Military families are far from the average American family.

While on active duty, families learn resilience, resourcefulness, time management, organizational skills, flexibility, delayed gratification and, of course, how to establish a new normal after every PCS.

Our show is dedicated to curating knowledge, resources and relevant stories for military spouses (by military spouses and military family advocates) so they can continue to make confident and informed decisions for themselves and their families. Because let's face it... we know who's REALLY "Holding Down the Fort."

One of the best Veteran, Mil Spouse shows out here!

This podcast is a phenomenal addition to my day. The host and guest are first class and the knowledge shared is vital to success. Thank you for what you do to keep us current and for the effort to support and highlight the military/Veteran community. 🤙🏼

Jen is a fun and lively host who provides a good balance of showcasing her guests while also sharing her own relatable stories and expereinces. Her podcasts feel like a conversation between two people that you get to listen in on. I would highly recommend giving Holding Down the Fort a listen!

Kirst Nav ,

Knowledgeable + Encouraging

This is the resource the military community has needed for SO long. Jen does a beautiful job of bringing content experts from all branches and experiences to the table to connect resources to the military community.
