The Battlin’ Betties are a group of dedicated of ladies who serve our nation’s military, veterans, first responders and their families within each platoon’s community.
The mission of our organization is to honor and serve our nation’s military, veterans, first responders and their families by supporting and creating unique programs and events that will inspire our nation, foster patriotism, and raise awareness of post-traumatic stress and suicide prevention.
By dressing in 1940s and 1950s fashion we aspire to bring back patriotism our country fostered during that era. We’re more than just “a pretty face”. We are hard working spouses, veterans, first responders, caregivers and patriots with a passion to see that our nation’s heroes are always honored and remembered.
Programs that we support in our organization include community outreach, PTSD and suicide awareness, retreat travel sponsorship, and ‘Mended Hearts’, a caregivers support program. From throwing birthday parties for our heroes, taking them homemade treats and gifts, hosting fundraisers or special events, to scrubbing headstones and laying wreaths, our volunteers go above and beyond to give back to our nation’s heroes and their families. Our members are not just volunteers. We have created a lifelong bond with each other; we are friends and sisters. We are able to call upon each other when we are in need of help in our personal life, as a caregiver or even as individuals, enduring the struggles of PTSD or suicide, obstacles of being a caregiver and also be the biggest supporter a friend would need. We can depend that someone will be there to listen.
Many members of the Battlin' Betties understand the effects of PTSD and the personal sacrifices of our service members, first responders and their families, as well as the strength and courage it requires. Our loved ones, spouses and friends, experience the chaos it can leave behind. So we have attended educational courses to become advocates and peer mentors. By doing this, we can spread awareness and help educate others of the signs and who to contact for professional advice through one of our partner resources.
While our mission is has a serious tone, we strive to bring happiness and honor to our valiant heroes, law enforcement officers, firefighters, first responder personnel, military and veterans with a touch of class. At Battlin’ Betties we aspire to make sure that all patriots are honored, appreciated and given the acknowledgement that is deserved.
We would love to partner with your organization or business to further spread support to our brave men and women. For inquiries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
