About This Blog
Rebekah Sanderlin is no stranger to sharing her life with strangers. She’s been doing it since 1996, when she started writing a nightlife column for a newspaper in Nashville, Tenn.
She married a soldier in 2003, gave birth to a son in 2004, a daughter in 2008 and another daughter in 2012. Since 2006 she has written a blog called “Operation Marriage” about military family life, detailing for any and all what life is like for a modern military family during wartime.
When Rebekah left Nashville in 1999 a newspaper there described her as “a smart young woman not burdened by traditional southern notions of discretion.”
Rebekah took that as a compliment — in fact, she’s turned it into a career, working staff jobs at The Memphis Flyer, New Times Broward-Palm Beach, The Fayetteville Observer and CityView Magazine and also writing for Maxim Magazine, Self Magazine, The Huffington Post, National Public Radio, Military.com, CNN, PBS, The Washington Post and The New York Times, and other publications, as well.
Rebekah particularly enjoys writing in the third person. It makes her feel royal.
