It’s often said that “freedom isn’t free,” and for the families of military personnel killed during service, that’s especially true.
Ten years ago this month, U.S. Army Major Larry Bauguess was killed during a peace-keeping mission in Pakistan in a tragedy that made national headlines. He left behind a grieving wife, Wesley Bauguess, and two daughters, ages six and four, who wouldn’t grow up with their daddy.
Wesley Bauguess is this week’s guest on a special Memorial Day edition of Off The Grid Radio, as she shares with us how she found purpose and hope after her husband’s death. She recently released a book, “God, Country, Golf: Reflections of an Army Widow” (Westbow Press).
Wesley tells us:
- What she hopes Americans and military personnel will learn about grieving and recovery from hearing her story.
- Why she chose to revisit the tragedy, first by writing a book and then by doing interviews.
- What people should (and shouldn’t) say to someone who is grieving.
- What helped her recover from her husband’s death.
Finally, Wesley gives us tips for how military families who have loved ones overseas can better handle being separated.
We were inspired by her story … and we think you will be, too.
