I had the amazing opportunity to be interviewed by Kevin Barba, host of The Unwavering podcast. Listen in as I talk about It’s a Military Life, and our passion project – Veteran Pen Pal Project.

Episode Description: The Holiday Season can be lonely for many people, including some of our military veterans in hospice care.

Find out how Christina “Christie” Etchberger & her organization It’s A Military Life are teaming up to write 10,000 letters during the Holidays to show their appreciation for our elderly veterans (The Unwavering).
