My daughter and I found out about a really interesting program a few months ago. It is the Big Brothers, Big Sisters Military Mentoring program. It is for kids who are ages 9-14 yrs and who have to deal with the issues that only military kids have to deal with (deployments, loss of a parent, medical or mental health problems from war, moving a lot, making new friends, etc.). This program is ONLY for military children, and it is not to be confused with the program for at-risk youth! To find out more, please contact the Anniston Big Brothers, Big Sisters office, or check out this link http://www.bbbs.org/site/c.9iILI3NGKhK6F/b.5961595/k.BE7F/Military_Mentoring.htm.

Sorry it has been so long!

I am so sorry that I have not been doing a regular blog entry since May. We have been overwhelmed with family activities and events that have kept me busy.

My daughter just got back from a 5 day summer camp at Camp Corral (www.campcorral.org) in Dahlonega, GA. She had a blast! Camp Corral is a summer camp (FREE!!!) for children of wounded and fallen soldiers. She finally got to meet other kids just like her.

I am going to be starting a Wounded Warrior Wives group pretty soon, as soon as I get all my training and paperwork done. This group will be a special group for wives of disabled Vets and soldiers (mental or physical disabilities). I don't have a set meeting spot yet, but it will either be in Oxford or Munford. Each woman joining will be required to go through a detailed application for membership, which is FREE, to join Wounded Warrior Wives. WWW is a non-profit that is geared towards helping the wives of these wounded warriors. There is also the Wounded Warrior Project, which is for the soldiers and Vets.

Our Girl Scout Troop will be starting their new school year in August. New meeting date and time will begin.

Hope everyone is having a great summer!

If you are a resident of Munford and are preparing to deploy over the summer with any branch of the U.S. Military, please contact Jami at operationreturnthefavor@gmail.com. We are looking for our local servicemembers for an upcoming event. I am working with the Mayor of Munford on this event. If you know someone who is a member of the military, who lives in Munford, please contact me also! Only those who CURRENTLY reside in Munford!

Thank you! Please pass this information around!
