In 2020 over 3,620 active duty and military spouses became victims of domestic abuse/intimate partner violence/sexual assault. 15 or those women lost their lives...This is an unnecessary trauma that the current policies and resources fail to prevent.
Founded by Veteran Spouses and Daughters, We strive to create a military culture without domestic violence/intimate partner violence through education and advocacy; empowering military families and ensuring their safety at home. Operation Foxhole will carry out this mission by facilitating a compassionate, nonjudgmental conversation that represents victims/survivors of military domestic violence, intimate partner violence, and sexual trauma; challenge current systems and policies in order to build cohesive military leadership; work in synergy with military and community advocates, policymakers, and others to promote social change, and educate military members and their families everywhere about the vital importance of respect and healthy relationships.
As of 2019, there have been 40,000 reported cases of domestic violence reported in our military. Not only has researched over the past decade documenting the emotional and behavioral consequences for children who witness domestic violence. This is why Operation Foxhole has teamed up with the Magical Order of Brave Knights
Sir William and his friends understand the effects of fears, separation anxiety, sleep deprivation, and nightmares of military children. The Magical Order of Brave Knights was created by Psychologist, Colleen Marchi with the intent to help develop strategies to conquer separation anxiety and nighttime fears and replace it with happiness and blissful sleep. Our Brave Knights offer your child friendship, devotion, love, and guardianship all through the night.
Operation Foxhole is asking each of you to consider donating a Brave Knight to a military child in need. Your sponsorship of $40 will provide each child a Sir William bear, Flashlight, Storybook, Blanket, and coloring pages.
Any support you can offer to get this life-saving information out to our soldiers and their families would be greatly appreciated.
