About "Warriors for Life" WFL

We created the Warriors for Life (WFL) group support program to provide a simple Veteran to Veteran solutions to a number of issues many of us deal with. They include PTSD, TBI, MST, and other invisible disabilities/wounds and addictions.  

For thousands of years, as long as war has existed, warriors come home changed. For years it was called the thousand yard stare or shell shock. Today it is referred to as PTSD. The reality is once we are out of the military we loose the camaraderie we had in the military. It is difficult to talk to people that are not like us or that have similar issues with PTSD, TBI, MST or other disabilities and addictions.

Many times just being around people 'that know' words are not needed. When you combine this with loss of purpose many of us feel once we are out and just going to work each day, many can become depressed and detached.

We created WFL to provide a community of like-minded Veterans and Civilians that can get each other's six. We do not provide medical support, psychiatric counseling or similar VA oriented programs. We simply meet and help each other work through it.

For obvious reasons we review and approve each member we invite to our community. We meet regularly in conference calls, on a closed and private Facebook group and in person when we can.

If you are struggling to connect, we invite you to send us a note bu eamiling COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs at: mikelb@victoryforveterans.org or connecting with us on our private Facebook page:  

You can connect with us at our website as well by using the button at the bottom of that page: https://www.victoryforveterans.org/support
Remember your situation is only unique to you, many of us were where you are many years ago and found ways through it. Sometimes it is as simple as finding a new purpose and some hope and having brothers and sisters behind you.

Make sure you explore our blog as well we regularly post on these topics.

How the organization supports veterans, service members, and military families

"Building a community of friendship, acceptance, and support for veterans, service members, and their families, where there is no judgment, stigma, or negativity ― That is what "Warriors for Life" is all about and our testimony!" ― COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

Warriors for Life (WFL) Group Support is restoring Hope among Veterans and Military, on life’s edge and without hope! This is paramount to the WFL Group Support Mission. 

Sally Thomas: "Col. Burroughs is a great facilitator in his group call meeting. He continually keeps the morale, energy and intellectually stimulating information at a high level, while showing genuine caring and concern for his participants, both in and off the group call.

Warriors For Life (WFL) is expanding to offer this valuable time during the week for Veterans to connect and share about their lives, struggles and more from once a week to three in the hopes of operating each night of the week very soon.
We're looking for additional facilitators to cover ALL Weekday Nights, so we can reach and support more veterans and service members.
