This group was created on Facebook September 26, 2009  and has grown to over 1,200 members.

This group is open to all parents, grandparents, god-parents, step-parents, mothers/fathers-in-law, and surrogate parents of deployed service-members of ALL branches of service.

Talking with Heroes is an Online Talk Show Program that gives military personnel an opportunity to share about the positive work they do worldwide. Guests include leaders from military support and veterans groups, ministries, companies, entertainers and others who support our troops and their families. The program is not about politics.

On Our Eight Trips (five) to Iraq and (three) to Afghanistan our brave men and women talk about what they have been doing do to help the people. In 2010 we were with Ft Benning and Ft Carson Army soldiers, North Dakota National Guard in Kalsu, Garry Owen and Basra, Iraq plus at the US Embassy in Baghdad. We were in Nuristan and Panjshir Provinces in Afghanistan.

In July and August of 2011 I we went back to Iraq for the fifth time and to Afghanistan for the third time. All of America can WATCH unedited footage of Interviews with our troops, missions we went on, inside an Aid Station, Inside a Soldier run DFAC (dining facility), inside Enduring Faith Chapel in Afghanistan, inside a Chinook and a Blackhawk and more!

Hundreds of Videos in You Tube size episodes are on www.youtube.com/bobc9246

These videos are also on a New DVD Book Series which will soon include a unique fund raising program.

Autumn Arnold is a single mom of two small children, and was looking for some serious help.  Plagued with depression, fatigue, heartburn, and high blood pressure, she found a nutrition program that after only two weeks of starting the program, saw a great improvement in her heartburn and high blood pressure and her energy shot through the roof.  But the best part, she says, is that she has lost 33 pounds and gone from a size 20 to a size 14 and still going.

As a massage therapist for 10 years, Autumn spent eleven months to plan and open the doors to her own Nutrition Club and has been open for one year six months.  She feels she is changing lives with health and wealth and loving every minute of it!!!

Operation Gratitude Shares the Loss of Joan Mazzarelli

Joan Mezzarelli, Operation Gratitude, knitted scarves for troopsThere are many ways we here at home try to make a difference for our troops while they serve our country.  One woman in southern California has been dedicated to remembering the military in a very special way.  Our good friends at Operation Gratitude introduced the country to Joan Mazzarelli a few years ago, a woman who single handedly knitted an average of 500 scarves each year for Operation Gratitude to send to the military serving in Afghanistan.  You might say she’s experienced – she’s knitted for soldiers before… in World War 2.

Sadly, we’ve learned that Joan peacefully passed away last Saturday night in the arms of her daughter Paula Boland.  Joan graced this earth for exactly 99 years and 99 days. She will be sorely missed. 

Joan’s funeral will be Tuesday in Granada Hills but eulogies will be held Monday from 5-7pm.  We hope that everyone could take a moment and remember Joan and her family in thought and prayer at 5 oclock.

Founder Carolyn Blashak will be speaking during the funeral service on Tuesday on behalf of Operation Gratitude and all the military who have been blessed by Joan’s kindness . 

Joan’s family has requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in Joan’s memory to Operation Gratitude.  Donations can be made here: Donate in Joan’s Memory or mailed to Operation Gratitude; 16444 Refugio Rd; Encino, CA 91436.  Please note the memorial with your donationn and a beautiful Tribute Letter will be sent to Joan’s family.

Please take a moment to learn more about this remarkable woman in this video from 2010: http://bit.ly/ybBxb1  .  May her spirit continue to warm the hearts of every soldier she so dearly cared for and dedicated her life to.  Thank you, Joan, and God bless.

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.
