T*A*P*S (ALL Military related deaths/ Gold star Families)

With the increase in death of all manners in the Military, survivors need a place to come together and find comfort and people to relate to.

Some people say that when a military person dies, their entire family's life is changed drastically. Often forced to move off base, kids have to change schools and more all in under a year. 

It's vital to understand you are not alone and there is a "family" of those who have and are going through it with you.
