Bulldog Mom ~ A Memoir by Julie A. Story

 The first time I interviewed Julie Story was on March 11, 2009. Julie shared her story about a mother surviving the worry, the fear and trying to cope with the day to day struggles of having her son, her only child, at war.

Julies son, Casey, served in the United States Marine Corp from 2000-2003. Casey was in Iraq from day one of Operation Iraqi Freedom paving the way to Baghdad; Casey served two tours in Iraq.

Julie and Casey agreed to come on-air and talk about their thoughts, emotions, experiences and events that transpired during 2003. At the time, I didn't realize that Julie and Casey had never sat down face-to-face and discussed what we were going to be talking about live on-air. Needless to say, it was an emotional 60 minutes.

Julie and Casey provided us an opportunity to 'walk in their shoes'. What I admire the most about Julie and her story is that there's no agenda, it's purely a mother's story.  A mother trying to cope with her son at war.

Bulldog Mom - Remembering My Son's Journey from Marine Boot Camp Through the Iraq War is not only Julie's memoir, but a source of healing for Julie and her family.  Bulldog Mom is also meant to provide support to other parents with a son or daughter serving in the military. You can find Bulldog Mom at

100% of all proceeds from book sales go to Caring For Troops.

November 6th, 2012 - Who's it gonna be?

In less than 12 hours all the political 'sludge' will have subsided! 
Thank Gawd!! 
I swear, these campaigns are like the worst of the worst 'reality' shows...staged, manipulated, scripted, vulgar, degrading, brutal, offensive and repulsive. 
Basketball Wives ain't got nothing on these politicians! HA! ;)
All kidding aside. 
 Be heard!  Get OUT and VOTE!
