Double Duties: Exploring Single Parenthood in the Military| Anchored. Episode 14
April 25, 2018 @ 12:20 pm CDT
In this episode we talk with people intimately familiar with the perspective of single parenting in the military. Our guests discuss their personal experiences as single parents and active-duty military personnel. We capture each of their journeys throughout parenthood and service, the challenges they’ve faced, and how they found the strength to overcome those challenges. Each story is different, but common themes emerge that demonstrate the struggles of their double-duties and also the rewards.
