HOME FRONT HEARTS
May 29, 2013

Home. Front. Hearts. The name says it all. "Home" means such a different thing to my generation. We are separated from our own extended families by miles, in this age. We find ourselves in crisis, with loved ones deployed or activated, without the support to help us make it in life. I know. My husband has deployed twice to Iraq. I can't even begin to tell you what it means to have a group like Home Front Hearts be your "home", your go to place, that place that you know has other people, like you. HFH understands the "front", too. It's volunteers are or have loved ones in the military. For instance, nobody knows what it's like to be a temporary single parent when your spouse deploys. It's weird. It's not permanent, but it's long, sometimes over a year's time. Of course, then there is a re-adjustment stage. Families begin one state of existence and the military changes their lives...., again. I appreciate having someone who has been on the "front". HFH has a living "heart", also. You will find, among military families, the values and morals that have shaped our dear country. You will find, that if there is a need to be filled, HFR will fill it. I have have witnessed them provide both physical and financial help. In particular, I recall a soldier needing to get get home to a sick family member. Home Front Hearts intervened, making it possible; it was the right thing to do. Of course, they helped. Home Front Hearts makes a positive difference in the lives of our military families. I am grateful for them.
