Elaine Lowry Brye
Elaine Lowry Brye grew up as an army brat, married an Air Force pilot, and ultimately became a mom to four military officers, one each in the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps. For the last thirteen years she has been mentoring parents as they make the adjustment to military-parent life through the USNA Parents List Serve and in other online forums. Her professional life has included a bachelor's degree in medical technology; a master's in business; training in Air Force ROTC; and certification as a science educator. In 2010 she spent a year teaching in Kabul, Afghanistan, gaining her own experience in a war zone. The role she is most proud of, besides being a mother, that has taken her to the White House and to the stage of the Democratic National Convention is that of mentor and supporter of military families.
