Local Non-Profit To Honor Military Wife With Annual Award

We all know how hard it is to be overseas serving our country and being away from your family, but we rarely hear about how hard it is for those who are left behind.

Wives of active duty military members are frequently left behind to single-handedly handle the trails, tribulations and victories going on back home while their husbands were off fighting for our freedom. The sacrifices and life commitment these women make are often overlooked and not recognized as they should be.
