.Her work brings attention to the unique needs and sacrifices that the children of our military personnel endure for our country. As Mrs. Dougherty said, “One of my goals through the whole process was to bring awareness that our military personnel are no longer only attached to large bases, especially as the Guard and Reserve are being activated. They are in our communities, they are our neighbors, and their children take a different path in life. I feel like I was able to give them a voice. We can never forget the sacrifices they are making.”
