Review for Fallen Warriors Foundation, Lake Oswego, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Dear Fallen Warriors Foundation, I am happy to recommend the Fallen Warriors Foundation as a not-for-profit organization helping veterans. The Fallen Warriors Retreat I attended was a benefit to me in many ways. As a combat veteran of Vietnam era, I was highly motivated in seeking help to understand what I had experienced in combat. I can't say it was a particular therapy or the leader that gave me a sense of safety, but a sharing of experiences with other veterans and learning to listen to them, changed me. I would give Fallen Warriors Foundation a 5 of 5 stars on any chart. I would attend again. I'm impressed enough with what the Fallen Warriors Foundation has done for veterans, that we started, (Jan 2010), a version of the Fallen Warriors Retreats here in Gilpin County Colorado. So yes, what Colleen O'Callaghan and Jack Estes have put together is of value and would be a big hole for many veterans if it were not available. Sincerely, Deni Darby Gilpin County Veterans Service Officer 2960 Dory Hill Rd. Suite 100 Black Hawk, Colorado 80422 (303) 582-5444 ex 1103

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

the Fallen Warriors Retreat I attended in 2007. This single retreat set in motion a series of events to bring about a not-for-profit Veteran's Resource Centre in Central City Colorado.

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

That they exist, without their efforts so many lives would not have been touched.

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

Kind friendly, inviting and created a safe place to open up to and within.

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

do a lot more for the veterans, and we need them.

Ways to make it better...

Can't say anything really, I would enjoy returning to the Fallen Warriors Retreat every year and it not cost as much. I know it is difficult to account for such a large group for 4 -5 days.

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

Getting funding to continue their work and efforts on so many fronts and needs.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

One time
