The Love Letter Campaign

 

Please share and help us tell the Love Stories of heroes and families (like us!) who are building lives together with the visible and invisible injuries of war in their midst!

Today, on Veteran’s Day (and ending on Valentine’s Day), Family of a Vet is launching The Love Letter Campaign… a campaign to encourage those who love a hero to write a letter sharing their story (where they started, what they’ve faced together, and why their love endures). It’s not just for spouses, but also for parents, siblings, caregivers, and friends. It’s about telling the “rest” of our stories… stories that continue despite PTSD, TBI, and the challenges of life after combat.

Here’s the main page for the campaign: http://www.familyofavet.com/love_letters.html where you can read more about the project and submit your own letter.  Please share your story with Family of a Vet and share this post to help us spread the word
My letter to Sean is here Being Loved By You.
