Episode 55 – (Bonus!) Soldiers’ Angels Supports Military and Veterans

Milspouse Matters Episode 55 with Soldiers' Angels Amy Palmer

Milspouse Matters Episode 55 with Amy Palmer from Soldiers’ Angels

On this episode, I’m speaking with Amy Palmer, the president and CEO of Soldiers’ Angels, who’s sharing what they offer and how you can support them or even request services.

Before I talk to Amy Palmer from Soldiers’ Angels, let me tell you about this episode’s sponsor, the Peewee app. If you’re a military parent away from your kids, a grandparent, aunt or uncle or anyone else who loves a child from far away, you’re going to LOVE this cute little app called Peewee! “Unlimited stories, read by your loved ones!” The app and your first story is free, and after that you can purchase credits for more stories to share.


About Soldiers’ Angels

Soldiers’ Angels is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides aid, comfort, and resources to the military, veterans, and their families. Founded in 2003 by the mother of two American soldiers, hundreds of thousands of “Angel” volunteers assist veterans, wounded and deployed personnel and their families in a variety of unique and effective ways.

Their motto is 

“May no soldier go unloved † May no soldier walk alone † May no soldier be forgotten † Until they all come home.” ™

If you’re looking for a way to give back, volunteer, or support military and veterans, Soldiers’ Angels has opportunities, even during this time of COVID!
