I’m so delighted you are joining us for this series of three episodes of the show entitled “Homefront Warriors”, where we hear from two seasoned military wives & moms whose husbands serve us and our country in the armed forces.
So often we more readily remember and honor the sacrifices of our military men and women who are deployed and serving in all parts of the world. However, today we will hear a different facet of that experience, one not as often heard about I believe-that of the “warriors on the homefront”–the families that are left behind to carry on as their loved one is deployed to serve our country.
In the first two episodes, we will hear from Sandy Goetz about her family’s personal experience as a career military family.
We will hear even more personal experiences in the third episode from Michelle Nash, current president of the Military Council of Catholic Women.
Both women offered as well a window into some of the issues that women and families in general face as they are left behind to cope, while reverencing the fact that each family has their own personal, unique journey based upon many factors.
After the show today, please do consider a visit the Military Council of Catholic Women website for more information.
Sandy & Michelle, I thank YOU and your children for the many sacrifices you’ve made as Homefront Warriors, and please extend my gratitude to your husbands for their service to God and country!
And to my Faith & Good Counsel sisters & brothers…..let’s make it a priority to remember the whole family of our military in our ongoing prayer, fasting, and sacrifices.
