Recent Activity  -


I have started a Veteran Community, I hope to create a nationwide network so that those of us who are strong can help to strengthen those of us who are struggling. We currently have 4 pages up and running under the 2/406 VSC banner: Military trauma- PTSD/MST Veterans/SM's only Spouses & Reception The Childrens group is in the works now. I currently lead a Veterans Support group in Great Falls, MT, 2/406 Veterans Support Company. I am unable to work in my chosen profession as a Restaurant Manager due to my deteriorating back, but have focused myself on the issues that we as Veterans face when we come home. I focus our group on a continuation of our military skillset, instead of transition I focus on adapt & overcome and a modified Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT).
