Beth Wilson is in good company – with the likes of (just to name a few) George Washington, Charles Lindbergh, Sandra Day O’Connor and Madeleine Albright.

For our View from the Pier host will go down in history as an American first; specifically, as the first spouse embedded on a mission with the armed forces.

“On April 30…Mrs. Wilson, a columnist and advocate for military families, embarked as a blogger on the USNS Comfort as part of Operation Continuing Promise,” reports The Washington Times.

“The primary mission of the Comfort is to provide medical and surgical care for all U.S. military branches. Missions are in areas where hostilities may be imminent.”

“While aboard, she hosted her BlogTalkRadio show,” the paper writes of our Bakersfield, Calif.-based host.
