“Service Family Strong”

“I wish we had the tools we needed to overcome the obstacles of service life much earlier. We could have healed, and helped each other heal, faster which would have given us more joy in the years we were given.”

Taya Kyle

A friend of Taya’s once said, “Taya, you will have friends who will side with you no matter what. I will be better than that, I will be a friend to your marriage and that is the very best friend anyone can have.”

“ We feel like we’re a part of a group who really wants us to succeed and has given us the tools to do so. ”
