This episode is for parents of military members. If you’re not one of those, I think you still might find some helpful resources, and at the least you can pass it on to your OWN parents and in-laws.
My husband had served on active duty for over 25 years when our oldest son announced that he’d decided to join the military, too. It came as a bit of a shock to his father and me, as he'd always discussed other career plans before that time.
So whether you’re a military-spouse-turned-parent-of-military-member like me or you’re just looking for information to help you in this new world of being a military parent, I’m sharing some things I’ve learned over the past few years, along with some suggested resources.
Next, stay tuned as I share the brand new single release “God And Country” from country music recording artist and former U.S. Army intelligence Sergeant, Jenny Leigh Miller, which will be available on all digital retail and streaming outlets on Friday, November 6, 2020. Reflecting on her decision to join the military at the age of 18, the emotional track chronicles Miller’s early life chapters and her calling to serve God and her country.
Jenny joins me to discuss the story behind the song, some of her thoughts about military service, along with her parent’s reaction to her decision to go into the military right after her high school graduation. She also has a message for those with deployed loved ones!
