Don’t Blink

Blink and you might miss it.

Our family will be on the CBS Evening News tonight for about two minutes. We were interviewed about the post-homecoming challenges faced by military families. It’s on at 6 or 6:30 in most areas, so check your local listings.

I hope you’re preparing a celebration this weekend that includes a remembrance of the men and women who gave their lives protecting this nation, and that you are cherishing the time you have with your own friends and family.

Here’s a link to the WLS post that went viral last year thanks to WordPress and their “Freshly Pressed” page: Memorial Day is Different This Year.

Update: here’s the link to the piece as it aired on the CBS Evening News.

    Great feature. I hope the fact that you all “put it out there” helps in the healing of the wounds the separation caused.. It was very meaningful to those of us who followed this on your blog. Again, thank you for all you’ve done for military families!

      That’s my hope too, Al. There’s much to be done to open the door to this issue that nobody will talk about, and much to be done to bridge the military-civilian divide. Now that things are “healing” it feels okay to talk about. I’d like to encourage those going through that phase to keep the faith.


Come on ... I know you wanna say something. Go for it.
