Nickelodeon Doing a Special with Kids of Deployed Parents

I participate in this bulletin board. I got this e-mail earlier today. This kind of thing may put some kind of public pressure on the people who hold the purse strings for benefits and programs for families. Certainly not saying that throwing money at the problem is the appropriate solution, but added funding for family programs isn't a bad thing. Check it out if you're interested and feel free to pass it along.

VA Joe.com was contacted by Jessie Findlay over at Nickelodeon recently with this announcement. Help spread the word!

"The Nickelodeon news series “Nick News with Linda Ellerbee” is looking for kids of soldiers currently home from deployment who are willing to be interviewed about the readjustment process. We’re looking for a few well-spoken kids around 11 to 15 years old to talk about how life has changed now that Mom/Dad has come home - particularly those dealing with a physical injury, divorce or PTSD. This show will recognize that war affects whole families, acknowledge the sacrifices of American troops and their families - especially their kids, and portray the good feelings that come with being reunited. Filming will be completed by the end of February.

Interested families please contact Coordinating Producer Jessie Findlay at Lucky Duck Productions - 212-463-0029 ext. 153 or jessie@nicknews.com. "

Thank you,

Would you consider putting an RSS feed on your blog (unless I am missing it!). I like your blog but frequently miss out, because I don't have it in my feed:-((

Wow, that was fast. I tried to click on the feed and it won't go thru...I think you either have to have a feed thru something like feedburner.com or if you have Blogger, there is a link under Layout and Add a Page Element to add a feed. It just won't work to put in the blog web address. I must be missing the Technorati feed...I see where you can add it to your favorites?

Do you accept guest posts? I would love the opportunity to submit an article to drexxell.blogspot.com about traumatic brain injury as it pertains to the military. Let me know, thanks.
