Motherhood in the Military

Motherhood in the Military

military mom support group at postpartum wellness

Today, as we observe Memorial Day and remember the people who have died while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces, let’s also honor the sacrifices of military mothers.

Motherhood in the military takes on various forms.

There are mothers with children in the military.

There are mothers actively serving in the military.

There are mothers with partners in the military.

“Being a military spouse isn’t easy, but it’s the most rewarding and honoring thing in the world to say that my husband is fighting to protect our family and country. Even though having your family separated is the hardest thing you can ever go through, we would do it all over again because we are so proud and thankful for all that they do!” — Babyblessing12

“A military mom is able to play both roles — mom and dad — while the active duty member is away and never forgets how to say ‘Welcome home.'” — jessika44

“I think one of the things that makes military moms special is their ability to adapt. Changes are constantly thrown at us, and we find a way to make it work. All families encounter things at some point or another, but military families encounter it almost weekly.” — BrandiLynnS

“Strength is what makes a military mom so special. We are the ones who stay home and wait — the ones who help, love, and miss day by day. It is the love that builds a military family but the strength that holds it together.” — Pookypoo87

“Our ‘military family’ is much more than just our immediate family. For us, it includes the entire squadron, which is something that people in the civilian workforce will probably never experience.” — m3twin

“Military families go through much more stress and uncertainty then the average family, but we accept the situation and do what must be done because we know it’s for the benefit of our country. It might not be easy or be the best timing for your family, but no one is stronger than a well-prepared, organized, and level-headed military household.” — Cocobeans13

“We are resilient, have a strong sense of community and volunteerism, and often perform random acts of kindness. We have a strong sense of responsibility and patriotism and are very proud of our service members. We look at the world as a whole because many of us have seen or lived outside of the U.S. and can appreciate what ‘home’ has to offer.” — soozq222

“We are the epitome of sacrifice and trust. We are the definition of endurance, unconditional love, and patience. We have learned to take things with a grain of salt to save our own sanity, and we put family above all else. We have faith beyond description and have a close bond to other military families we have never even met. You will never understand what it’s like to be a military family unless you personally experience it. ‘Home’ is wherever you are for that moment and ‘family’ is whoever you meet at every new duty station. It is hard, but it is rewarding, and the sense of pride is unmatched.” — babybaboon
