When people think about the stressful and difficult parts of Army service, home life isn’t always given a great deal of thought. And yet, finding a balance between your unit and family is perhaps the most important part of a Soldier’s life. Host LTG (Ret.) Leslie C. Smith and his very special guest co-host—his wife, Vanedra Smith—talk with California Army National Guard LTC Chris Elson and his wife, Gina Viscusi-Elson, on how to make an Army marriage strong, provide tips on ways to survive the difficult moments, and challenge each other with a round or two of “The Not-so-Newlywed Game.”
LTC Christopher Elson, Director of Discovery Challenge Academy and Public Affairs Officer, 40th Infantry Division, California National Guard
Gina Viscusi-Elson, Owner, Viscusi Elson Interior Design and Spouse, California National Guardsman
