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.

This has been the closest connection I have ever felt with military spouses. I had previously felt a disconnect, like being on the outside looking in. I felt my experience was unique and that my struggles were mine alone. Now I have friends that I look forward to seeing weekly and know I could call on at any time. I feel l have something to give to the group and much to gain from the group. I have come to truly appreciate these women and am extremely grateful for our time together.
I learned that there is a large & supportive spouse community here on the Cape. That I am not alone in trying to meet people and make friends.
Family is important, but we need to care for ourselves as well. Sharing life experiences with others who get it was refreshing.
It was great to be surrounded by other military spouses and learn a little about this beautiful place we have the opportunity to live in for a few years! I was able to connect with other women being in a similar situation to myself!
I loved the relaxed feel of the event. Wouldn’t change anything.
Met new friends and a beautiful view! It was perfect!
I related most to the other military spouses and the parallels in their lives and mine.
It’s wonderful getting to share and meet new spouses. Always a safe place to share and support each other.
As we revisit the book GRACE TRAIL, it reminds me of the importance of being reflective and finding time to refuel myself so that I can give to others. Remembering to use what I have learned was my biggest take away today. Setting goals or intentions for the week ahead helps me move forward.
Good way to connect with ladies who have similar experiences.
