Military Network Radio, powered by Linda Kreter, believes in improving the status quo for each member of the military family at each stage of service. Our dynamic hosts bring varied perspectives and expertise to the broadcast and guests are selected each week for their focus on acting and doing, rather than merely talking about issues.

What can you learn about improving your daily quality of life and realizing your dreams? What are ways to share your expertise to help others, or to gain new skills? With our emphasis on real experiences and new or renewed resources, join us each week for information of value that improves your outlook and actions as a member of the military or veteran community, their families, and those who care about them. Everyone serves and together we make a difference.
