I have been involved on the periphery of the Fallen Warriors Foundation as a documentarian, studying the impact of Post Traumatic Stress and the healing modalities currently employed to help relieve PTSD sufferers from their symptoms. The work that Jack, Colleen and Claude have undertaken through the Fallen Warriors Foundation and through their annual retreats is simultaneously inspiring and down-to-earth. This is a strong organization with dedication, honor, and a deeply humanitarian mission.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

witnessing their work at the Fallen Warrior's retreat and feeling the peaceful impact that it had on the retreat's participants. Their work offers more than a quick-fix approach - it is a way of living in fuller consciousness.

The stories written and read aloud by the "fallen warriors" in attendance the two years I participated live in my heart forever. One year Claude Anshin Thomas, retreat leader, asked that each "write about something you've never spoken before," ~ the stories were heart shattering and the sharing was healing. The participants were lighter upon leaving. I served in the kitchen, hurrying with my work in order to witness this great process.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the safety created for people who sorely need it. Friendships and connections established during the retreats continue beyond the four days.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Exceptional! Almost all, including staff and volunteers, shared war trauma.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Take a deep breath and follow their larger vision. This organization has deep concern for the effects of PTSD on the children of "fallen warriors."

Ways to make it better...

the organization had been able to spend more money on the location of the retreat. Accommodations were pretty rustic (i.e. mold everywhere).

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Funding

One thing I'd also say is that...

Despite huge obstacles, Jack and Colleen persevere. And the need just grows and grows with ever more good people returning from combat with PTSD and emotional scars.

Helped in my understanding my personal PTSD problems and how to deal with these problems more effectively. I was more involved when I lived in Portland, Oregon. Now I live in So. California and am not as involved. This is a great organization, and needs others to understand its importance in the healing of war wounds among other things.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Emotional and spiritual healing as a result of my personal journey in 1995 back to Vietnam to face my personal "demons".

The comradeship, the closeness of the bonds of the veterans associated with Jack and Colleen and their organization.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

All wonderful!!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

It could do wonderful things for our veterans of all ages. It could do marvelous things for those veterans that helped the USA, in war-ravaged countries to heal their wounds both physically and mentally.
