Every other month, spouses of individuals who are serving or have served our country gather for a variety of activities followed by dining out together. Activities have included painting, trail walking, yoga, and meditation. This bonding creates a community of support for those married to veteran/military men and women.
Heroes In Transition (HIT) also offers a virtual Saturday morning Coffee Chat & Book Club. Held nearly every Saturday at 9 am, this virtual event started as a result of the pandemic and has continued ever since. The virtual chats are full of laughs, compassion, and trust, adding another layer of support to HIT’s work.

I am just so happy that this group exists and allows women and families to make connections. There were so many coastie wives there! It’s super rare so it was nice to be around those who are in the same situation as me! Keep the events coming! 🙂
It was wonderful feeling NOT alone. Just being able to explain my feelings related to myself and to my spouse’s military experiences.
I relate to both the struggles and the commitment to being a military spouse through difficult times and challenging circumstances. I also relate to the humor we share about how to be the spouse we want to be while also meeting our own needs as an individual. The importance of family always shines through our conversation.
I appreciated being in a place of belonging. A safe space to be me. It was a wonderful day out with new friends.
Family is important, but we need to care for ourselves as well. Sharing life experiences with others who get it was refreshing.
I loved learning how to paddle board and loved meeting new women. It was definitely a space open for sharing.
I loved getting together with old friends and making new connections! I felt like we all had a connection and know what is feels like to move a lot and be away from family.
It was a lot of fun and a safe space to fail! Very peaceful.
It’s wonderful getting to share and meet new spouses. Always a safe place to share and support each other.
This had a good sense of community, and I could relate to the demands other spouses felt from military life.
