    Do these sites hold for widows of veterans or are there more locations for them? Have a Lady who is just starting down the path and she could use some help.
    Would appreciate any guidance.
    SEMPER FI !!

    Military Widow: A Survival Guide by Joanne M. Steen and M. Regina Asaro Mission: To blend the personal experience of military widowhood with the professional knowledge of grief and traumatic loss, and translate over ten years of collective lessons learned from military widows into a survival guide for the new military widow. This soon-to-be-published survival guide for widows of service personnel, a first-of-its-kind, tackles the unique and complex issues arising from the death of a spouse in the military. It speaks to loss in each of the service branches, across the span of rank and rates, and offers invaluable insights and practical strategies for dealing with this life-altering tragedy. The authors expertly blend personal experience with guidance from leading experts on grief and traumatic loss, and translate over ten years of lessons learned into an effective guide. Short, easy-to-read chapters provide realistic profiles of widows and their responses to loss and the complications generated in the unique world of the military, as well as insight on how to make difficult decisions and cope with everyday situations. Although written primarily for the widow, this book will also prove useful to other family members, friends, and military professionals. Joanne Steen, MS, NCC, is the widow of a naval aviator who was killed in the line of duty. A Rutgers engineer, Joanne has twenty years of engineering experience in the corporate and military sectors. The sudden and traumatic death of her husband was personally and professionally life changing for her. Six years after her husbands death, Joanne returned to graduate school and received a master of science degree in counseling, with an emphasis in sudden death and traumatic grief. Now a nationally certified counselor, Joanne is also a certified strategic planner, crisis responder, instructor, and speaker on military loss. For her work with the Department of the Navy, Joanne was awarded the Meritorious Civilian Service Medal. M. Regina Asaro, MS, RN, CT completed her nursing education over the course of eleven moves as a military wife. In 2003, she received her certification in Thanatology: Death, Dying, and Bereavement. Regina has worked in-patient psychiatry at the National Institutes of Health and at Gorgas Army Hospital in Panama. She also served as director of crime victim assistance programs for victims of sexual assault and families of murder victims. As a crisis responder, Regina has worked on teams that responded to the bombing in Oklahoma City, the crash of Flight KAL801 on Guam, and in Tuzla, Bosnia, following the massacre of civilians in Srebrenica. She has presented many workshops on the impact of violent crime, grief, and traumatic loss.
