Vets4vets retreat. We held honest talks about our prior experiences during our military career. That included interventions with issues dealt during times away from family and friends. Fun activities were conducted to find common ground and to be able to trust each other and open up our internal pain and traumas encountered while over seas. The experiences helped each every one from the retreat to find happiness and lead other veterans to enter the Vets4vets meetings. Also these activities brought a sense of belonging and understanding, helping us realize that there aren't just few fellow soldiers dealing with everyday transition difficulties. We all dealt with it and thousands more and it was a way of opening up to a more healthier life. Vets4vets did and still carry on with their missions and I was proud to be a part of such movement.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
honorable soldiers and families who care about the way we feel about ourselves after and during our serving in the military. They made us feel no different than any one; in the service nor a civilian.
