Kids in Combat Boots is a finalist in the 2023 Governor’s Business Plan Contest.
When Deanne Herber and her daughters started a podcast in 2020, they had the modest goal of amusing family and friends with stories about their life as a military family.
Quickly, they discovered that military families around the globe were tuning in to their show, Kids in Combat Boots. As listeners laughed along with the family, they found comfort in hearing the hosts talk about their experiences growing up in an active military family.
Herber saw in the growing listenership a community with unmet needs. In response, she decided to turn the podcast into a business designed to support and celebrate military kids.
