Creating Traditions in Spite of Family Separations Due to Deployment

Deployments play havoc with a military family's yearly celebrations, whether these are national holidays or individual birthdays. But especially because a military family moves so much, it's important to establish family traditions that can be carried on even if a parent is currently on deployment.

On March 4th military spouse and book author Jacey Eckhart was the guest on the BlogTalkRadio show that Nancy Brown and I co-host. Jacey was with us to discuss her book "The Homefront Club: The Hardheaded Woman’s Guide to Raising a Military Family."

Jacey had such good advice for military families about creating traditions -- and she was such a fun person to interview -- that I want to share that BlogTalkRadio show with you. Listen now to Jacey Eckhart's excellent advice for military families.

Phyllis Zimbler Miller is the author of MRS. LIEUTENANT: A SHARON GOLD NOVEL and the co-author of the Jewish holiday book SEASONS FOR CELEBRATION. She also blogs at PZ the Do-Gooder Scrooge and Operation Support Jews in the Military, and she is the co-host of the BlogTalkRadio show Your Military Life. Her company Miller Mosaic LLC builds call-to-action websites for book authors and small businesses.
