    Apr 2, 2009

    During her husband's 36-year career in the Army, Nancy Jones moved her family - including three school-age daughters -- more than 20 times. Jones and her husband, retired Lt. Gen. Tony Jones, are now settled in Huntsville. But during their military years, their mobile lifestyle meant each daughter shared in at least 17 family moves. Between them, the girls enrolled in 33 different schools during their school-age years. A teacher by profession, Jones was able to advocate for her daughters, helping their school administrators, counselors and teachers understand the challenges that military children endure when they are affected by mobility, family separation and transition. But, for most military families, knowing how and when to advocate for their children can be confusing, difficult and intimidating. "Young Soldiers may not have had a good school experience themselves. Or, as young parents, they may not know how to go about having a school conference with their children's teacher," Jones said. "We need to train military parents to be advocates for their children."

  • Outdoor Enthusiast Finds Calling as Garrison Intern

    Apr 2, 2009

    The journey that has brought Christine Easterwood to the Garrison Intern Program has taken her far from where she thought she'd be. But she has loved it every step of the way.

It changed me from a lab biologist into a field biologist."

  • Fort Campbell safety manager wins safety professional of the year
