Share Your Words of Encouragement

Military and veteran caregivers are the frontline medical workers caring for our nation’s wounded, ill, and injured warriors.

These caregivers have no training but are drafted to serve when their service member comes home.

The average military or veteran caregiver spends 20-30 hours per week caring for their wounded warrior. The isolation, stress, and strain can be overwhelming. But still, they forge on, proudly serving those who have defended our country.

Please join us in recognizing these military and veteran caregivers for their incredible service to our country.

Leave a few words of encouragement for these hidden heroes so they know you stand with them.

Messages for Caregivers

"I don't know all that you, or the military member you care for, are facing, but I do know that a loving heart gives security, purpose, and hope to those it sacrifices for. You not only give that to each other, but also to all of us that live in the land of the FREE and the home of the BRAVE!!"
