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 award-winning show, Holding Down the Fort Podcast, focuses on sustaining a fulfilling and purposeful military life through conversation and community building. We converse with special guests from the military community and for the military community to share knowledge, resources and relevant stories on how we can best "hold down the fort" for ourselves and our loved ones.

September 2021, the show made the Final Slate in the 16th Annual People's Choice Podcast Awards for the Government & Organizations category. November 2020, Jen Amos was awarded “Media Professional of the Year” at The Rosie Network Entrepreneur Awards! We've also been featured in multiple media outlets including Legacy Magazine, U.S. Veterans Magazine, The American MilSpouse, VeteranCrowd Network, It's a Military Life, VirtForce, Military Veteran Dad Podcast, and much more.

    BONUS: "The families of our fallen deserve to have their loved one's story told and preserved for future generations." Gold Star Family's Day with Dennis Schroader

They define what is a Gold Star family member, how it's the title no one hopes to wear or think about while on active duty, what we can do today for families of our fallen to not feel forgotten, and much more.

Thoughtful and helpful

Jen and Jenny Lynne create thought provoking conversations for their military spouse audience. It’s like sitting down for coffee with two great friends who want to know how you *really* are, and provide the kind of help that’s actually helpful. Looking forward to this podcast being around for a long time!
