When a soldier is killed in the line of duty, the loved ones left behind often have a difficult time coping and finding a place to escape from the grief. The upcoming Army’s Army event not only gives military husbands and wives an opportunity to strengthen their mind, body and spirit through physical fitness but build lasting relationships with other surviving families who have also experienced a similar loss.
“We’re excited to be a partnering with the Army’s Army to host such a wonderful event for spouses of fallen soldiers,” commented Bill Libby, President of The Spa Fitness and Wellness Center at Bordeaux. “This is a great opportunity for us to not only show our support for Gold Star Wives but also give back to the military families right here in our community.”
