Review for Vets Journey Home USA, Inc., Milwaukee, WI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have staffed these weekend trainings for Vets who never felt they had been welcomed home. I can attest to the power and the joy that the experience releases. I have seen Vets open doors to their hearts that had been locked since their service. I remember a Vet who spoke of his bomb sniffing dog. He had worked with this dog for a year in Vietnam. The dog had saved his and others lives. He tried to get the dog released and bring home with him. It wasn't possible. A few month's after he left the service, he learned that the dog had perished in an explosion. The experience had torn him up for years. The VJH home experience allowed him for the first time to touch that pain and begin the process of healing.
