Gifts for Deployed Military and Their Families

During the holiday season, it’s easier to remember to give and donate to others like deployed military and military organizations. However, after the Christmas tree is put down and the decorative lights are put away, our deployed military and their families still need a helping hand.
A lot of pressure and struggles occur when the family of a deployed solider remain behind trying to maintain the household. The deployed solider not only has to be focused on their often dangerous job in another country but also tend to worry about how life is progressing back at home. My own husband was on deployment for almost the entire length of my high-risk pregnancy of our twin boys. (Thankfully, the twins were born 5 weeks early and my husband was able to be present for the twins’ birth).
Families always want to make sure that their solider is at peace knowing everything at home is being taken care of. When special days like the holidays or birthdays arrive without the solider present, care packages can often be a lifeline between solider and family.  See gift ideas for military families on Latina Magazine: http://latina.com/lifestyle/family/mami-talks-gifts-deployed-military-families

Wounded Warrior Project (and Brawny Paper Towels) Helping Injured Soldiers and Families #ToughIs

Throughout my high-risk pregnancy of my twin boys, my husband was on overseas deployment and I volunteered for the Army National Guard’s FRG (Family Readiness Group).  Part of the FRG’s mission was to help keep the families of the deployed soldiers connected with information, assistance and resources.  We had set up a phone and email list to keep family members engaged especially for those that could not make it to the monthly meetings.   We would visit family members and loved ones to ensure they were connected, including families of injured soldiers belonging to the unit.

 

We went to various hospitals, i.e. Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Fort Belvoir Community Hospital, etc. were injured soldiers were being treated.  We saw firsthand the physical, emotional, spiritual and financial difficulties that were being experienced by the service members and their families.   Besides their physical ailments, soldiers often struggled with feelings of depression and a sense that they had not completed their duty and let down their fellow comrades by not being with them overseas.  Despite the fact that the soldiers returning home were gravely injured (many with life-threating injuries) or had even lost physical body parts due to their injuries, the sense of brotherhood had most of their thoughts wanting to return back to active duty and be with their fellow soldiers.

 

Family members, were experiencing their worst nightmares of having their loved one be injured in the line of duty.  Though they understood their soldiers’ sense of patriotic duty, it sometimes hurt family members to hear their solider talk about wanting to return to active duty (instead of wanting to stay with the family).  Often family members would have to arrive from various states to be near their injured solider, take time off of work, (even if it meant without pay), arrange for childcare, try to manage their household finances (sometimes from far away), try to coordinate where they were going to reside or stay locally while with their injured solider etc.  The toll on family members was just as great as the pain and struggles being endured by the injured solider.

 

Military resources and organizations, like Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), are vital to the care and support needed by injured soldiers and their families.  The purpose of Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) is to…
  • To raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members.
  • To help injured service members aid and assist each other.
  • To provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members.
I am so pleased to once again partner with Brawny Towel Papers to share the news about their partnership with the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP).

Gifts for Deployed Military and Families #ToughIs

Any military family can understand the honor, respect, and many struggles that occur when a solider is deployed. The spouse (or family member) remaining at home become the sole provider and manager of the entire household. The deployed solider does not only have to be focused on their (often dangerous) job in another country but also carries the worry of how life is progressing back at home without them. My own husband was on deployment for almost the entire length of our high-risk pregnancy of twin boys. (Thankfully, the twins were born 5 weeks early and my husband was able to be present for the twins’ birth). Families always want to make sure that their solider is at peace knowing everything at home is being taken care of. When special days like the holidays or birthdays arrive without the solider present, care packages can often be a lifeline between solider and family.
For military service members stationed around the globe, care packages and gifts are a big morale boost. The postal service continues to show support to those serving in the armed forces by offering free Military Care Kits, designed specifically for military families sending packages overseas. Since Priority Mail service supplies are the packaging of choice for families preparing care packages for service members overseas, the “Mili-kit” is based on the items most frequently requested by the military.
The kit contains:
  • Two (2) each of MIL-FRB – the Priority Mail APO/FPO Large Flat Rate Box (12″ x 12″ x 5-1/2″)
  • Two (2) each of FRB1 – the top loading Priority Mail Medium Flat Rate Boxes (11″ x 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″)
  • Two (2) each of FRB2 – the side loading Priority Mail Medium Flat Rate Boxes (13-5/8″ x 11-7/8″ x 3-3/8″)
  • One (1) roll of 106A-MIL – Tape (Small roll that accommodates taping all boxes included in kit)
  • Six (6) each of Label # 228 – Priority Mail Address Labels –
  • Six (6) each of Customs FORM 2976-A
  • Six (6) each of Customs FORM 2976-E (Envelopes)
The kit may be requested by calling 1-800-610-8734 (Packing Supply) and:
  1. Choose your language (“1” is English, “2” is Spanish).
  2. Choose option 1 (it states it is for Express Mail service, Priority Mail or Global Express Guaranteed).
  3. When you reach a live agent, request “CAREKIT04.”
  4. Please allow 7-10 days for delivery.
Additionally, you can find guidelines for packing, addressing, and shipping items to U.S. troops at https://www.usps.com/ship/apo-fpo-guidelines.htm

#ToughIs Deployed Soldiers and Their Families with Help of Wounded Warrior Project and Brawny Paper Towels

Being a military servicemember is a unique #ToughIs life-goal that requires much strength, bravery, dedication, honor, loyalty and service to the United States.  Being a military servicemember and parent requires an undeniable will of strength, character and sacrifice for not only the servicemember but also their families – that is a true definition of what #ToughIs to me.

 

Any military family can understand the honor, respect, and many struggles that occur when a solider is deployed. The spouse (or family member) remaining at home become the sole provider and manager of the entire household. The deployed solider does not only have to be focused on their (often dangerous) job in another country but also carries the worry of how life is progressing back at home without them.

 

Throughout my high-risk pregnancy of my twin boys, my husband was on overseas deployment and I volunteered for the Army National Guard’s FRG (Family Readiness Group).

 

Part of the FRG’s mission was to help keep the families of the deployed soldiers connected with information, assistance and resources.  We had setup a phone and email list to keep family members engaged especially for those that could not make it to the monthly meetings.  It was always a humbling and awe-inspiring experience to be able to witness first-hand the strength of the deployed military members and their families.

 

Due to their tactical objectives, deployed soldiers could be found in high-risk and dangerous overseas areas.  Their focus has to be on the mission at hand.  Though soldiers always worry, they have to remain focused on their mission so they can try to return safely back home.

 

Stateside families forged ahead (often without the support of extended family) to take care of children, school, working, paying bills, managing the household and trying to keep the family on track while their solider was deployed.  The consistent strength of a military family and the fortitude of solider is constantly tested…when the unexpected happens, when an emergency occurs, when the heartbreak of an injury to a solider occurs and now life-long medical struggles makes family living never the same again.

#ToughIs Armed Forces, Wounded Warriors Project, Brawny Paper Towels and You

What is tough?
If you research the definition of the word tough, it says its “…strong enough to withstand adverse conditions or rough or careless handling…or…enduring considerable difficulty or hardship; requiring great determination or effort….”
As humans we are all connected by similar stages in our lives.  Some of those stages in life are periods of extreme difficulty that require a lot of mental, physical and spiritual toughness to help overcome the circumstances.  Starting from the physical toughness of bringing a new life into the world at childbirth through the mental and spiritual toughness of losing a loved one, being a tough is not only a state of mind but really a part of the common human experience.
Throughout my pregnancy with my identical twin boys, my husband was stationed with the Army overseas.  Though I was happy for the blessing of being pregnant with twins, it was difficult not to experience the pregnancy with my spouse.  He missed mostly everything (doctors’ appointment, seeing ultrasounds, watching the belly grow, shopping for the babies, baby showers etc) and he arrived one week before I gave birth.
I was extremely overjoyed that he arrived in time to see the boys be born.  Being pregnant with twins – still caring for my then 10 year-old son, working full-time in an influential and highly visible job, volunteering with the Army National Guard’s FRG (Family Readiness Group), church and family responsibilities – all while worrying for my spouse overseas was tough (even though I was fortunate to have family support and the end result of our double bundles of joy).
Members of the armed forces and their families face real struggles of life and death situations daily with incredible bravery and strength.  I am so pleased to once again partner with Brawny Towel Papers to share the news about their partnership with the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP).

Brawny Towel Papers is renewing its partnership with Wounded Warrior Project (WWP). for the third year. The Brawny brand has donated  $1.4 million to the Wounded Warrior Project, which, it says, shares the same brand spirit and values: an inner strength that emboldens and inspires people to be “Tough to the Core”.  WWP helps wounded servicemen and women adjust to civilian life and persevere through the visible and invisible wounds of war.

Being a Mom is the Toughest and Most Rewarding Job #LifeIsASpecialOccasion

As I write this post, I realize that I have been a mother for the past 16 years.

16 years!

I am in my early 30s (heading towards to my mid-thirties) and I have been a mother basically my entire adult life.

My teen son recently became 16 years old and my identical twin boys are 6 years old so there is a 10 year age gap between both set of pregnancies.  The mother I am today is different from the mother I was when I was younger.  When I became a first-time Mom, most of my counterparts of the same age, were experiencing adulthood, partying and hanging out.  I was stating college, working and wearing an infant on my hip like it was a new fashion accessory. (I used to dress us the same colors or type of clothing, i.e. gray Polo shirts, DKNY jeans, Timberland boots and fur-trimmed FUBU jackets).  I truly grew up with my oldest son – as he grew so did I in maturity and in the role of being a mother.  As I worked as an executive in public relations for the federal government, my job often required me to travel and my son was able to accompany me (to the family-friendly locations).  With the help of my parents, we grew into a little family.

You learn quickly that having a child is 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with no breaks or holidays type of job.  Your life is forever entwined with theirs. You love them more than you think possible – more than yourself or anyone.  Whatever your child experiences so you do you and you share in their joy, triumphs, accomplishments, struggles and in all details of their lives.

After living with just one son (and being a single mother for most of it), life dramatically changed after I got married to a military spouse and a couple of years the arrival of identical twins.  For the first time in my life, I stopped working outside the home and became a stay-at-home and work-at-home mother.  Though the constant care of two babies at the same time is a daunting one, I did feel more confident in my mothering skills.  Many of the new parenting challenges, I had faced previously and with the help of a spouse and now my oldest son (who was now a big brother), I garnered respect in myself as a Mom.  I still learn everyday as a mother and am no by means a perfect mother – I make plenty of mistakes – but I feel more grounded and have faith that God is continuing to help me be a better mother each day.

I had a very deeply loving relationship with my grandmother (and grandfather) and continue to have the blessing of having a wonderful mother.  I’m the youngest of my siblings (since my parents had me late in their lives) and now my parents are considered seniors already.  I appreciate so much that we live near my parents and my boys are growing up next to them and they each have a special relationship with my Mom (and Dad).

Hallmark has a very creative and sweet line of products for all the special Moms and Grandmother that include, Mother’s Day Pics ‘n’ Props; Mother’s Day Greeting Cards, Shutterfly; One-of-a-Kind Creations; Magic Prints; Everyday Keepsakes.  Any mother will love these customized, personalized and affordable gifts that showcase children or grandchildren.

True and Forever Friends #LifeIsASpecialOccasion

Typic

I love this picture of myself and my dear friend, Candace,  because this picture defines an era in our lives and it symbolizes the love of friendship.  In the early 2000’s, I met Candy during a spring semester while attending college and we just instantly clicked.  We were both young professional women making our way and climbing the career ladder in the D.C. Metro area.  We were independent, single, working full-time, going to school and balancing our aspirations with our daily lives.  I was a single mother to my oldest son and Candy was a military veteran.

Candy quickly became my bestie and part of my everyday life.  She easily was accepted and loved by immediate family, who at the time lived in the same area.  Her fun personality would make for a happy girls night out and she showed the same enthusiasm when hanging out with my young son at his birthday parties.  We hung out together, celebrated birthdays, accompanied each other to social events and took a trip to San Francisco together.

candy0001

As is usually the case in life, friendship endure ups and downs and life continues to change.  Candy and I both moved out of the D.C. area, we both got married, we both had children (Candy has a beautiful daughter and I have identical twins boys) and we are both working Moms.  Since we don’t live in the same state anymore, I haven’t had the chance to see Candy in the last few years, but I’m delighted that through the power of social media and email, we are connected once more.

We have plans to see each other soon and I know if we both could see each other today, we would pick up right where we left off years ago because we’re simply true and forever friends.

Life is very busy and meaningful relationships can sometimes get lost in the shuffle.  Hallmark and #LifeIsASpecialOccasion is encouraging everyone to relish the moments we share with our loved ones — those fleeting moments that comprise our lives and make it memorable – whether its during the everyday routine or reuniting with a longtime friend.

SJP

Someone who is known for her forever enduring friendships is Sarah Jessica Parker and she has collaborated with Hallmark to create beautifully decorated and poignant cards, stationery and letters that will help anyone to drop a line to a special someone.

Its easy with Hallmark’s vast collection of beautiful cards and gifts to reach out with a heartfelt message.  See the all beauty Hallmark has and connect with your friend and loved one today!

Care For Military Heroes and Help Brawny Paper Towels Reach Their Goal to Support Wounded Warrior Project #ThankOurHeroes

Military families and servicemembers have a lot of special challenges that most people don’t encounter – everything from financial struggles to the long-term absences of key family members. When you combine the unique challenges that military families encounter daily and compound that with the serious injuries that occur to servicemembers, the daily struggles can be truly overwhelming and life altering.

If we do not care about our military heroes, who continue to give us our daily freedoms as Americans,
then who will?!

In its second year of partnership (last year raised more than $500,000 for Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), Brawny Paper Towels is encouraging people to help our nation’s heroes by supporting Wounded Warrior Project – an organization dedicated to honoring and empowering Wounded Warriors.

WWP strive to raise awareness and to enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members, to help injured servicemen and women aid and assist each other, and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs. Brawny is standing strong alongside Wounded Warrior Project. Overcoming the physical and emotional challenges of adjusting to ordinary life is a test of strength that every Wounded Warrior and his/her family face on a daily basis. The maker of Brawny admires this strength and is proud to support the WWP mission.

Thank Military Families and Help Brawny Paper Towels Reach Their Goal to Support Wounded Warrior Project #ThankOurHeroes

Have you watched television lately or been on the internet? You might have been surprised to already see commercials and advertisements for holiday shopping (even though its only September and children have recently returned back to school from the summer break).  It might be a few months away but holiday preparations are already underway.

Did you know?  Each year the President signs a proclamation declaring November Military Family Month. Last year President Obama said that our nation owes “each day of security and freedom that we enjoy to the members of our Armed Forces and their families. Behind our brave service men and women, there are family members and loved ones who share in their sacrifice and provide unending support.”

This annual proclamation marks the beginning of a month-long celebration of the Military Family in which the Department of Defense and the nation will honor the commitment and sacrifices made by the families of the nation’s servicemembers.

In its second year of partnership (last year raised more than $500,000 for Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), Brawny Paper Towels is encouraging people to help our nation’s heroes by supporting Wounded Warrior Project – an organization dedicated to honoring and empowering Wounded Warriors.
