They Deserve to be Remembered

I was browsing around the internet today and found this great site The American Widow Project, that was started as a support and resource for widows and widowers from the war in the Middle East. I have a project in my head and am in contact with them and will share later if it comes to fruition.

These men and women have served their country well and now their loved ones are left behind, struggling daily to make sense of their loss. If you would like to help, they have different areas you can contribute to and it's an interesting read. Pass it along if you know someone this could benefit.

I can tell you from personal experience, after the funeral is over, the calls slowly start slowing down, people go on with their own lives and you're starting to feel alone and realizing just how long forever is. I pray for all these families that have lost their loved ones serving their country. My husband was proud to serve in the Army for one tour back in 80-83.
