The Military Recruits…the Family Retains!

100_0369_smallThis presentation is based on the 2nd edition of the book titled “I’m Already Home…Again” and brings you fun new ways to connect with your families along with a couple of requested favorites.

New stories blend with your ideas and experiences, and Elaine’s storytelling ability, to take a heartfelt look at the times surrounding the unique demands of deployment, and how you can enhance your families’ readiness.  Idea examples include:

  • The return of “Flat Daddy™”
  • Opening music/photo DVD’s using your families’ pictures
  • Welcome Home! –  fitting back in
  • “Firefly” moments
  • FRG support – “legacy letters”
  • Keeping the extended family close and involved
  • Reuniting with your spouse

This training opened the 2006 NG Family Programs convention in Philadelphia.


This training session is inspirational and lots of fun. The stories and examples hit home with the audience and the connection ideas used have come directly from the families who have seen them work! Your audience will consider this presentation a gift to them to let them escape into their heads and hearts for a while. Includes a training resource tool to take with you. Here’s what others have said:

“Your suggestions for how to stay in touch with your deployed family members brought a great deal of smiles and inspiration to our attendees’ imaginations.”

“The Flat Daddy™ is an awesome idea!” “I laughed and cried…at the same time.”
