Whether we’re talking about missing limbs, torn up bodies, or psychological and emotional damage, there’s a lot of work that needs to be done. There are a lot of problems that need to be addressed. Many of these problems are actually beneath the surface.Read More

Well, you no longer have to be frustrated. You no longer have to worry about people not understanding what you’re referring to because this is the place for military moms to share their points of view, share their experiences, and yes, share their grief. Make no mistake about it, veterans face lots of challenges. In fact, there is a suicide epidemic for veterans in the United States. An alarming number of veterans, day after day, week after week, month after month, and year after year, commit suicide.
A lot also are in danger of substance abuse or accidental overdoses. Many veterans also face challenges getting a job. You’d think that if the US government would trust someone to properly operate millions of dollars’ worth of military hardware that a private employer would trust that veteran with more basic tasks. Sadly, this is isn’t always the case. That’s why we offer employment resources here to help ensure that veterans are aware of the great range of employment opportunities available to them.
If you think that it’s rough on these former or current military personnel directly, wait until you talk to the people who love them the most. That’s right. Wait until you talk to their mothers. This is why this website, on the flipside of its total and full support for active duty military as well as veterans’ benefits, goes out of its way to create an online community meeting place. This is a place where moms can step out of the shadows and simply lay out whatever it is they’re feeling.
This is the opportunity that you’ve been looking for because for once, you will be understood. For once, people will not ask awkward questions. For once, people would be able to see eye to eye with you because they have actually lived the life that you are going through. In other words, this is a very special place, so feel free to share resources. Don’t be shy about sharing your insights. Don’t hesitate to let your voice be heard because that’s the only way we can build bridges.
