Milspouse Matters Episode 63 with Trevor Romain
When their dad was deployed, my kids were encouraged and impacted for the better by Trevor Romain and his work with the Comfort Crew for Military Kids, a non-profit organization that has a mission of supporting military children through all the stresses and challenges they face. (Maybe you’re familiar with their work too, and the Comfort Crew’s mascot, CUZZIE! “CUZZIE cares!”)
You are in for a treat! On today’s episode, I am so honored and thrilled to have Trevor here to share with us what he does with the Comfort Crew and also the Trevor Romain Company, the motivation behind it, along with some great tips for parents of military kids that he’s gleaned from decades of working with kids. He talks about some of the stories which have affected him during his travels all around the world and how he copes with the deep issues he often encounters. He is a storyteller at heart, and I think you’ll be so encouraged and strengthened by what he shares.
