It fills in the gap where military life ends, and a new normal begins. A military widow/widower means being misunderstood by friends and family; we are often left behind and forgotten. SSSG seeks to promote healing and strength by reaching out to widows/widowers of spouses who died serving our Nation. SSSG is designed for the younger generation of military Surviving Spouse, and significant other, for every branch of the Armed Forces, including the National Guard and Coast Guard.

We are unique. The Surviving Spouse Support Group is managed by the only other people who truly understand a military loss – other Surviving Spouses. SSSG was founded by widows and designed to provide the support and guidance needed for today’s new generation of military Surviving Spouse. We let NO widow/er fall through the cracks.

SSSG Mission Statement

Our mission is to educate military Surviving Spouses (significant others) about resources and programs available, to support widow/ers emotionally by listening and sharing a pain that few others understand, and network with other pro-military organizations along with hosting local SSSG gatherings (social and informational) to mingle with other Surviving Spouses.Surviving Spouse Support Group logo
