Military Survivors

Each manner of death brings with it a unique set of challenges and working through loss can also include a need to acknowledge some of these aspects. The third Monday of each month is reserved for members of the TAPS family to connect around some of the ways that the cause of death changes and complicates the grieving process. Participants will self-select a sharing group, and each will be guided with care, compassion, and clear boundaries. Join us for this special forum where you can connect and talk with others who have experienced the loss of a loved one from illness, sudden or anticipated. All relationships are welcome for this time of sharing and connection.

What to Expect

Online groups are peer-led, facilitated sessions where there’s never pressure to share, but always an opportunity. Whether you attend once or regularly, you will always be welcomed. We value the importance of knowing that there are “places” we can show up and feel supported and inspired, and you can decide to connect with us every week or whenever it’s convenient or compelling.  

Please remember that, while we anticipate that these groups will become engaging, encouraging community gathering “places,” you never have to wait if you need to talk. We’re always here for you, 24 hours, 7 days a week, year-round, at 800-959-TAPS (8277).
