The American Widow Project is a peer to peer support network founded by Military Widows solely to benefit other Military Widows. The Widows support each other by sharing their experiences and coping strategies through events, newsletters, their website and informal peer to peer counseling. Bonded together by a single common experience the Widows often find that despite the significant help so many organizations supply, there are some things only another Widow can understand. The American Widows Project has also created a film, free to any Military Widow, to help them and the American People understand the Military Widow's experience, from the wedding to the knock on the door and on through the grieving process.
