Welcome to Her War, Her Voice!
Whether walking down a street, through an airport, or across a parade field, a military uniform signifies service. War. Strength. Pride. And sacrifice. We all know that uniform embodies courage and valor. But what of those who wear no uniform? What of those on the battlefield here at home?
Those in uniform train to fight, survive, and emerge victorious. They spend months learning to combat their enemy and how to evade danger. We, their families, have no training. No way to ensure that we are even surviving. We have no way to identify the enemy. And we have no way to quantify our victory. Still, we rise.*
