Today Military Mom Talk Radio offer a tribute to military and veterans for Memorial Day. Featured are interviews with Richard Geschke, author of In Our Duffle Bags and Shadows of Combat. In In Our Duffel Bags, Richard Geschke and co-author Robert A. Toto narrate the stories and the experiences of what junior army officers faced as citizen soldiers during pre-voluntary military service from 1969 – 1972.
This memoir provides and inside view of the military on the training fields of the Cold War in West Germany and on the combat fields of Vietnam. It presents a poignant and detailed drawing of what junior officers contended with during these turbulent times in American history.
The authors expanded their horizons of their original book with a poetic interpretation of life in the army. With Shadows of Combat the reader will sense the history of what took place in this crucial time in American history.
Also we revisit our interview with Judy Brizendine, author of Stunned With Grief. Author, blogger, and speaker, Judy is a woman with a passionate mission that developed through a tragic loss. The statement, “Out of your deepest pain comes your greatest gift,” describes her experience.
Judy was a military wife for over twenty years. In 1998, her husband died suddenly on a mountain bike ride, and her grief journey changed her life, perspective, and career.
Because she was painfully unprepared to face grief-just as most of us are-she is committed to easing your struggle to understand and deal with loss. Her Stunned By Grief book and journal gently guide you through the chaos of grief in a personal, revealing, and practical way. Readers have discovered a source of sanity, solutions, validation, and life-changing support in Stunned By Grief.
Music included in today’s tribute are selections by David Ball and Faith Hill.
