South Stafford, VA
(Fredericksburg, Stafford, Spotyslvania)
VaMoms Support/Virginia Military Families Gathering for Support began in October of 2007 with 4 Marine Moms and one Air Force Mom desiring camradaire. Our hope was to offer support to one another while we were supporting our sons and daughters serving in the military.
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 serving or you are the spouse of a Marine or soldier serving in one of the Armed Forces: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard or National Guard, you are most welcome.
We also support Silver Star Families of America for our Wounded Warriors. One of our members helps to present the Silver Star Flags to Combat wounded/ill. And, we help MarineMoms-Bethesda to serve meals to our Wounded at the National Naval Hospital.
