Chris' widow, Taya Kyle, joined us shortly after his death to share her personal remembrances of Chris...as a husband, father, son and friend to so many. Here's the link to our interview with Taya Kyle.
Senator Graham's question is about to be pondered in a way that has not happened since the draft ended 42 years ago. This will be a game changing debate.
War takes a horrific physical and emotional toll on our soldiers and their families, and we are currently not providing them adequate care and support. We must unite around our commitment and honor their service by adequately addressing their health and well-being.
We have so much to be grateful for in 2015, but we are not finished. Together we must break the barriers remaining that result in a second-class citizen status, and we must continue to fight until all military families are treated equally.
The reality is that we veterans come home to our families, neighbors and communities who, while grateful, also expect us to pick up where we left off. So where do we go from here? Here are some idea-starters...
For many people, this last stretch into the holidays is the pits. Those of us who grieve, battle depression, or for anyone whose life seems to be s...
Finances tight? Overwhelmed by all the people you have to make happy? These days can escalate stress in all of us. They are especially difficult for people in military service or other dangerous occupations, and for their families.
No matter how many deployments come and go, the absence of the most important person in our lives leaves us vulnerable in ways hard to express. These ghosts of my Christmases past remind me. If your spouse is deployed this Christmas, I don't know what you face, but I remember you.

Several duty stations ago, I volunteered at a soup kitchen. Because we were there to deliver toiletries and clothing, we had the chance to sit with the people who were there to be served.
My military family now numbers 21 million -- the number of veterans we commemorate today. These heroes deserve to be thanked for their tremendous service to their country. But, like many civilians, often veterans are uncomfortable being singled out. So what to do?
We can, and should, create schools that are welcoming and supportive of the children who must frequently adapt to new schools, new peer groups and have one or both parents deployed around the globe.
Throughout our history, members of our military have put their lives on the line to defend our country and preserve our security. As a proud military mom myself, I know that when you have a family member who is in the military, the whole family serves too.
Over 2.5 million women have slicked back their hair and donned a uniform for this country. They have honorably served, often making numerous personal sacrifices for the red, white, and blue. This film is a snapshot into what hopefully is a larger conversation about the many sheros amongst us today.
Yesterday, as NATO leaders convened outside the Welsh capital of Cardiff to deal with terrorism and war, a second extraordinary meeting took place nea...
