April is Military Child Month. Join Family of a Vet on Tuesday, April 29 as we pay tribute to, and gain more awareness of the Military Children who, just like their parents are serving our country. Show host Debbie Sprague and guest Debbie Nichols, Founder, and CEO of Military Children’s Collaborative Group, Inc.
We will be exploring how military children might feel different, most military children look like any other child in school, but they have invisible pain. They also face unique challenges such as feeling isolated and face many challenges when they are separated from their parent during deployments or training. We will also discuss one of the biggest challenges today, which is identifying where military children are located, and how we can take action to address this problem. Finally, we will learn ways that you can help improve the military child's life while they are experiencing a separation from their parent.
Show Time: 6:30 – 7:30pm CST Listener Call-in Number: (323) 657-1470
Approximately 8-10% of Service members who served in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq experience post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD. Research has documented ripple effects of PTSD on families, including children. Although most offspring are resilient and do not develop long-term problems, parental PTSD is associated with higher risks of distress and behavioral problems among children. However, these youth and families do not need to suffer alone, and many resources are available.
Tonight's guest, Michelle Sherman, Ph.D., is a licensed clinical psychologist who has dedicated her career to supporting veterans and their families with mental illness, trauma, and PTSD. She has worked in the VA system for almost 20 years, and has developed family education programs that have been used nationally in the VA. Further, along with her mother (a teacher), she writes books for teens dealing with parental mental health problems, including "Finding My Way: A Teen's Guide to Living with a Parent Who Has Experienced Trauma" (www.SeedsofHopeBooks.com)

Common Core is an undisputed and unmitigated disaster. The two rollout states, New York and Florida, are already taking steps to remove themselves from Common Core. This is largely due to the fact that both New York’s and Florida’s student test scores have gone into the toilet since they embraced Common Core. Many advocates are clamoring for the dismantling of this UN inspired approach to education which perverts both math and English and will force children to read government propaganda as opposed to classic literature.
No teacher and no school board member was asked to contribute to the Common Core standards. Nor was any State Legislature involved in the creation of this monstrosity.
Under this plan, every teacher will teach the same material with much of the same teaching strategies as every other teacher. This is the 21st Century educational version of the Stepford Wives. The Tenth Amendment is dead and individual freedom is being stamped out.All federalized education programs have thrown billions of taxpayer dollars down the toilet, while contributing to the dramatic decrease in student performance.

Of all the human qualities that are desired by people here in America and around the world right now, there can be little doubt or question that leadership is at the top of that list. Diluted by decades of indifference and mediocrity since the days of the "Greatest Generation" that fought in World War II, leadership as become a quality as rare as 100-carat diamonds and honest politicians. Nevertheless, those of us with long memories do recall touchstone individuals who not only made a difference in their time, but changed the very world they were part of forever. One of these was a somewhat gnomish and often disliked naval officer who created a whole new technology and era literally through the force of his own will: Adm. Hyman G. Rickover, USN.
Today, Rickover remains something of an enigma to military historians and analysts almost 3 decades after his death. Arguably one of the most brilliant and powerful naval officers of his day, he never commanded great ships and fleets in battle. Able to make other officers and politicians sweat and fear for their professional lives, his actual job for most of his career was to build engines for submarines and surface ships. And while his nuclear engines changed the history of the world, at no time did he ever command a ship powered by one. To learn more about this important figure in U.S. history, join author, historian, journalist, game designer, and documentary filmmaker John D. Gresham (@Greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 PM EDT. His guest this week will be U.S. Naval Institute Press (@USNI_Books) author and career submariner RADM Dave Oliver, USN (Ret.). Oliver is the author of the new book AGAINST THE TIDE, a biographical study of Rickover and his unique leadership and management styles.

Tonight at 8pmCST Ouija boards and homosexuality for your children. Google "We are going to indoctrinate your children LGBT." Why and how is the enemy trying to infiltrate the children in today's world. What is he using and what can we do to stop him?
t's really bad. Teaching Satanism and Islam in public schools plus planned parenthood is teaching about gay sex, as young as kindergarten age in some places, along with regular sex, including positions, for all. PP is heavily targeting the 10 year old all over the country with the gay, s&m , bestiality, anything, anywhere, with anyone at anytime was a direct quote from one of their sights for public schools. In my research I learned this has been going on since 2011. Now they are starting younger yet, the kindergarten classes. It's horrifying
All Eligible Youth Be At the Jacobs Center Community Room 4/7/15 1:00 PM
Join us and Listen in to get the right information. Let’s teach our youth to excel. That damn X-Box has corrupted some of our children
Finally there is a program that targets our sons, daughters, nephews and nieces and community youth who are looking for a hand up and not a hand out. A program that allows young people who may have made a bad decision or hadn’t yet reached that level or maturity needed to make the right decisions. Metro United Methodist Urban Ministries in collaboration with Leaders of Change and certified agencies which include Plumbing, Certified Nursing Assistant and Sheet Metal are offering the opportunity of a lifetime and we are starting right here in Southeast San Diego on the Leaders of Change Southeast Radio Show and the Southeast Memorial Page. A Paid internship that pays a young person to earn a good wage. This is a Department of Labor funded program. We are looking for motivated young folks between the ages of 17 - 24 who have no adult convictions, who are now or have once been on probation. It is not necessary to be on Probation now nor does it prevent you from being in the program if you are.
Leaders of Change in Collaboration with the Southeast Memorial Page would like to extend our condolences to all the families who suffered these past days. Our prayers are with you and the memories of your lost loved ones will remain in our hearts forever.

A special two hour show
Be prepared for a deeply sensitive episode about a topic that many people might feel a stigma discussing. Carrie and Roxie discuss what happens when you lose a child, where does that part of you go? What happens when that soul passes over? Through Carrie and Roxie's journey of experiencing heart wrenching moments of working with the spirits of children, they explain why it's important to learn more about their relationship with us.
How can people connect with these children and "see" them grow in the spirit world? These gentle beings of light and pure love are with us and continue to sta connected to us, sometimes after the most tragic of circumstances. Our spirit guides continue to amaze us with their signs and guidance. Walk with us through the veil as we hold the tiniest of hands to guide us.
Carrie and a Roxie will take calls in the second half of the show for discussion, questions and readings.
