Inked into memory

The call that is every parent's nightmare came for Minnesota residents Charlie and Barb Thompson on a warm summer evening while away in Florida. Their son, Sgt. Jacob Thompson, had died in Iraq. Charlie's fishing buddy was gone, Barb's baby boy was no more and the Tomahawks of Bravo Company,

FRG man

The world of the military spouse has long been decidedly female. Though about half of the women serving in the Army are married, a predominantly male force means more than 93 percent of military spouses are still women. So it makes sense that military spouse paraphernalia would be pink, and

Through Sunday, Jan. 29: "Late Night Catechism: 'Til Death Do Us Part"

I'm not Catholic, but my dad was. Or at least he grew up Catholic. From what I understand it involved a lot of guilt. And nuns. At any rate, one year, back in the day, he and my mom went to see some version of Late Night Catechism in Tacoma -

Friday, Jan. 20: National Geographic Live - Annie Griffiths

Most parents these days know the joy of balancing family and a career. It's become a survival necessity, whether we like it or not. What does this have to do with photographing white-bearded wildebeest on the Serengeti? You would think very little, until stumbling upon the work and career of National Geographic

When Your Child Comes Back from War

Last month, the last remnants of the U.S. military left Iraq. It appears that military activity in Afghanistan will see a similar decline in the next few years. That means there will be a new surge, that of young military personnel coming home to wind down their enlistments and landing

Underwater Bubblegum

The thrill of the chase

My wife would verify this fact: When I watch TV, it’s usually crappy TV. No, I’m talking about the crappy TV you’re probably thinking of — reality garbage, So You Think You Can Juggle, or anything featuring Bret Michaels — I’m talking about a different breed of questionable programming. When

McChord spouse sells teas, mixes

McChord Field spouse Tiffany Swaggart had seen what kind of home-based businesses some of her friends and acquaintances were getting involved with. Tupperware. Sentsy candles. "The market was flooded with those (kinds of) consultants," said Swaggart, whose husband is a staff sergeant in the 627th Security Forces Squadron. But selling tea? That was
