I am a veteran myself, a former Army Nurse. I served, stateside, during the Vietnam War. I have for years been concerned about how we serve our veterans, especially those whose minds and spiritual well-being have been damaged by their service in the military. The first time I visited Baltimore Station, I was stunned to learn that more than 90% of the addicted men they serve are veterans. I thought it was an indictment of the VA (that they were failing to help). But then came the remarkable epiphany: I saw that this statistic says something strongly positive about the excellent approach at Baltimore Station, and about their amazing success in helping veterans who are addicted to heal themselves. I was just at the Baltimore Station last Sunday. I had dinner in the company of several veterans who are working towards wholeness again in their lives. Afterwards the director of Baltimore Station took me on a tour of their new wing and spoke about the fullness of their wonderful program. Their program is all about dignity and hope and hard work. I couldn't help but think of my father, a veteran of WWII who died of his alcholism at age 49 in 1973, and I was embarrassed that I tears sprang to my eyes. I wish Baltimore Station had been there when father needed it.

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

devoted, knowledgeable, extraordinarily kind.

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

multiply those bucks like the loaves and the fishes, because they seem to know how to work miracles with the bucks they have right now.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
