This meeting is open to all women who have served or are currently serving in the National Guard or Reserves.
I want to also thank Stephanie for opening her home to us. I'm very grateful. I also want to thank Arlene for getting us all together! She doesn't think she really does enough (or much) for us, but I think this was a big deal for us. So, Arlene, thank you from the bottom of my heart
I haven't felt that exhilarated in a while.
> I just want to thank you for all your hard work and getting us together.
> Your tireless work is part of my healing process.
I had such an amazing time yesterday How wonderful to have met you ALL
Hope to see you beautiful women very soon!
I don't know how anyone else felt or still might feel but I found it a true blessing. As I sat there and really listened to the other women veterans stories you realize that you are not alone and that you are not the only one that has faced or continues to face challenges.
I feel that by coming together that we can find strength from each other and a true support system so that each of us as we move forward in our lives and the many challenges that come along as well will have someone that we can turn to, even if it is just a simple "I understand, for we will know that they really do understand because they have been there and done that or had "that" done to them and they can relate"
Sorry, civilian people (usually spouses of veterans) do not understand why veterans go and sit at the American Legion or the VFW club rooms. It is because you can sit on a bar stool next to a fellow vet and you don't have to utter a single word but you know they get it and you know that should the need arise they would have you back !
For the most part......We all came in as strangers yesterday afternoon however we were able to share some pretty personal "stuff" with each other cause we knew we were "amoung comrades" and that we were safe there and by the end we were all hugging !
Ladies I had a blast yesterday! I don't get a chance to have time out much with my school schedule and homework load, so yesterday was a treat. Stephanie, thank you so much for opening up your home to us. Arlene, I echo Stephanie's sentiments when I say thank you for being our catalyst.
I know Kate said she would be willing to host in April and if no one objects I would like to host in May.
I look forward to seeing all of you soon,

Words from a Veteran -
Not a day goes by that I dont remember Sergeant Winters. 10 years later, and I still tell your story.
I can remember Operation Seahorse Wind, August 2011, right before 9/11, how you taught me more about my job than I learned in school, how you would refuse to fall out of runs, and how you snuck out in town and brought back a kegs-worth of beer to thank us for a job well done at the end of the op.
I remember just before Christmas in Pakistan, when you and the rest of the Raider team landed to relieve us so that we could spend the holidays with our family.
I remember when they called us into formation to announce the news of the crash and your passing. I remember how I cried from the depths of my soul like I had never cried before.
I remember you, and will never forget.
