We always say their names.
We love these mothers and their families with all of our hearts.
As Michele traveled the country she started meeting mothers that lost their sons and daughters to suicide.
After meeting 5 of the mothers, Michele formed a Facebook group and named it Mothers of Veteran Suicide. This is a very private group for the mothers to speak amongst each other to share their grief and memories. Every mothers is so grateful for this group. As the couple travels the country they seek to meet every mother in the group.
Michele sits with them quietly in the RV and simply listens and comforts. Michele loves every single mother and all of their family members and hopes to bring them a little joy to let them know they are not alone.
As a special program, we send a care package resources and comfort to each mother when we are funded.
Our newest initiative is to help with funeral costs as these families did not expect the expense and are having to take second mortgages and loans to pay for unexpected funeral costs.
If you would like to donate, please put in the description "For a MOVS gift" and 100% will go to this initiative.
A Message from MOVS
Mothers of Veteran Suicide
They are mothers of the brave men and women who have served our country. Their children won the war but not the battle, and they died by suicide. These mothers do not want anything from the government but want recognition that their child served and died for our country.
"As mothers, we mourn for our children. We are a group that supports, loves and encourages each other. We share our thoughts and feelings, share positive thoughts and uplift each other. None of us wants to be part of this group or family but we do all we can to go on."
If you know a mother or are a mother that lost a son or daughter that was an active duty service member or veteran, please we urge you to join this group.
National Veteran Resources wants to honor them and help the world remember their children as the heroes they were. Our mission in life is to save as many as we can.
