A Woman with an Extraordinary
Vision for Change
Lorraine Holmes Milton
A proud 21-year veteran, born and raised in Detroit, Lorraine Holmes Milton has made a significant contribution to her community, the nation and the world. It is not just her service to America that makes her special, but her spirit and strong desire to make a difference in people’s lives. Her love, compassion, and desire to help others is what truly makes her extraordinary.
As a veteran, inventor and author, Milton is willing and ready to take the country by storm by sharing her life experiences, knowledge and talents in ways that will help improve lives.
It could be said that if it were not for the military, Milton might not have discovered the many creative skills and talents that she possesses and is using to make a difference.
As the author of one of her most recent books, Disaster Master Plan, an Amazon #1 bestseller, she provides an amazing resource filled with information to help people prepare for natural disasters. She knows all to well what it’s like to experience the affects of a natural disaster. In 2004, she and her family experienced the devastation of Hurricane Ivan.
The reality of standing in long lines waiting to receive a few of life’s basic necessities became her inspiration for wanting to develop a plan that thousands of Americans can follow to prepare for disasters and reduce the amount of devastation they may experience. Disaster Master Plan, offers an extensive list of items needed to prepare for all type of disasters including, fires, tornadoes, and hurricanes.
She’s also started a campaign called the “One Million Woman and Man Disaster Master Plan Campaign” to motivate the nation to prepare for disaster.
The little girl who grew up on the east side of Detroit quickly grew into a young lady who enjoyed learning and excelled in school.
But as a young teen, Milton became pregnant at the age of 16. This young lady who consistently excelled and received excellent grades was now faced with the challenge and reality of raising a child. It was an experience that will always remain with her, but she intends to share that experience with young teen girls. Her mission is to mentor and work with young girls and unwed mothers, to encourage them to dream big and to focus on their education and future. Is important for them to know that their lives are not over if they become teen mothers, and they should not allow their current circumstances to limit their potential.
This is just the beginning of the positive impact that Milton is destined to make on her country.
