We realize that not every Veteran who has experienced combat has PTSD. We understand that simply readjusting to life back home can be difficult and painful. Our Certified Peer Support is for any Combat Veteran experiencing difficulty readjusting and completely confidential. The concept is to create both social and healing activities that bring veterans together.
If you are a veteran having difficulty re-adjusting to civilian life, our goal is to provide you with a connection to other veterans like you, who are fighting the same battles you are. You are not alone.
Time and time again when I speak to Veterans who have experienced Combat Trauma they tell me, "I feel alone." As a Combat Trauma/PTSD Veteran myself, I have experienced that deep loneliness that comes from having these experiences. It took me twenty years, which almost killed me, to begin to come to terms with my trauma. Many Vets have difficulty talking about their experiences with civilian counselors, and even family and friends. We miss the brotherhood we experienced while serving in combat situations and many times carry survivor guilt for making it back alive. Our Veteran Support Squads cultivate comradarie, accountability, trust, and confidentiality through our basic principles (Our Code):
These principles bind us together as we support each other as we find balance on the path to healing and wholeness.
We are looking for combat veterans familiar with combat trauma to facilitate meetings in your local area. If you are a combat trauma veteran or partner to one, and would like more info on facilitating an online group or one in your area please contact the firstname.lastname@example.org
