I talked my dad into participating after talking with Anthony Luna about his family’s experience. Dad went reluctantly as it seems every vet does. I had no expectations when I went to the graduation on Sunday, but I saw a different man. He had a skip in his step and a twinkle in his eye that I had never seen before. He has not stopped thanking me for talking him into participating. Since then I have volunteered to staff weekends. I can’t put into words the changes I have experienced and the difference it has made in our relationship. Vets Journey Home has done so much for our family. I wish this program would have been available when dad returned from Viet Nam. I pray that every vet has the opportunity to experience this program. The wounds of combat affect the entire family no matter how hard you try to protect them. Healing the wound is the only way to stop the hurting.

The Great!

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

the changes in my relationship with Pop.

Ways to make it better...

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

have more volunteer staff assisting with the preparation leading up to the weekends.

More feedback

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

seeing the change in the expressions on the participants faces. The difference 3 days can make is amazing.

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

the most loving, compassionate, and giving people I have ever met.

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

get to every returning vet so that no soldier misses this opportunity.

Ways to make it better...

I can't imagine it being better.

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

funding to make it more available and staffing to recruit more vets.

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

THANK YOU! to all how have been involved in this journey.
