You Are Not Alone - Reach Out - Join Our Community
Loving My Veteran provides support, education and advocacy for Veterans and their families.
We believe that the key to building a happy, healthy, loving relationship comes from the ability to see things from each other’s perspective. We empower veterans' families by teaching them how to communicate effectively and supporting them while they navigate the challenges of veteran mental health and physical health while staying healthy as a family doing so.
We aim to fill the gap of support that is contributing to the alarming numbers of struggles that veterans and their loved ones are battling daily.
Loving My Veteran
Filling The Gap
What You Need to Know
Empowering Families To Build
Healthier, Happier Relationships
You cannot be good for anyone else if you are not good for yourself first.
We need to make time for self care. It is not selfish, it is self preservation.
What do you do to take care of yourself?
The Loving My Veteran community is diverse, inclusive and as varied as the veterans who served. Loving My Veteran is more than a support group, we are a community that welcomes veterans and their families from all eras and branches of service. Spouses, loved ones and family members range from those who just started dating, those who have been married for over 20 years and everything in between.
Spouse & Family
Being a loved one or a family member of a Veteran can be challenging. The journey can be difficult to navigate. Families often find themselves alone with limited or no support, leaving them feeling anger, depression, anxiety and resentment. Loving My Veteran is committed to change that by giving you the tools you need to help you along the way. We support you along your journey so that you don’t have to walk this path alone.
Loving My Veteran is committed to providing Veterans and their families with the tools and education to build healthy, happy, loving relationships. This includes a daily video series, Walking In My Shoes, where Stacy DeMouth shares her experiences and helps Veterans and families see things from each other’s perspective. We offer numerous classes that cover communication, managing PTSD, understanding how PTSD and TBIs are physical injuries to the brain, and our acclaimed Boot Camp that helps get you started on your journey.
knowledge is power
Loving My Veteran is committed to provide both Veterans and their families with information and resources that may make this journey a little easier. This includes Burn Pit Exposure, Mefloquine Toxicity, Anthrax Vaccine, the truth behind PTSD, deficiencies within the VA and many more. We provide information to alternative treatment options as well. Loving My Veteran believes that the best way to make a decision is to make an informed decision and we encourage all veterans and their families to look at all the options to make a decision that is best for them.
