As soldiers deal with the changing weather, their family members are dealing with the realization that their loved ones are at war. One locally founded military support group is reaching out to mothers of the military.
Don't let the name fool you, Mothers of the Military, or MOM, welcomes all military family members. The online support group, who stands by their slogan "as one we are weak, together we are strong" met Saturday to inspire others to be a shoulder to lean on.
MOM founder, Etta Love, established the online support after her own experiences as a military mom.
"We're going to support each other, if somebody needs something, now they've got somebody to call. I don't ever want another mother or girlfriend or father to have to sit alone and not know what's going on and have no one to talk to and nowhere to turn," says Etta Love, founder of Mothers of the Military.
Like all moms, they encourage you to get support if needed. If you have a family member in the military and would like to contract MOM, you can (click here).
