A Woman, A Veteran, A Mother
There are a lot of sacrifices that are made when one chooses to serve their country, especially when they hold the title of “mom.” They are not only risking their lives for their children, but they could potentially miss out on some of life’s most precious moments. These women veterans have shown us that no matter what obstacles they had to overcome, nothing would keep them from getting back to their most important job of being a mother.
Once Jessica and Gina returned home from military service, they found they really needed support and were happy to find Heroes on the Water, where they participated in therapeutic kayak fishing programs with their children as well as with other heroes who have gone through similar experiences. As every parent knows, you have to support your family by helping yourself first!
