Marcella Stretch is the founder of Parents of Deployed Service members Facebook Support Group also known as PODS. She is a military mom of 2 Veterans and has experienced the deployment of one son in 2009-2010 to Iraq. As things stand now, she expects to experience another deployment next year to Afghanistan with her other son.
PODS provides support to other Parents going thru the uncertainty of deployment by sharing information that would make their experience a little smoother. The group is comprised of military parents of deployed service members dealing with first, second or even third deployments. This group was created on Facebook September 26, 2009 and has grown to over 1,000 members.
This group is open to all parents, grandparents, god-parents, step-parents, mothers/fathers-in-law, and surrogate parents of deployed service-members of ALL branches of service.
They not only support our troops by sending them care packages and birthday cards, they are also a strong support to each other.
