    Charles Black Veterans At SeaThe purpose of the “Operation Restore Hope – Retreat” program is to significantly enhance the lives of wounded veterans, their families and caregivers through self-care and peer support. Achieving this purpose ... will also have a direct effect on the communities where these families live, by reducing the high risk of family crisis from mental or physical injuries that in the past has led to domestic violence, divorce or suicide. The Need:The decade-long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have been experienced not only on the battlefield, but also back at home with military families in the United States. The ongoing threat of ISIS and the possibility of a new war in Iraq and Syria will only add to the current problems these families have.

I spent several years in recovery at places like Craig Institute in Colorado, Centre for Neuro Skills in California, several local hospitals and home. During this time I had to learn how to read and understand or comprehend what I just read as well as how to do math again. Not to mention many other life skills old and new that many of us take for granted on a daily basis.
