I have been wondering recently why it is that people will sponsor care packages to soldiers but their family is typically forgotten. It is hard on the family (husbands or wives, sons and daughters) as well as the one who is deployed. I understand that the soldiers don’t have access to anything that the military doesn’t directly provide them with but in some cases neither do the families. In my experience I have seen women suffering trying to raise their family on their own while they feel forgotten in an unfamiliar place. I have also heard of women who are in their own country but are stranded on a base that they were stationed at before their spouse was deployed. I believe this is ridiculous. I know it is unlikely that anyone will contact me but I want to put this out there for anyone in need. If you are a military husband or wife please let me know so I can send you a care package, so that maybe you won’t feel so alone. There are people out there thinking about you, and thanking you, as well. I am going to try to start a movement for military spouses to receive packages as well.
Side Note: If there is already a program out there like this please let me know so I can try to help them out and if you know of any military spouses let me know as well.
