Founder / Editor-IN-CHIEF

Hey! I’m Riley and I’m an active duty US Army Captain and the Founder of Right and Up. I’m dual military and between myself and my husband we’ve had the opportunity to be stationed at Ft. Knox, Ft. Sill, Ft. Huachuca, Ft. Bliss, Ft. Riley, Ft. Benning and now Washington, DC.

My inspiration for creating Right and Up came after listening to soldiers talk about how much they hated their current or previous duty stations because “there’s nothing to do.”

Having been stationed at some of the Army’s most renowned “armpit” duty stations, I can attest that I’ve loved them all and it only takes a willingness to try new things, and get outside your comfort zone. So, wherever you’re stationed we hope you can use Right and Up as a tool to make the best of your situation.


Hi! I’m Rachel and I’m an Auburn grad (War Damn Eagle!) with a degree in journalism. While working as a sports writer covering the Tigers, I met a cute, tall officer stationed at Fort Benning. A few margaritas, conversations about why a no-huddle offense is superior and 18 months later, we got married. We have PCS’d to Fort Huachuca, Fort Riley and are now in Washington, DC. We have a ridiculously adorable son named Gavin and two furry children, Jeter and Lilly.
