Lace up your boots, make up the hedge and stand in the gap
"And I sought for a man among them who should build up the wall and stand in the breach before me for the land, that I should not destroy it, but I found none."
HOW WE BEGAN...
The need for Warrior Wives was realized after our country began the War on Terror. Until that time, a National Guardsman or Reservist could serve his time doing one weekend a month and two weeks a year, without his wife knowing his job title or rank. Although there was an occasional school to attend, there was hardly a need for wives to make a trip to the Unit, unless there was a Family Day. After 9/11/2001 that all changed. Very quickly, the role of a National Guardsman and Reservist began to look more like that of the active duty military. What also happened during that time, was a great change in the family life of the Weekend Warrior. Military wives began to realize the need to get connected to the military community, because like it or not this was no longer a weekend duty.
During this process wives began to learn what a great asset it is to meet with other military wives and do more than just plan family days. Gaining an opportunity to work together for a common purpose and help each other through the hard times, gave National Guard and Reserve wives a new perspective; one most active duty wives are already privy to. There is an unspoken bond between military friends.
We are now years past 9/11. While our military does exceptional training for the recruits, one area is still lacking - it’s with the military wives. For military wives, training is not only necessary, it is vital to our survival. We must be prepared to fight the everyday battles that are sure to begin the minute our husbands walk out the door on assignment.
It is with this belief that a group of military wives joined in 2008 to create Warrior Wives. These ladies come from different backgrounds, ranks and branches, but our mission is the same. We realize the hardships and benefits of living a military life outside of a military community. Our goal is to bridge the geographical gap for military wives that need to find community and to promote one another through each stage of military life. With these goals in mind, we bring you... WARRIOR WIVES.
