“When one member joins, the whole family serves.” There is no statement more true for the mostly women and a few good men that we’ve met at the Military.com Spouse Summit in D.C. this week. This strong group of military spouses, caregivers and advocates are truly inspiring ---true heroes.  

As a husband/wife or parent of active military, juggling deployments, cross-country moves and, many times, children and grandchildren, it is safe to say these folks have taken on more than many of their peers. We recognize that being left behind to handle children, a job and a house is no easy task. Then, having the constant worry and stress of being separated from your family member, makes it a seemingly impossible task.

But, we know that tens of thousands of people are doing it every day and luckily, there are people who deeply care about making it not only possible, but a little easier, too.  We were extremely honored to meet many of those people and organizations at this summit. 

We think that we can certainly play an important role in this effort...that part of our work at The Home Depot Foundation is to make sure people don’t forget those who are currently serving, those who have served in the past, and the families that serve with them.  As we move forward from this event, we leave strengthened and empowered to continue to ensure that every veteran…and his/her family…has a safe place to call home.
