Thousands of families across Arkansas and the region have benefited from Mrs. Jody Bergstrom’s work… but who is she and why is she having such in impact in our region?
Serving as a military family living in Northwest Arkansas has been challenging, but also very rewarding. At the time, her husband Sergeant First Class Bergstrom was deployed to Afghanistan. While going through numerous mobilizations/deployments, Jody was approached with the question, “If you could change the world for our military personnel what would you do?” Her immediate response was to take care of the families left at home all across America. And as such, Camp Alliance was created.
Fulfilling the demands generated by serving so many is the welcomed challenge Jody tackles every day. She spends her time engaging military, civic and business leaders in order to find ways to improve the direct and indirect support to military units, members and families. The last four years have laid the foundation for what is to come as Camp Alliance continues to provide increasing support throughout Arkansas, the region and the nation. Camp Alliance is proudly supporting those who serve and protect our freedoms with the belief Americans deserve to live safely.
Jody explains why she is so devoted to the Camp Alliance mission,
“I know I am making a difference in people’s lives all the time. So often I hear from military families appreciating the direct impact Camp Alliance is having on their family, their unit and their service. But at the same time I hear from business leaders about how they appreciate the fact Camp Alliance is able to incorporate their support directly to military units and families.” Bringing about the fundamental change in what support looks like for our Guard and Reserve forces is a monumental task that Camp Alliance has taken on.
