Even Warriors Need Help

One of the greatest acts of courage a person can do is to fight for one’s country and be ready to die doing so.  This is the job of the men and women in military service. They are willing to kill or be killed to protect their country and their way of life.

It all sounds so noble and heroic, but in real life there is so much pain that goes on in defending the country.  One can die, one can live. For those who die there is the pain of the loved ones left behind. For those who live, some wind up with disabilities that don’t allow them to live as they used to or even worse, don’t allow them to be able to fend for themselves.

It is the wives of those in military uniform that know all too well the pain and hardship involved. While there is help from the U.S. government more has to be given. To this end these wives formed a charity organization known as Hope For The Warrior.

Their mission is to “enhance the quality of life for U.S. service members and their families nationwide who have been adversely affected by injuries or deaths in the line of duty”. Part of their mission is to make sure that “no sacrifice forgotten, nor need unmet”.

To this end they have various programs that also encourage community participation including A Warrior’s Wish, Family Support, Outdoor Adventures, and Spouses Scholarships.  Warriors need help, too.
