About the Veteran’s Spouse Project
We Focus on the
Military Spouse Experience
In July 2015, Amy Uptgraft wrote and workshopped the theatre production, I Will Wait. The play impacted the military and civilian community and began a conversation about military spouses’ lives, their individual stories and journeys, and the support that was needed.
In 2017, Amy connected with two other military spouses; Lea Johnson and Wendy Caldwell. Together, they took Amy’s inspiration and desire to serve military spouses to the next level. A year later, in March 2018, Veteran’s Spouse Project was formed as a 501C3 organization.
Now, Veteran’s Spouse Project is dedicated to sharing the stories of generations of military spouses, uniting the military and civilian communities in friendship and understanding, and creating a beautiful space rooted in the values we hold dear.
VSP Exists to STRENGTHEN, NURTURE, and SUPPORT
All Military Spouses
VSP Gives Voice to the Experiences of Veterans' Spouses Across Generations by Providing Opportunities for Creativity and Healing Through the Arts While Helping to Bridge the Gaps Between Civilian and Military Communities
Veteran’s Spouse Project focuses on the military spouse experience to strengthen, nurture, and support active, Veteran, and retired military families.
Through theatre and creative arts workshops, storytelling, and the inspiring play, I Will Wait, we bring to life the happiness and hardships experienced by generations of military spouses and offer healing and support for the mental and emotional toll of unending uncertainties, struggles, and separations. Together, we find the joy, hope, and strength that come with military life.
VSP opens doors for non-military support by creating avenues to learn and grow together. We start conversations, build friendships, create connections, and offer actionable opportunities for families, friends, and communities to support military spouses.
Veteran’s Spouse Project is especially proud of the play, “I Will Wait,” and how it “pulls back the curtain” to share what military families experience with their non-military family, friends, and community.
