Army Wives Strip to Combat Suicides

Clean Rating: Safe for work.

Ashley Wise posted a picture of her naked back on Facebook, invited other military wives to share images of themselves, and the organization Battling Bare was born. "Our initial intent was to take Facebook by storm," says Wise. She says, at heart, she simply wanted families to be able to enjoy normal things together like "eating at Chuck E. Cheese's or going to the fireworks." When she spoke to other women and "realized how big the problem is, we knew we had to do something." Now, just two months later, Wise is working with seven other military wives to launch a non-profit organization to raise awareness about PTSD and the impact it has on spouses and children. In three years, they aim to have a chapter in every state in place to support military families and hold workshops based on a model developed by Operation Restored Warrior.

    As an army vet, W. Germany, early 60's, non-combat, it is hard not to be critical of what this stunt does for the tragic suicide rates. Attention getting? Yes, to a point. We must recall that a tiny fraction of one percent of American adults are in uniform, active and reserve.

    Maybe they should raise awareness in a more perfesional way sure naked backs are appealing but I'm sure some of the husbands wouldent want their wife's flaunting it to support then in fact if that was my wife I would would start asking some serious questions

    Ladies(?)put your clothes on.You are getting nowhere because very few people are taking you seriously. Maybe band together and address Congress or the VA or some other entity that can actually help your cause. You are pathetic and have my sympathy.
