This week, I was privileged to travel to Los Angeles to be a guest of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. I wouldn’t realize the gravity of this opportunity until later when I would be onstage with three of the women I love the most. A diva could get spoiled: Charles and I were picked up at the airport in a limo and taken to the Sheraton Hotel in Universal City.
On Thursday, October 28,2010, at 3pm EST, Blue Star Families Development Director, Pamela Stokes Eggleston, will be appearing on the Ellen DeGeneres Show with First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden. Join us for a live blog of the event!
Hello everyone... I have been engaged to my soldier for about 2 years and we are finally tying the knot next year after he gets back from deployment. Now I would like as much information for a new army wife as possible.
Nowadays, employers have several hundreds or thousands of resumes to sort through for one available position. Of course, the appropriate education and experience are important factors to fulfill a job opening; however, other characteristics need to be of the same importance.
Yes, there are challenges that come with being a military family. They range from small inconveniences to life-altering occurrences that no family wants to face. Inestimable costs include missed birthdays and holidays, worrying about your loved one’s safety, and the stress upon relationships.
What would you say were the most important documents that every milspouse should have on hand and kept safe at any given time? (Besides the obvious social security cards, marriage license and birth cert.)
I've watched all of the "It Gets Better" videos that have crossed my desktop since the campaign began. In these affecting testimonials prompted by the increase in suicides of young gay men, celebrities and public figures speak out to reassure those bullied about their sexuality that the pressures do eventually ease.
We felt this question was very important to post. It wasn't from someone seeking help and advice for a current military family, but something a veteran wife wanted to know about how this new generation of wives is living.
We're thrilled to announce the winners of our Blue Star Museums art contest. The competition was stiff, but these kids rose to the top!
