Review for Fallen Warriors Foundation, Lake Oswego, OR, USA
I was introduced to the Veterans Retreat organized by the Fallen Warriors Foundation by my counselor at the Tacoma, WA Vet Center (a prior attendee) in 2003. I have missed only one retreat since due to scheduling problems. The meditation practice lead by Claude-Anshin Thomas has made a major difference in my ability to function with my Vietnam combat induced PTSD. My wife has attended two retreats as well and it made a positive difference in our relationship. I have actively promoted the retreat among my acquaintences and last year intoduced it to two new Vet Center counselors, who plan to go back as well. Colleen and Jack have for years carried this project on their backs and are two of the most straightforward, emotionally honest, and compassionate people I have ever met.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
help bring peace and healing to thousands who have been traumatized by war and other violence.
Ways to make it better...
I was better situated to provide more direct assistance to Colleen and Jack myself.
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
lack of funds to bring their programs to a larger regional or national audience of veterans.
