IF WE SAY WE ARE NOT GOING TO BE NOT LIKE THE NORM , THEN WHAT , WHAT KINGS .
Though she’s 8,000 miles from her New York City birthplace, Beatriz Trujillo feels right at home. “What’s great is I get to work with the troops, the command team and the Afghan nationals as well, on foregin claims processing and intakes,” the US Army paralegal, currently stationed in Kandahar, tells Talking with Heroes host Bob Calvert on the occasion of Women’s History Month. “We try to compensate them for any loss of personal property, which improves their morale and way of life. And I see that we help change negative perceptions they may have of soldiers in their country.”
While deployed in Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom, Brad Christian spent months battling terrorists from a helicopter. And though he’s now back home in Virginia running his own consulting group, he continues to use the lessons learned as a Green Beret. “Throughout my military career, knowing that people around me were willing to sacrifice for me made me want to be the best that I could. And over the years I’ve seen how that bond is universal among members of the Special Forces,” he tells Navy SEAL Radio host David Rutherford. “Today I try to encourage people to have a deeper commitment to whatever organization they’re a part of, whether it’s a church group or corporaton. I try to share what I learned in the special ops, which is to keep all missions focused; know what you're trying to accomplish, do it to the best of your ability, and be willing to sacrifice to accomplish the mission.”
Susan Wagers—whose own post-50 life was fraught with divorce, job loss, illness and unemployment—explains how implementing standard operating proceedures can bring military families back from the brink of most any hardship. “Keep in mind that the SOP is a set of written instructions that document a routine that’s followed by an individual or an organization. And you have to customize each SOP to fit you, your family and your household,” the life coach tells Army Wife Radio host Tara Crooks. “When I created an SOP for one military couple to cover their move to new location, they were able to find safety-deposit keys, insurance policies, tax records, and their kids’ medical records. The medical records were particularly important in getting them enrolled in their new school.”
Joe Byron knows what it means to serve—and for his dad’s generation to do so too. Five years ago, the Vietnam veteran and retired law-enforcement officer in Manchester, N.H., founded Honor Flight New England, a non-profit organization that transports World War II vets to the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C., at no cost. HFNE made its first trip in June 2009—an experience that brought tears of joy to Joe’s eyes. “We had 19 World War II veterans; 15 POWs and one vet who lost his sight while serving,” he tells American Heroes Radio host Lt. Raymond E. Foster. “It was incredible to see the excitement in their faces about being able to travel down to our nation’s capital. A lot of them had never been there. And those who had, haven’t been back since 2004, when the memorial was inveiled. But all of them were thrilled that younger folks remember their service.”
Raising kids in a military household is no easy task, particularly when they take their cues from non-military children. During an interview with David Bredehoft, co-author of Raising Likeable, Responsible, Respectful Children—from Toddlers to Teens—in an Age of Overindulgence, Army Wife Radio host Tara Crooks recalls her own woes arising from just such a scenario when instructing daughter Chloe, 6, to pack her lunch for school. Chloe’s protest? “Izzy’s mom packs her lunch.” Tara’s response? “Well, good for Izzy’s mom. That's how her family works and this is how our family works. Do you want to eat the school lunch? If not, then you pack your own lunch." And David, a Concordia University Professor of Psychology—who warns that over-indulging little ones can be detrimental—couldn’t agree more. “Good for you for saying that! You're on the right track there,” he tells our host.

The Enrolled Agent profession dates back to 1884 when, after questionable claims had been presented for Civil War losses, Congress acted to regulate persons who represented citizens in their dealings with the U.S. Treasury Department.

Please join me Tuesday Aug 12th at 11 am CST as I share a teaching The Lord gave me in 2011- that I wrote down on my site www.withhiminheavenlyplaces.com under teachings. So here is one of those. I called this The Word Of The Lord Came To Me Saying, What Do You See.
Peoples eyes are being opened to the fact that God has given us eyes to see. We have spiritual eyes. And if you long for eyes to see - you can learn to see.
This is what The Lord said to Jeremiah-
The word of the LORD came to me saying, "What do you see, Jeremiah?" And I said, "I see a rod of an almond tree." (Jeremiah 1:11)
He asked Zecharaih
He said to me, "What do you see?" And I said, "I see, and behold, a lampstand all of gold with its bowl on the top of it, and its seven lamps on it with seven spouts belonging to each of the lamps which are on the top of it; (Zechariah 4:2)
also two olive trees by it, one on the right side of the bowl and the other on its left side." (Zechariah 4:3)
John The Revelator saw in the spirit realm as well as Isaiah and many others Please join me as we talk about how God gave us the same eyes to see. ~ Char

Voice of Warriors host Mollie Grywalsky recalls how co-host Patti Katter, whose husband is also an OIF disabled vet, inspired her to duty. “Mike was injured in 2003. He’s a typical hard-headed marine who thinks it’s taboo to get help. But after eight years, he had to do something. So I got in touch with our OIF social worker at the VA, who put me in touch with Patti, because Patti was a strong advocate for her own husband,” she says. “I knew there’d be lots of red tape at the VA, which would overwhelm any person. But for someone like Mike, with PTSD and short-term memory loss, I knew he’d get to the point where he’d just give up. So I thought, I need to be there for him, be his wife and his caregiver and do whatever it takes to get through this.”
For Jennifer Pilcher, the road to profitability is paved with people—namely hard-working military wives. Four years ago, she founded MilitaryOneClick.com to provide military families with resources ranging from employment to education to wellness. Now employing 10 staffers, her company has since been ranked among Inc. Magazine’s Top 7 Military Start-Ups. “I say this all the time when people ask me about growing a small business,” she tells Navy Wife Radio host Wendy Poling. “We started out with one person working for the website. And then we got a client. And then we got a second person. And then we got another client—and a third person. So I truly, truly believe in the team.”
