I attended a Veterans Journey Home retreat as a participant in Houston, TX during the spring of 2008 and it was a very helpful experience. The staff was very experienced and knowledgable about the subject matter and made me feel extremely comfortable with sharing my Vietnam experience. The staff's technique and caring they utilized was different with each veteran because each veteran had a different experience. It was gentle and understanding and I feel this helped tremendously with the healing process. It has been two years for me now and I still fall back on some of the tools that I learned at that retreat to help me deal with issues. I'm not sure how it could be improved?
