Virginia Military Families Gathering for Support began in September 2007 with 4 Marine Moms and one Air Force Mom looking for support. We decided to meet once a month at a centrally located Fredericksburg restaurant to enjoy a meal together.
The support has been wonderful. We share stories, ask questions, laugh a lot and sometimes even shed a few tears. It's a gathering to just let your guard down knowing you are among those who understand.
If you live in or around the greater Fredericksburg area and have a son/daughter or you are the spouse of a soldier serving in one of the Armed Forces: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard or National Guard, you are most welcome!

2nd Thursday/Friday (alternating) each month. Contact VaMilitaryFamilies@gmail for more information
