Family of the Week – Michelle

Marine Corps Wife Michelle Keener felt so strongly she didn’t want others to feel alone during deployment that she wrote the book Shared Courage: A Marine Wife’s Story of Strength and Service. Michelle knows first-hand what it’s like to go through multiple deployments. You can see her story in our military family documentary While Time Stands Still, and hear more thoughts in our Military Family of the Week series.

Share Your Story

Share your deployment experience.  What would you like others to know about?  Some questions to consider talking about might be:  What did you expect?  How did you make it through?  What advice would you have for others?  What was reintegration like for you?  What did you do to heal from the experience?  How long did it take to feel ‘normal’?  Upload your videos to YouTube or Vimeo, and send the link to, and/or share them on our Facebook page.  Come to Facebook and join the conversation.
