Home Front

  • Have you ever wondered how different your life, your marriage, or your husband would be if it weren’t for the war?
  • Have you ever wondered if wives of other combat vets experience what you do in your marriage, or are you an isolated case?
  • How can we support and understand what our husbands, brothers, and loved ones went through and what war does to a person?
  • Is there anyone who understands what vet’s wives, families, and loved ones live with each day?
  • Can anyone hear our pain and loneliness over the roar of our loved one’s cry?
Obviously we can’t experience war in the same way they did. We can’t get inside their heads or under their skin so that we can see, feel and smell the memories, nightmares, pain and anger lived and re-lived on an almost daily basis. We can, however, learn to understand, support, and recognize triggers which touch their very souls, and often take them unwillingly back in time and space to circumstances where over and over again they relive what they so much would like to forget.

 

Home Front

  • Groups are led by Christian mothers, wives and friends of both active duty military and veterans.
  • They provide an understanding ear and caring heart that only those left behind at home can acquire.
  • They have experienced the stress of dealing with deployment and the effects of a loved one returning home from war.

If someone you love has been deployed or is having issues re-adjusting since coming home, get connected with a local Home Front group or contact HQ for assistance.  You can also find more resources here.
