Supporting Military Caregivers By Establishing Hidden Heroes Cities
6 Apr 2021
MIDDLETOWN, Ohio — There are 5.5 Million military caregivers across the United States who are challenged to take care of the health needs of family and loved ones who served.
So to increase the amount of support and awareness, communities across the country are pledging to become Hidden Heroes Cities by way of the Elizabeth Dole Foundation.
Middletown is the 161st city to join the campaign aimed at creating support and awareness for caregiving families.
A great example of the dedication and unconditional love showed by a military caregiving family can be found in Middletown.
Dr. Geri Lynn Maples cares for her husband of 30 years, retired Army National Guardsman Robert Maples, who suffered a traumatic brain injury while in service. The injury has impacted his health since returning home to the U.S.
