Joining Forces is excited to announce that this Sunday, the Feherty’s Troops First Foundation will be hosting Operation Warrior Call to encourage all service members to pick up the phone and reconnect with their fellow “battle buddies.” A conversation with a trusted friend can go a long in supporting the wellness of our military service members and veterans.
With deployments, changing of duty stations, and the demands of everyday life, it can be difficult to keep in touch with fellow service members. Having gone through several deployments myself, I know firsthand that maintaining relationships is not an easy task. But checking in on each other from time to time, can go a long way in strengthening the wellness of our military communities. Having endured similar situations, those friends understand the stresses and difficulties that accompany military life better than anyone.
On behalf of the First Lady and Dr. Biden, I would like to encourage all military service members and veterans to take a moment and reconnect with their “battle buddies.” A simple phone call could make a huge impact in someone’s life. For that reason, Operation Warrior Call is asking service members and veterans to follow three simple steps: make the call, answer the call, and be honest. This Sunday, I’ll be doing just that.
Col. Rich Morales is the Executive Director of Joining Forces
