Reel Wives | Midland, TX

Since 2007, Reel Wives has been hosting three-day respite weekends for the spouses of active duty soldiers and combat veterans. It is a time designed to help the wives develop new friendships and enjoy three days of rest, relaxation and fun. Reel Wives is the sister project of Reel Thanx, a fishing getaway for injured soldiers. More than half of the injured soldiers participating in Reel Thanx are married, and the organization recognized that those caretaker-spouses deserved recognition for their service as well. Reel Wives grew out of that need, and has developed into a very special women’s ministry..

Thanking Our Wives

The purpose of Reel Wives is to provide a support system and to give thanks to the military wives of our heroes who have participated in our Reel Thanx program. Our organization honors these women by flying them in for an all-expense paid trip to Midland, Texas. Our team hosts two trips a year; one in the Spring and one in the Fall. Our trips are filled with many different activities including dinners, shopping, and pampering. What we’re most proud of is the support system we offer these women; we want them to know that once they are a part of the Reel Wives family, they will always have someone to turn to, no matter what. This is just our small and humble way of saying “thank you” for all they have sacrificed.
