From the Homefront: 2017 Coast Guard Military Child of the Year

A word often-used to describe military kids is resilience. One Coast Guard kid has brought new meaning to the word, and even received a national award in recognition for her enduring spirit in the face of adversity. Mary Kate Cooper, 17, is that kid, well, teen! Read the full blog to hear about her story. Congratulations to Mary on her selection as not only Operation Homefront’s Coast Guard Military Child of the Year, but the overall winner out of all five military service branches! Great job representing Team Coast Guard!

It’s moving season: Keeping your relationship strong and finances in check during this hectic time

Moving can put a strain on even the strongest of relationships. Not only are you stressed about all the things you need to do, but you also may feel emotional about leaving the place you call home. During the move, it’s more important than ever for you and your partner to work together as a team.
