Former top Air Force spouse Suzie Schwartz has a new job.

She will be the vice president of military spouse programs for Victory Media, a media company focused on improving lives of military families and veterans,

Schwartz, who is the wife of retired Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Norton Schwartz, is a former special education teacher who worked to raise awareness about military child mobility issues through the Military Child Education Coalition during her husband's tenure, according to a press release from Victory Media.

 


She also was a top advocate of the Air Force's Key Spouse program which she promoted as a means for information sharing about base-level programs for families. In addition to her new job, Schwartz currently sits on the Board of Fisher House Foundation.

Schwartz will be responsible for guiding Victory Media's Military Spouse brand, which includes Military Spouse magazine, and the Military Spouse of the Year program.

“The military services do a great job in providing services for our families, but the spouse network is where the most essential information is shared,” Schwartz said in the press release. “This brand provides a forum to make sure very current and relevant information gets to the people who need it, and importantly, it gives all military spouses a powerful voice.”

30 Ways of Thanks Day #6

30Still.jpgYou don't have to know a military family to say "thank you!" A note of appreciation for a military family's sacrifice makes an impact whether you're a friend, a stranger, or an anonymous benefactor.

 

November is Military Families Appreciation Month, and the 2014 Armed Forces Insurance Branch Spouses of the Year (Branch SOYs) want to help everyone, everywhere participate in thanking and honoring military families.

Americans love our military, but many people don't quite know how best to express their gratitude. As National Guard Spouse of the Year Dr. Ingrid Herrera-Yee notes, “saying "thanks" to our military families is something that many want to do, but are at a loss as to how to do it –or in the case of Guard and Reserve, how to find us!”

So the Branch SOYs created #30Ways of Thanks to help. Each day in November, the Branch SOYs will release a video with an action item that people around the country can participate in virtually or locally, individually or in groups. Participants can hash tag #30Ways so that their messages, photos, or videos are spread far and wide. Hash tags #GratefulNation and #MilFamsRock can also be added as a short-hand way to say “You are amazing, military families!” Best of all, the entire #30Ways video collection will be stored on the Branch SOYs' YouTube channel so that it can be repeated in Novembers to come, or whenever someone is looking for a way to say “thank you” to military families.
