Review for The Foundation For Exceptional Warriors, Inc, Bixby, OK, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My Army brother, Chris Wolfenbarger, begged me to attend an event with The FEW. He knew my struggles post-combat as we had served side by side and knew he could help me with an array of my struggles by gathering with fellow Warriors struggling as well. Since that first event, I've been on three events, headed to my fourth as an assistant and actually running an entire event this fall. This group offers the finest of trips for fur, fin and feather chasers who have struggled in one form or another from mental and physical injury from combat operations. The trips are amazing, however the fellowship around a dinner table or campfire are far more therapeutic than one could possibly imagine. Warriors walk away with a sense of belonging, a sense of pride and a sense of brotherhood not found in any institution or clinic. These events bring out the good in Warriors who would otherwise think themselves unworthy or isolated. I personally walked away from my event cleansed knowing I was not alone in struggle and that it was okay to share, laugh and cry amongst brothers and sisters in arms. This organization runs strictly on donations. There is no CEO in an office building in a pavement jungle collecting. The Board members as well as the associates are sitting in blinds, helping guide and run events and sitting around the table as like minded Warriors. I'm proud to be involved as an invitee, an assistant and a member of the FEW. The best cause in our nation is a cause healing the Warriors that defend it. Simply life changing
