A refreshing first person perspective

I met the host in the chaos following her dad’s injury, and she and her family were so incredibly strong and resilient in the face of the situation. As a nurse in a location where we had so many OIF/OEF injured service members coming through, this family was one that got it right, always finding the light and joy where they could! I’m delighted, all these years later, to find that Gracie is taking her experience and creating a space for other military kids to share 😍

Everyone should listen....

We always hear the stories of our soldiers and those that serve in the military but it also changes the lives of our family and children. This is a great podcast to hear how their service made our children who they are today. Much needed!!!!

Excellent....much needed!

Such a great introduction to what I believe will become stories of America’s greatest hero’s...children in the military life! Can’t wait to hear more!
