Personal stories of service before, during and after military service.
Reflections of Two Women Warriors
Tribal App, Developed by Rachel Jackson
Rachel Jackson‘s mother called the Army recruiter to nudge her to enlist. She made her way to West Point and graduated from the prestigious engineering discipline. That lead to flying Apache helicopters when life tossed her another curve.
For medical reasons, after 10 years she was out of the Army and struggling.
Listen to her story of family and faith during a tough transition. She turns to God and is called to a higher mission.
Rachel explains to host Jim Fausone the purpose of Tribal App, which is to reach millions and pour meaning into their lives.

Adventures of a Little Black Detroit Girl, by Erica Robertson
Erica Robertson holds a MBA from University of Michigan, worked for Accenture consulting and Nike as a change agent.
She is now a K – 12 Education crusader and change agent in Metro Detroit. She wrote about her upbringing and intergenerational trauma in her book “Adventures of a Little Black Detroit Girl”. Her story is that of a single mother at 18, working two minimum wage jobs to make ends meet.
This interview focuses on the reasons she joined the Navy and what she got out of that service. Erica explains how it was transformational in her life and she wishes more young people would consider a few years in service.
Erica is now focused on education for children of color and her 501c3 “Education at Scale” and her publishing company “Little Black Girl Adventures”. She has a wide ranging discussion with host Jim Fausone.
