A few good women : a military wife's sacrifice
American culture, as a whole, has strived to honor the sacrifices made by our military personnel. The sacrifice of military spouses, however, has been largely overlooked throughout our history. I think it is important for those sacrifices to be appreciated, so I interviewed three military wives about their lives and created a presentation to inform a high-school aged audience about their sacrifices. In addition to informing my audience about sacrifices made by military wives, I also led the group in a service project in which we created thank you notes for military spouses of current military personnel. This artist's statement describes the interviews I conducted, the presentation I created and the subsequent service project I completed with my audience.
