"Connecting our Veterans with Themselves, their Families and their Communities." Just because the war stops, doesn’t mean the veteran stops warring...
The Rand Report tells us one in three soldiers will return home with post-traumatic stress (PTS), major depression and/or traumatic brain injury. Suicide rates for returning veterans continue to rise (now 23 per day) and 40% of the homeless are veterans. Veterans from all theaters are living with PTS.
Our young men and women have been highly trained as incredibly effective soldiers, airmen, sailors and Marines. Ethically and morally, the invisible wounds of our warriors must be addressed so they can find peace and reclaim their lives. America desperately needs help to safely return veterans to their families, friends and communities.
And now, finally, one small organization in Vermont is beginning to turn these statistics around and wants you to be part of the solution.
Using a unique and proven method, the TWC program is easing post-traumatic stress, resolving loss and repairing the moral injuries of combat veterans. How? Trained facilitators and mentors are creating safe and trust-worthy retreat settings. In small groups, veterans are facing themselves and telling the truth during a simple, yet powerful, six-day process. Here warriors are choosing a new code of conduct so they can return to their homes as the fathers, mothers, sons and daughters they want to be.
