My experience with Vets Journey Home has changed my life and that of my family in an amazingly positive way. I returned from Iraq after a 16 month deployment and thought I would just move right back into my "normal" life as a husband and father. Five years later I woke up one morning and did not recognize the man that was looking at me in the mirror. There were problems in my family because of how I had changed. It was that day I decided I needed some type of help. After participating in the VJH course, I began to move towards a more positive lifestyle. VJH not only gave me hope of a more fulfilled life, it gave me the tools and support to cope with issues that I had bottled up for such a long time. Every day I wake up a happier man. My wife and two daughters are much happier now that they have their "old Larry"" back. Thank you Vets Journey Home for making it possible for me to heal my heart and begin anew!
Sincerely, Larry Flaskrud - US Army 14 years of service, WI

I experienced VJH shortly after my wife and I seperated. VJH helped me gain tools to help me better cope with PTSD and how to deal with post military life. I served in the US Marine Corps and I truly had a hard time adapting to civilian life. I was angry, scared, and frustrated with myself, family, friends, and even my God for the madness I felt on a daily basis. At VJH I found out that I was no longer alone that their were other vets dealing with the same pains as I was. I truly appreciate VJH for their work with Vets.

Sincerely,

John Zavala Jr. (Board Member VJH Texas)

I started out w/ Vets Journey Home as a volunteer & staffed my first weekend in the spring of 2009. I saw the powerful difference it made in the lives of the participants & thanks to Gene, received healing that I didn't even know I needed after my time in the Navy in the early '80s. Since then, I've staffed each weekend that's taken place here in Maryland. Each time reinforces why I support VJH - because it definitely helps heal the wounds of the soul that veterans & others impacted by the trauma of war have received. I cannot recommend the weekend enough for those struggling with the aftereffects of war.

The Great!

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

Getting thanked for my service & realizing that I'd never gotten that recognition when I got out of the Navy in 1986

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

No changes necessary right now.
