They Also Serve

She kisses little Katie's forehead as she turns out the light.
The night ahead in a lonely bed, she's a Military Wife.
She pushes back a tear, then sinks into a chair.
Her mind says that's the way it is, her heart says it ain't fair.
She knows the price of sacrifice, but she's proud to take her place
in that unsung corps of warriors that stay behind and wait.

They also serve, those who stand and wait.
Praying by the phone to learn their loved ones fate.
But they're still in the war, let there be no mistake.
They also serve, those who stand and wait.

Jake climbs on a school bus, marches bravely to his seat,
His dad's not home to say so long like his friends along the street.
He has to be the man at home, as long as daddy's gone,
He promised him the day he left, that he'd be brave and strong.
So he tells his little sister, don't you worry Daddy's coming home.
He's 8 years old, he's a Soldier's son, and he can hold his own!

They also serve those who stand and wait.
Praying by the phone to learn their loved ones fate.
But they're still in the war, let there be no mistake.

Mothers and fathers
Daughters and sons
They don't wear a uniform or carry a gun
But they're still in the war

I just watched you all on MilSpouseFest. Do you all have anything in your tool box that would provide reading assistance for Dyslexic High Schooler? Secondly, our 12th grader who reads at a 3rd grade reading level due to never being taught the Science of Reading is prepping for college. Do you know of help for college based on these circumstances?
Victims must speakup in our military, no matter the consequences! House Armed Services Committee Democrats House Armed Services Committee Republicans is finally listening. Our military branches must comply and immediately STOP empowering, enabling, promoting the abusive Servicemembers!

Hello everyone. I am looking for help. My husband, Ret Major in AF,

passed away 2 years ago. I receive Survivors Benefit every month. Several months back I saw an increase in my income. When I went to file taxes, before covid virus, my tax preparer said I owe all the back taxes that were not taken out. That I currently owe $500.00! Is there anyone here who can point me in the right direction for answers? Since the virus, tax filing has been extended. Thank you very much.
Honoring your service and sacrifice year round, but especially this month! MOAA Spouse
So honored to be on a panel hosted by Militarytimes.com at Annual meeting with wonderful colleagues! MOAA Spouse Blue Star Families National Military Family Association
