In the event your soldier is wounded and recovering, families can use the CaringBridge website to communicate with people by giving updates and other information.
CaringBridge is a free, nonprofit web service that connects family and friends to share information, love and support during a serious health event, care and recovery. It takes just a few moments to create a personal and private CaringBridge website.
I learned about CaringBridge through some dear friends that are keeping track of a fellow soldier. He was seriously injured, along with seven other members of his unit, when an improvised explosive device (IED) was set off in Afghanistan last year.
CaringBridge provides a way to simplify updates to family and friends through journal entries. This helps to reduce the stress of multiple conversations. Visitors to your site can leave messages of love and support in the guestbook. Our soldier friend, who is still recovering, has already received 3,000 loving and supportive messages. It really makes a difference to the person who is recovering and the family.
With CaringBridge, you can build a Web site easily and quickly. It is free and available anytime you need it.
I hope you never need to use this Web site. If you do, please let us know so we can support you through your soldier’s recovery.
