What better way to put a smile on our deployed servicemembers' faces than by writing them a letter? With our Pen Pal Program, your kiddos can do just that.
As Memorial Day approaches I can't help but reflect on why I joined the Air Force. My father was my hero, he serviced in the Army Air Force during World War II.
I wish I could point to some patriotic or altruistic motive. The truth is I was kicked out of high school in the 10th grade.
Should you live in the German states of Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate or Saarland, Sunday, November 1 will most likely offer you an easier commute on the one hand, but on the other, closures of the local businesses you might depend on.
Chestnuts roasting, snowflakes falling and twinkling lights all aglow are on the near horizon. You know what that means? It’s time to do some serious Christmas shopping!

I lived half my childhood in the big city and half in the sticks. When we moved to “the sticks” (rural Oklahoma) there really wasn’t anywhere to go trick-or-treating. So my parents made the best of it by grabbing bags of popcorn and candy and watching a scary (but not too scary) movie.
As I was researching Burg Frankenstein, I stumbled across a magnificent prank that played out one dark, foggy night in 1952.
By now, the news of trick-or-treating cancellations at installations throughout Europe (and beyond) have rippled through the military communities much to the dismay of hopeful ghouls and goblins.
Growing up in San Francisco, you would not think there was neighborhood youth that wanted to join the Corps. This was not the case with our lads.
Located 35 minutes from Kaiserslautern, Hitscherhof Farms has been known for their large fall festival each year. Like many events, the festival was cancelled—but that doesn’t mean you can’t still celebrate fall with autumnal activities and pumpkin soup-tasting.
My whole family has served in the Army or Navy beginning with World War I and in all our wars since then.
