Military families lead a very different life than civilian families do. Military families come from all walks of life and, when their children are diagnosed with heart defects, the challenges can vary according to location, branch of service, and of course separations that come at the most unexpected times. Despite these challenges, military families try their best to find ways to balance all aspects of their lives with a positive attitude. When a child is born to a military family and that child has birth defects, the one thing most families want is comfort -- and oftentimes comfort is found in what is familiar but many of our military families are not afforded that luxury. How do military families deal with having a child with a heart defect? What special challenges do they face? Who can help them through the difficulties associated with having a child who needs surgery in the first days or months of a baby's life and will require lifelong care?
Named one of five chosen charities, Project Sanctuary was recognized for "The People's Choice Winner" of the Joining Forces Community Challenge by First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden. Their extraordinary effort to improve the lives of military families was celebrated in the prestigious award ceremony in 2012.
Project Sanctuary believes the whole family serves, from the battle-zone to the home-front. The award-winning organization provides military families with supportive care, education, and innovative services -- all through outdoor therapeutic retreats. Of the hundreds of families who have attended their retreats, 90% are still married and zero suicides have been reported. Program outcomes such as that are highly commendable in this era of intense military stress, especially given the millions of military families soon to transition to civilian life.
"After reading that the rates of child abuse and neglect triple when a parent is deployed, Heather Ehlee was moved to do something and founded Project Sanctuary in 2007." As a Registered Nurse with more than 20 years experience, she reached out to gain community support and further education, plus a leadership team made up of military veterans. During this episode, we'll have the pleasure of introducing listeners to Jason Strickland, the Chief Development Officer at Project Sanctuary. Jason is a 20-year US Army retired Intelligence Officer who's served all over the world. We'll talk with him about the future and mission of this healing organization, as well as his role in forging new relationships to build visibility and impact.
Join us on Monday, February 17th at 7pm EST in this dynamic conversation about sustaining hope in the lives of military families.

It is not just the soldier who serves. Our military family members may not enlist, but they do serve, and they need our support. Military and veteran families must cope with many situations that civilians will never face. Join us for a discussion on VOW Talk Radio, Tuesday, June 5, at 7:00 pm (EDT) about the issues that redefine the way our military and veteran families live out every day life, and the support services available to meet their needs.
Veronica La Duke will be joining the VOW Talk Radio team to share about the VFW National Home for Children, which serves as a living memorial to America’s veterans by helping military and veteran families through challenging times and equipping them for future success.
The VFW National Home for Children has a variety of services including connecting families with supportive services and resources in their own communities, as well as providing on-campus programs which include support for military families facing deployment challenges, veterans juggling VA Vocational Rehabilitation with family obligations, and other difficult situations that may arise.

On Monday, November 25th, we'll culminate recognition of National Military Family Appreciation Month, with a view of resilient military families via Bill and Stephanie Hamm. The media has often spotlighted their daughter, Mia Hamm, as a world renowned olympic and world cup soccer champion. Her team paved the way for the formation of the 1st woman's professional soccer league, the 1st FIFA Woman's World Cup in the sport and two Olympic team medals.
Growing Up Base to Base, Mia is one of six children raised inside the military culture, moving seven times during Bill Hamm's career as an Air Force fighter pilot. Like many military families they became closer and more resilient as a result of their frequent transitions. Yet, their ability to transcend challenges and move forward with courage was put through an unexpected test when their son, Garrett, died of bone marrow disease complications. For Mia, losing her "soccer buddy" led her to form a foundation to help other families facing similar circumstances.
The desire to help others in extraordinary ways appears to be a Hamm family trait. Bill and Stephanie Hamm serve as board member volunteers with the McRae-Gaines Learning Center, providing opportunity for "excellent education from the least to the greatest."
Together with Bill and Stephanie, we'll reflect on the challenges military families face and how those lessons in resiliency can affect positive change within our communities. Join us as we delve into The Hamm Family's military roots and beyond -- with a spotlight on National Military Family Appreciation Month.

Liz considers it her duty to advocate for Veterans that are mistreated by the government when they get home and have been mistreated while serving our country. Her personal story has made her a perfect spokeswoman for those that are mistreated. Her own show starts on January 9th on SHR Media and Pundit Press. She will continue making people aware of the bad treatment of our veterans.
If you have questions for Liz there is two options for them. You can put them in chat or private message them to either GulfDogs or SmokieTX. Calling in is also an option.
