My answer to What struggles do military spouses go through?
Answer by Ken Larson:
I have found one of the best sources for current struggles and their solutions is
“The Army Wife Network” with their inspiring messages and talk radio features.
WASHINGTON (Army News Service, April 14, 2008) – “Every Monday night at 8 p.m. a group of Army wives gathers to hear news, relationship advice, parenting tips and deployment support, but this isn't your traditional readiness or support group.
Most of the women haven't met and don't even know each other's names. But over the Internet radio waves and blogs, "Army Wife Talk Radio" founder and host Tara Crooks tries to help Army Families and empower Army spouses.
"I just wanted to mention how much fun I had yesterday rocking out to last month's AWTR shows on my Ipod! It was like doing housework with friends keeping me company," said Kim P. on the "Loving a Soldier Blog," which is run by AWTR.
"There's a common denominator that holds us all together," said Crooks, a Fort Stewart, Ga., Army wife of 10 years. Her husband just returned from Iraq and she had their second daughter during his deployment, an experience she said that she is still surprised she survived, and attributes it partly to the help of AWTR listener support.”
