When I started Humans on the Homefront in May 2016, I did it with one goal in mind: To share the stories of our men and women in uniform, and the people who love them.
In the last year and a half, we have told and shared hundreds of stories. We’ve seen through the eyes of a child what it’s like to lose a dad, through the eyes of wives what it’s like to lose a spouse, and through the eyes of parents what it’s like to lose a child.
We’ve talked to veterans who fought their battles decades ago, and a military spouse fighting for her life at home.
We’ve interviewed helicopter pilots who have survived crashes, we’ve highlighted military spouses who have conquered deployments and job searches and instability and moves, and so many truly remarkable things. And let’s not forget the milspouse who dressed up like a t-rex to pick her husband up from homecoming... homecoming dress stores
The stories, while all unique, have a common thread: They have been nothing shy of incredible - because that’s what our military families are.
Together, we’ve been able to help raise over $100,000 for military families in need. We were able to showcase over 100 veteran and military spouse owned businesses in our holiday gift giving guide. We’ve shared stories, laughs, and plenty of tears. I am so, so proud of what our little community has done, together.
And now I need your help. As Facebook keeps changing their algorithms, our little corner of the internet is getting smaller and smaller as fewer and fewer people see our posts.
I’ve been nominated for Military Spouse of the Year, and the incredible MSOY platform would allow your - our - stories to be heard by so many more people. If you enjoy HotH, please click the link below to vote, and vote every day that it’s open (until Friday).
Thank you sweet readers. It’s an honor telling your stories. ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️
