She published her first article in high school back in 1965.  Her writing credentials include many magazine, newspaper & web articles.  She also wrote columns — “The History of Aerial Applications” for AG Pilot International and one on writing topics for webzine “Scribe & Quill.”  She is a ghostwriter, an editor and a web, newspaper & book designer.

She has been a member of MWSA since 2006 and has served as Secretary and MWSA Webmaster since January of 2008.  Her skills include Management, Project Management, Web Site Design, Writing and Layout.  She volunteered for the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center for several years and has led various corporate, community and volunteer committees & organizations. Her goal is to help veterans record their piece of history — for themselves, their families, their communities — and our country.

“It all started when I wrote ‘In the Shadow of Suribachi’,” she says.  “It’s basically the story of my father’s experiences as a young Marine at the Battle of Iwo Jima.  That book has my heart.  It was also the beginning of my working to get veterans’ stories written and published.  Working with MWSA is an extension of that dream…to make sure that all of our history is recorded and recognized.”

Little did she know then that she was simply creating stories in my head.

Through writing, Kathleen has been able to explore many subjects. Her goal is always to get to the truth through the people and places she writes about, real or imagined. Along the way, she has encountered many roadblocks and detours, but has pressed ahead and kept her eyes on her goals.

In 2008, Leatherneck Publishing released Kathleen’s debut novel “The Final Salute.” The following year, Army Wife Network selected it as their July 2009 book club pick and Military Writers Society of America awarded it the Silver Medal. In July 2011, the Kindle Edition was released by Navigator Books.  In this novel, a Vietnam vet and father of three is haunted by the memories of dead friends killed in air mishaps, and must deal with a devious commander, an animal-crazed neighbor whose husband hates pilots, a beautiful, but suspicious wife and a rebellious teenage daughter. The last thing he needs is another war.

Additional work by Kathleen has appeared in Family Circle Magazine, Air Force, Army & Navy Times, Family: The Magazine for Military Families, Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Albuquerque Journal, Clovis News Journal, and in three anthologies: “Because I Fly,” by McGraw-Hill, “Lessons From Our Children,” by Health Communications, Inc. and “Hearts of Steel,” by Military Writers Society of America.

Military Mom Talk Radio hosted by Sandra Beck welcomes Jeffrey Worthington, iHistory WW2 Project, January 24th

Jeffrey Worthington, iHistory WW2, documentary filmmaker, WW2 documentary, Interviewing WW2 veterans, WW2 vets, Military Mom Talk Radio, Sandra Beck, Tina Gonzales, Robin Boyd, Motherhood IncorporatedSince graduating from Eastern New Mexico University, Producer/Director Jeffrey Worthington has dedicated the last four years to creating media that will help personalize World War II for high school students.   He developed a keen understanding of teenage audiences by writing and directing short productions for a high school drama team.  He and his team performed for youth audiences in New Mexico, Texas, and Colorado.

Being an avid photographer and aspiring filmmaker, he has also written, directed, filmed, and edited a number of short film projects.  One of his short films about medical ethics was shown to the Congressional Ethics Committee in 2005.

His documentary, “For the Love of Freedom,” currently in production, features WWII veterans and civilians from across the United States and Europe.  He is currently coordinating the “iHistory Project: WWII,” a national YouTube competition for high school students (www.iHistoryProjectWW2.org).

The iHistory Project will connect teenagers with WWII veterans, giving students the opportunity to hear first-hand accounts of history. The students will film an interview with a WWII veteran that will be submitted to the Library of Congress, then they will use editing recourse provided on our website to make a mini-documentary which they will submit to the competition on YouTube.

The idea that became the iHistory Project began in 2009 through Worthington’s vision of using media to mobilize youth to discover history from the people that made it. He and his team garnered support from organizations and individuals, developed the iHistory website, and pushed through obstacles in the pursuit of preserving our American history and connecting two distant generations.

Motherhood Talk Radio Presents Lisa Kamen, Harvesting Happiness – Aug. 31

Lisa Kamen, Lisa Cypers Kamen, Harvesting Happiness, H-Factor, H-Factor Where is Your Heart?, Motherhood Talk Radio, Sandra BeckIndependent filmmaker Lisa Kamen produced the 10-minute short, “A Passage Through India—Diamonds in the Rough,” for her bachelor’s degree and used it successfully to raise funds for the Sulaxmi School for Girls in Lucknow, India, which her family now supports. While biking through Northern India, Kamen was struck by how, even in the presence of extreme poverty, the Indian people could express joy and genuine happiness. This is the genesis for Lisa’s master’s thesis in Spiritual Psychology—a documentary film she is co-creating with her nine year-old daughter, Kayla, who operates the camera. Together they explore the hypothesis that every person, regardless of socioeconomic level, age, ethnicity, career, health, or life circumstances, possesses happiness or the means to feel happy. Their endeavor to discover possibly universal keys to human happiness leads the duo on an entertaining, deeply touching documentary adventure.

Using the spontaneity of man-on-the-street style interviewing, Lisa and Kayla ask prospective interviewees to contribute their heartprint to a G-rated documentary film exploring the nature of happiness. Mother and daughter have logged hundreds of interviews to date, filming all kinds of people, each for about 60 seconds, responding to one question that elicits the essence of happiness and joy for that individual. These one-minute heartprint interviews have been filmed in diverse locales around India and in the United States including Central Park, Ground Zero, bus stations, homeless shelters, fire and police stations, schools for the deaf, independent living centers, jail, hospitals, houses of worship, a funeral home, people in commuter traffic, in lines, in labor, in escrow, and in debt—and the filming continues…

The film’s point of view is through the eyes of nine year-old Kayla. Her unique perspective—literally about four feet from the ground—means a low camera angle combines with high energy and humor. Her presence, suited up with professional camera equipment and headset, monitoring her sound levels and video, seems to soften interviewees, making their revelations especially genuine. A second camera operator captures the interchange between interviewee, Kayla, and Lisa, accentuating the multiplier effect of happiness on others.  Experts and lay people alike see ample evidence that wealth, fame, and material goods don’t produce real happiness. In “H-Factor…Where is Your Heart?” real people from all walks of life illustrate—in humorous and heartfelt ways—what does.

Motherhood Talk Radio is powered by Motherhood Incorporated, bringing you the most powerful voice in women’s issues today. Motherhood Talk Radio airs on Toginet.com every Tuesday, 3 pm pst, 5 pm central and 6 pm eastern.
