We are one of the military families that were sponsored to this event. We are one of the families that belong to the same base section that has suffered the six suicides. (Yes, it is a specific field that has these horrific rates.) Although not all were due to marital difficulties, we can speak to how important events like these are to reconnect, reground, and revitalize hope; all that gets strained through the years. We knew some of the victims, and their lives weren’t so different than ours in many ways. Can’t say thank you enough for the sponsorship. Military wife, Married 11 years
