiltration patrols along the South Vietnamese coast during which Vengeance pulled from the water downed pilots and sank an enemy vessel, the ship rotates between twenty-four hours inside, and then twelve out of the minefields which have strangled the sea lanes into North Vietnamese ports. The only break in this duty has Sam ashore at a dilapidated airfield at the mouth of the Red River to witness the release of severely maltreated American prisoners of war.

Based on historical events in which the author played a major role, ‘Sweeps honors the iron men who manned a wooden ship to help return 591 POWs.

Daughters, fathers and war – three words not often used together. In The Hidden Legacy of World War II: A Daughter’s Journey of Discovery, Carol  weaves life with her paratrooper father, Arthur Dutch Schultz, into the larger story of World War II and the homecoming of the Greatest Generation.  This personal story is combined with the author’s thorough research and investigation of the reality for those World War II veterans who could not forget the horrors of war. This nonfiction work fills in the missing pieces of the commonly accepted societal view of World War II veterans as stoic and unwavering, a true but incomplete portrait of that generation of warrior.

 Our Army Family Relocation Specialists would like to salute some of the many outstanding charities and organizations that serve our military community along with their families and past or present service members. 

We started Military.com in 1999 to revolutionize the way the 30 million Americans with military affinity stay connected and informed. Today, we’re the largest military and veteran membership organization — 10 million members strong.

Military.com’s free membership connects service members, military families and veterans to all the benefits of service — government benefits, scholarships, discounts, lifelong friends, mentors, great stories of military life or missions, and much more.

We believe that the benefits earned in the service should be easier to access and written in plain English. We’re passionate about helping members make the most of military experience throughout life.

Military.com’s members are sharing stories, insider tips, news from the front lines, and unique slices of military life including the tough stuff of war.

Military.com provides headline news and technology updates since our community answers the call and makes news. We also cover the rest of the military experience — from great content like our user-generated videos in our popular “Shock and Awe” feature to our military equipment guide we present what makes the military unique (and fun).

In 2004, Military.com joined forces with Monster Worldwide (NYSE: MWW) to accelerate our growth and change the playing field for career and educational opportunities for service members, veterans and military spouses. Monster’s vision is bringing people together to advance their lives, which is a great fit with Military.com’s “members first” ethos and goal of connecting the military community to all the benefits of service.

Go Army Homes salutes Give 2 the Troops by Army Family Relocation Specialists at Go Army Homes

By Army Family Relocation Specialists, Go Army Homes

 Our Army Family Relocation Specialists would like to salute some of the many outstanding charities and organizations that serve our military community along with their families and past or present service members.  We think the story of Give 2 the Troops is told best by founder Andi Grant.

In December of 2002, my husband, Brian (Sgt in USMC) and his fellow Marine Reservists received their one-year deployment orders for Operation Iraqi Freedom. As he packed and attended briefings, I decided that I, too, needed to do something for the troops. I couldn’t sit back for a year and be a “spectator” – I needed to do something to show my support.

I vowed to write my husband daily and send him anything he needed. But I was also concerned about troops who didn’t receive mail from family or friends – I was worried about their morale. I wanted to make sure every deployed troop felt remembered, appreciated and loved.

I had military friends who were already deployed for OIF and I sent them care packages, but wanted to do more. Then a few groups who supported our troops asked me to send care packages to some of their contacts. My list of 50 troops grew to several hundred pretty quickly.

Sending the packages helped take my mind off of worrying about my husband, and helped me feel as if I was contributing in some small way to boosting our troops’ morale. It was the least I could do.

My 10-year-old son, Ryan, was very worried about my husband. I knew he needed to be involved to help him cope. I contacted his elementary school, choir and friends and everyone was ecstatic to help. Word spread quickly and cards and donations for the troops arrived daily at our doorstep. Sometimes it took hours to bring all the donations inside. Many nights, I’d come home from work to find 18-wheeler trucks with pallets of donations sitting in my driveway! Hundreds of strangers arrived each night to help us carry the donations to my tiny basement, where we’d pack boxes for our troops. Boxes were stacked up to our ceiling. Our tables and chairs were covered with bags of donations. It was hard to find a spot to sit or eat. It was unreal, but it was great.

The more troops who wrote back to us, the more packages we sent. Word about our care packages spread quickly amongst deployed troops in Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait and the Persian Gulf. Families contacted us asking if we could assist their loved ones, and we added those troops to our lists. Our first month, we sent 129 enormous boxes to more than 4,000 troops. The next month, we sent out 232 boxes. And it has continued on …

What started out as a personal project evolved into an ongoing community effort. More elementary schools, middle schools and universities joined us. People from other states began calling asking how they could help. Donations came in from all over the nation and even other countries! It was very heartwarming to know so many people care about our troops and want to support them. The support my son and I received from our community while Brian was deployed, helped us get through a very tough year. There are no words to express my gratitude for the love we received and all the support given to our family and our troops.

In June, 2004, I selected the name “Give2TheTroops” for our organization and we became incorporated in the State of Connecticut. Shortly thereafter, I opened branches in other states. Our goal is to show our troops that communities in every state support and appreciate them. We are fortunate to have many GIVE2THETROOPS volunteers and donors from all over the United States (and the globe) who help us continue our Mission.

Some people asked why I continued to lead our Mission after Brian returned home from his deployment. My answer is simple:

Brian returned safely to us – not a hair on his head was harmed. Many families were not as fortunate as we are. We still have many troops in harm’s way and families who are anxious – this is my payback to all those troops and their families.”
