  • 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.

When Robin’s daughter Emily started dating Ryan, it was good karma.  Ryan served with the same division Robin’s dad did.  Emily and Ryan are now married!  “Papa” would be so proud!

One of our listeners has shared this beautiful work of art with us.  She is a talented quilter, scrapbooker, and makes the most beautifully hand-crafted greeting cards.  Here’s a comment from her blog – we encourage you to visit both locations listed below and enjoy her work.  Thanks, Sally, for honoring our wounded warriors!

Sally Anne Johnson, honoring veterans, wounded warriors, military mom talk radioSoldier of Valor Quilt

“I got the idea for the “Soldier of Valor Quilt” from my local quilters guild: Cape Cod Quilters Guild, here on Cape Cod. A member mentioned during one of our meetings asked if anyone was interested in completing this quilt front she was holding up with a very patriotic theme for the Soldier of Valor Program. I eagerly raised my hand and said I would love to complete this as I have family members and friends servicing currently in the Armed Forces, and enjoy helping out with any organization dealing with our servicemen and women.  The idea behind this program is to make quilts for injured solders who are in the hospital and are recovering from injuries received in combat. I feel it is a small piece to contribute to make the recovery from injuries for soldiers go a bit more easily…”

“Our servicemen and women need as much support as we can give them. They serve our country, give up time from being with their family members, and also there are so many that have given the ultimate sacrifice. I am particularly close to a situation where we lost two local soldiers, one a Marine and one an Army soldier. They didn’t get the chance to recover, because they gave the biggest sacrifice one could give… I currently have three that I have contributed, and I hope you enjoy the picture of this quilt located below, and hope to make many more.  Please feel free to leave comments or question – I look forward to hearing from you.”

Recently Military Mom Talk Radio hosted Betsy Beard, author and editor of TAPS magazine, shared the following poem in honor of her son, SPC Bradley Beard.

SPC Bradley Beard


In Honor of Our Fallen Heroes
by Elisabeth A Beard
July 25,2005

Against the dark and graceless night
A candle burns: so small, yet bright
One flame alone; one tiny light
To mourn for lives lost in the fight.

Against the fear of grief, alone
Remembering soldiers loved, well-known,
Two candles burn; the light has grown
To honor names now carved in stone.

Against the pain so strong, so deep
More candles burn. Their bright flames leap.
They have a sacred charge to keep:
To shine for soldiers now asleep.

Betsy is author of Klinger: A Story of Honor and Hope

  1. I had the honor and privilege of meeting Besty Beard at the annual Military Writers Society of America conference in Pittsburgh, PA, Sept. 2011. Her book “TAPS” won a Gold Medal at the awards banquet and she received a standing ovation as she approached the podium.

    Proud to know her!!
