Military life is wonderful…but it’s also chaotic, busy, unpredictable and ever-changing. As milspouses we’re expected to both bloom where we’re planted while also hurrying up and waiting. Honestly, striking a balance can be a challenge. With constant changes and surprise demands, flexibility, positivity and organization are a must!

That’s why I have a secret weapon.

Meet “Patriotic Jackie”

Hi, I’m Jackie. “Patriot Jackie” to be precise. I’m an Army wife, a mom of two, a freelance writer and the name behind the brand-new red, white and blue ROSIE Planner!  I recently had the inside track to this incredible project and in return for my input, I received a planner named after me! Talk about feeling like a muse!

Let me tell you, this isn’t just any planner — no — the ROSIE Planner was designed just for military families to help us stay on top of things.

The ROSIE Planner is the lifestyle planner designed for today’s military spouse. That’s right, it’s perfect for folks like you and me who need to write things down, appreciate calendars and love military-related checklists. Why? Because we like to stay on top of this topsy-turvy military lifestyle as much as we possibly can.

The ROSIE Planner features three different chic designs, 12 months of undated calendar pages, 52 weekly pages, military holidays, PCS & Deployment checklists, military lifestyle tips and more.

Just like WWII icon “Rosie the Riveter” with her “We can do it” spirit, ROSIE Planner creators Lakesha Cole and Krystel Spell wish to share that enthusiasm and empower military families through the art of organization. With a combined 28 years of military life experience between them, the two business owners and digital entrepreneurs developed ROSIE, in partnership with Armed Forces Insurance, to strengthen our military families as they support our country.


Don’t you just love this concept? Do you want one or know someone who would?

Here are great reasons to buy or gift the ROSIE Planner:

  • For you — treat yo’self
  • As a holiday gift for a milspouse
  • For fundraisers (e.g. silent auctions/drawings/giveaways)
  • For a brand-new milspouse
  • For someone whose spouse is about to deploy
  • For a milspouse about to make a PCS move

We know that military life can’t always be planned out, but having one place to write and store daily tasks can make all the difference in the world. ROSIE Planner is your answer. If you’re ready to #GETROSIE, please visit
