Surprised soldier goes from fatigues to fabulous

Surprised soldier goes from fatigues to fabulous

U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Shameka McCloud of the 335th Signal Command in East Point, Georgia is a hard-working soldier, and devoted mom of a teenage daughter.  Given those qualifications we asked her to be a guest on Morning Express with Robin Meade to speak about her military experience... but here's the catch... there was no interview. This was a "Stories of Courage: The Give Back" makeover ambush!

We isolated SSG McCloud in a room and told her a producer would be coming up to walk her down to Studio H for her interview... but instead HLN's Robin Meade walked in with camera crew and surprised McCloud with a special day of pampering.

Surprise for Single Military Mom and her two daughters

We were thrilled to be a part of a special surprise this morning for Sergeant 1st Class Casandra Sanders.

Sgt. Sanders is one of the 70,000 American service members who are single parents. Her two daughters Kiera and Jade have already been away from their mom during a deployment to Kuwait in 2005. Now the family is facing a second deployment, possibly to Afghanistan next year... so in order to make sure they get as much together-time as possible before that happens we teamed up with Operation G.I. Jane, an organization that provides support for single moms who serve in the military.

If you'd like to take part in "The Big Thank You" here are the guidelines (or visit thebertshow.com for full details):

LETTER FORMAT:
Each letter should be heartfelt, handwritten, original, and free of any political statements. The purpose of the letter is to express thanks to the military personnel currently deployed outside the United States. We reserve the right to eliminate those messages that are political in nature and do not reflect a positive message in the spirit of Thanksgiving. Those letters will be destroyed.
