Sandra Beck and Robin Boyd have prepared an encore presentation of past episodes of Military Mom Talk Radio in honor of Memorial Day. Highlights from four previous guests will be featured from the many wonderful people and organizations they have had in their past year on Toginet.
Featured on today’s show will be Betsy Beard, a surviving mom of SPC Bradley Beard, killed in action in Iraq, and is now the editor for the national quarterly TAPS Magazine, facilitates bereavement workshops, and has written a children’s book, Klinger, A Story of Honor and Hope.

Tish Stropes joined Sandra and Robin to detail the Fisher House Foundation, a network of houses adjoining major military hospitals for families of loved ones who are ill or recovering. Families receive room and board, easy access to the hospital, a place for loved ones to leave the hospital for a short time to visit with family, and an environment with others experiencing similar situations. Please visit www.fisherhouse.org to learn more of their services and how you can help support their mission.
Melissa Seligman and Chris Piper visited Military Mom Talk Radio to talk about a children’s book they collaborated on titled A Heart Apart. The book offers military children a vehicle to express their feelings and emotions stemming from a family member being deployed. Melissa also authored a very hear-felt book titled The Day After He Left for Iraq. For details on both ladies, their mission, and their books, visit www.herwarhervoice.com.
