I used to be a Navy brat. I always hated it when he gets deployed but that is part of military life. When I was in the Air Force, I was lucky enough not to be deployed (pre 9/11).
There are a lot of Military families waiting for their loved ones deployed overseas and I want to support them. Today, our featured organization is the National Military Family Association.
This is their mission (according to their website).
The National Military Family Association (NMFA) was organized in 1969 as the National Military Wives Association by a group of wives and widows seeking financial security for survivors of uniformed service personnel and retirees. From their efforts, the Survivor Benefit Plan came into being. In the ensuing years, NMFA has been in the vanguard of advocacy for improvements in the quality of military family life. The name of the organization was changed in 1984 to reflect the broad scope of its involvement. NMFA is a non-profit 501(c)(3) association.
