This and That: Good Stuff

It's almost time for the 2008 Freedom Walk.

Honor the victims of 9-11 and pay tribute to our veterans, past and present.

Walk with friends and family in the America Supports You (ASY) Freedom Walk. Walks are being organized nationwide and on U.S. military installations worldwide. 

Please walk with us.

The 4th annual national ASY Freedom Walk will be held on Sunday, September 7, in Washington, DC.  This one-mile walk will begin at 9 a.m. EDT at the Women in Military Service for America Memorial at Arlington National Cemetery and will finish at the Pentagon South Parking lot.  Sign up now to participate in this national walk. Deadline is September 5 at 6 p.m.

Last year we spoke with Allison Barber about the meaning of these walks. Click here to listen. Freedom Walks are taking place all over the country, so click here to find one near you, and sign up to walk. My husband and I have participated in two of these walks and it's an amazing experience. You'll be happy you made the effort, I assure you.

Reunited and it feels so good.....Boy, would I have loved to have a makeover just before both redeployments. Partly because I changed clothes 400 times before deciding what to wear. You would have thought I had never dressed myself before. Are you a wife or girlfriend who will be experiencing a homecoming soon? I received this email today:

{We} are searching for a military wife who wants to get a makeover before her husband or boyfriend returns from being deployed. I was hoping you might be able to help us find a deserving candidate by either posting an announcement to your readers/community or sending this information around to your circle.

We'll be shooting in Los Angeles, hopefully beginning in September or October and finishing things up when the couple is reunited. The chosen woman will have her story featured on Capessa.com and will win a complete mind and body makeover, including a new hairstyle, a new fitness instructor, a new wardrobe and personal counseling to prepare her mentally for her husband's return.

Anyone interested is invited to submit a brief note explaining why she wants to be a part of this project, if she has children, when her husband is scheduled to return home and which branch of the military he's in. We also ask that candidates confirm with their husbands that it's okay for them to participate, since he will have to be on camera during the reunion, and that they send in a recent photo. Submission materials should be sent to militarywivescasting@gmail.com.
