Review for ENGLISH RIVER OUTFITTERS RESORT, Tipton, IA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My family's lives were changed for in April 2005 when my husband and the father of our two children was severely injured in Iraq. He suffered a severe Traumatic Brain Injury, lost his right eye, his left side of his body is paralyzed and suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. With Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) being the "signature and Invisible" wound of this current war time veterans and their families need a place to heal, learn and transition back into civilian world. English River Outfitters provides just that. My husband is able to go hunting with other veterans who is in the same situation. Our family is able to camp with other families and relax knowing that we won't be judged or looked upon as completely crazy. Being around others who have traveled down the same road is so important.

Role:  Board Member & I am able to help other female veterans and families of disable veterans learn of their benefits but most of all help them heal in their new normal.
