As I hugged my veteran during the fireworks at the Mandeville Seafood Festival last night, singing “Proud to be an American,” I couldn’t help but get all sentimental. You see, my soldier is home safely this year, and even better will not be returning to the sandbox (Iraq) due to his retirement last October.

I am pleased to share an article I wrote for Inside Northside magazine and and the on-line article can be read HERE. In this article, you get a peek into the “milblog” and “milspouse” community. Please read it and then afterwards go check out a new website I just launched for Soldiers’ Angels Louisiana. If you aren’t convinced that you can make a difference in the world, click to the main Soldiers’ Angel website and read – then sign up to be an angel today!
