This is a place for spouses of veterans to easily access information and share the ups and downs of leaving the military lifestyle.
We all heard the term at one point on another during our spouse's time in the military. Household 6.We were the support group, caretaker, wife/husband, launder, chef, friend, and a plethora of other hats. Our spouse has gotten out, but the above jobs haven't dissipated, in fact for many it has become harder.Both the veteran and the spouse are adjusting.This is a safe place to help process that adjustment.After realizing how little support is available for veteran's spouses, we decided to do something about it.We are bringing resources such as ETS'ing information, disability information, little to no cost counseling,reading material, blogs, career information (including companies that hire and companies that help with resume writing), PTSD/TBI support,businesses you can locally support that are veteran or veteran spouse owned,K9 organization,as well as better known sources such as the VA,American Legion, and DAV into one place.From the minute the military member transitions to a veteran,this is where you can go for reliable and helpful information.Our goal is to unite the veteran community and provide families with the necessary resources to thrive upon leaving the military.

BJ Norris Shoot in Ecuador and my first Steel Challenge. Since then, it’s been an incredible ride that I wouldn’t trade for anything. I did make one departure from the shooting sports in 2009 when I decided to enlist in the U.S. Army. Unfortunately, I found out about a previously unknown problem with my lower back during Basic Training, and was discharged in early 2010. Fortunately, it’s not a particularly serious problem, and my main limitation is just not being able to put on a 50 lb ruck and march for 10 miles. In the past couple years, I’ve been very blessed to receive some great support from my sponsors, friends and family that have allowed me to focus on competitive shooting.
