Army wife radio

Lately I've been tooling around the Army's official website, clicking on links and looking for story ideas.

Just a few minutes ago I came across "Army Wife Talk Radio.".

Though I've only listened to about 5 minutes of it, I've already deemed it boring, but then again I called "Denise Richards: It's Complicated" boring and now I can't stop watching it.

So, I'll give AWTR more time before I give the full report. I'm even thinking about doing a call-in.

Anyone have any suggestions for questions I should ask? Do you guys have questions you want answered?

From the Web site: "Army Wife Talk Radio is the internet talk radio program for Army wives, by Army wives. Come share your experiences with us. Our Life. Our Family. Our Soldier. JOIN US at 8pm EST on Monday nights for our LIVE show and LIVE CHAT in our chat room. Click on CHAT AVAILABLE to join in!"

The show airs live Mondays at 8 p.m. (You listen online, Mom).


Welcome girls!

My sister-in-law, Meredith, and her college friend, Meaghan, are in town for the Basic Officer Leader Course (BOLC) at Fort Benning. I'm so happy I get to share Morgan's and my home with them. At least until they are assigned a room on post.

Dave the dog is happy too. He loves having a couple of more butts to sniff and legs to hump around the house.

Mer and Meaghan are 2008 West Point grads. I had the honor of being there to celebrate with them in May. These girls are bright, beautiful and funny, but they are also soldiers and I'm so proud of them.

Good luck! Hooah.

News from the Benning beat

I've been so super busy lately and the blog has suffered terribly. For that, I apologize.

There's lots happening over at Fort Benning from changes of command to groundbreakings to proposed PTSD trials.

Below are a couple of stories I've done recently.

Let me know what you think.

Too long...

It took some time, but I think I now know how to write this blog.

After a few buy-outs and some restructuring at the newspaper, my new role is that of military reporter.

It's a privilege to tell the stories of our men and women in uniform. I'd like to pass some of those on to you and also throw a few things your way from the various online publications and blogs I check out daily.

Here's one from

It's good to be back.
