Widow Support Group

Grief can feel so isolating, but you don’t have to be alone.  You will find others who are walking this journey with you.  This network of spouses is an informal group that understands the grief as they have lost and received the folded flag.  This group meets the 4th Tuesday of the month at 12:30 pm at the M&FRC.  The group shares resources, talks about experiences and advocates for Widows/Widowers.


Heart Link

Military spouses join the military without taking the oath, but they are important members of the team.  New military spouses may soon discover that their AD spouse will soon deploy or they are about to PCS, but they may not be sure what a deployment or PCS means let alone what it involves.  Heart Link teaches new spouses (married less than 5 years) about military life as a member and family member.  Child care voucher for a FCC provider is available for this workshop.
