Review for Vets Journey Home USA, Inc., Milwaukee, WI, USA
I’ve dealt with my issues for over 37 years. I’ve been to the VA 5 times and was helped quite a bit. However, unknown to me, I was still carrying baggage from my military experiences that was affecting my confidence and ability to enjoy life. I was invited to a Vtes Journey Home weekend and attended. Due to the caring nature of staff and the environment we were in, I was able to release so much that was bogging me down over the years that I came away with so much relief I still feel better. It never goes away, but I know I hold my head higher and have renewed confidence in areas where previously I was doubting myself.
The military is the only organization I know of where a good successful mission still means good guys die. The military trains you to accept that. But when you go through a tough time, you’re still human and have to deal with tough consequences. We’re not called GI (government issue) for nothing. Vets need an organization like Vets Journey Home so they can release they’re inner demons and still be loved and accepted by fellow vets and civilians who care and bridge the gap to leading a fairly normal civilian life.
I thank God for my healing through Vets Journey Home. I’ve become a better person not bogged down by the demons of tough military experiences.
