A group of wives of Vietnam veterans started meeting at a restaurant in Lynchburg two-and-a-half years ago. Most of these women are caring for disabled husbands and the began meeting as a support group. Most of the husbands are combat veterans.
“We are there to encourage one another,” said Judy Doering, who coordinates the group.
The group grew and now meets at Lynchburg’s American Legion Post 16 on the fourth Thursday of each month.
