Would you go bare to send a message? A group of military wives are baring their bodies and having pledges written on them to raise awareness for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
The idea came when Kentucky military wife, Ashley Wise, tried to seek help for her husband at Fort Campbell. After not receiving the help she needed, she formed "Battling Bare".
"I felt like streaking the general's lawn, because then maybe a naked woman would get attention and they wouldn't sweep me underneath the rug," Wise said. "I decided to instead do a photo campaign and it's what I call a God moment -- pledge, picture and ten minutes later it was on Facebook."
As she started the campaign, Wise realized she wasn't alone. Other military wives were also trying to find help for their husbands who were suffering in silence. Alicia McCoy was one such wife. Her husband, Sergeant Brandon McCoy, committed suicide in March.
"Our soliders have a lot to say," McCoy said. "They have a lot bottled up inside of them and no one is listening. I feel like they are afraid to be able to say what they need to say, because it will hurt their record."
Every photo taken is then posted on the group's website and Facebook page.
