We are the wives of men who fought for freedom
We are the wives of men wounded in battle
We are the wives of men who will never be forgotten
We are the wives of men whose names are carved in our hearts
We are the wives of men who served our country

We are the wives of men who still fight for freedom
We are the wives of men who continue to battle
We are the wives of men who fight not to be forgotten
We are the wives of men who are mending their hearts
We are the wives of men who need their country to serve them

We are Vet Wives™

After I married I had few friends
The friendships I had seemed to come to an end
They couldn't understand the pain in my life
They couldn't help me through all the strife
They didn't want to talk about Vietnam and the horrors of war
They wanted things to go on as they had before
So they stopped coming around and they didn't even call
Brick by brick they put up a wall

I thought I'd be alone for the rest of my life
My husband and me - a lonely VetWife
But one day a miracle happened my way
I'll never forget that wonderful day
I found a new group of friends who were so dear
They've helped me to open up and face down my fear
They understand just what I'm going through
And if you're a VetWife they'll be there for you

These new friends of mine are each the wife of a vet
They keep me going each day - they're my safety net
You know who you are each and every one of you
Your friendship is loving and your friendship is true
We will all stand together in the battle we fight
We will all stand together and do what is right
We will reach out to others who are living our lives
We're strong and courageous we are VETWIVES™!

My In-Country

I waged a war of loneliness while he was far away for my In-Country was my country; my battle, every day. I knew no other friend, no wife, whose husband was at war - so Life went on around me, just as it had before. Christina 12-97

My husband Keith served with the 1/12th Cavalry Air Mobile during the Vietnam War. If you would like to read his story go to

Keith's Story & Pics

Keith is 100% Service Connected Disabled. He tries to keep himself busy. He loved to do woodworking and painting and traveling. His vision has worsened over the years so he's not doing the crafts so much any more but we still travel as often as possible. Here are some pictures of some of his craft work and his hobbies.
