Saluting the Military Mom
Operation Homefront-Florida is proud to celebrate the military mom. Through their love, strength and support, military moms provide the foundation for our military force. This week we want to share a few stories about how military moms have made a difference. Feel free to share your own story. Whether you are a mom of a military service member, a mom in a military family or an active duty military mom, we salute you! Share your story like this one from a Jacksonville Army Officer.
My mother consistently steps up to the plate to take care of my children whenever I am activated. May it be while I was on active duty stationed in Hawaii and had to go out to the field for 30 days or now that I am in the Army National Guard and am set to deploy. She has graciously agreed to relocate from Michigan to Florida to stay with my 6 year old daughter so that her life is a little less disrupted by the absence of her mother and her older brother who will also be leaving for his first year of college this year.
