    Wounded Warrior Project and Wounded Warriors in Kitsap

    in Military

    In January 2014, Professional Options hosted a Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) meeting at Poulsbo City Hall so area veterans could learn about how to benefit from WWP. Attendees hear about successes and challenges our veterans and their families face after serving and sacrificing for our country, and how the services provided by WWP allow them to move forward with their "new normal."

    WWP provides support and services to post-Sept. 11 veterans such as college scholarships and stipends; cash grants to service providers to cover basic needs like food, rent and utilities; physical and psychological rehabilitation; combat stress recovery; benefits assistance; peer support; and career development and training. In 2012 alone, it spent $114 million to aid wounded veterans, their families and their caregivers.

    The meeting was WWP's first time in Kitsap, and a Wounded Warriors in Kitasp (WWIK) group (no affiliation with WWP) was loosely formed and communicates via a Facebook page.


    Join us as we talk with regional WWIK advocates and leaders Charles Keating, Todd Best, and Jeremy Creed about what's ahead.

    Wounded Warrior, Lets Get It Together

    in Social Networking

    This Week on Real Men Speak we want to continue on our series The Wounded Warrior, but the conversation is going to be more on what we can do better as men. It is time for us to take responsibility for our own actions and stop blaming others for our failures.


    The tragedy of two men if not more is a direct result of not just someone taking our lives but us giving them our lives.  Real Men Speak is going to continue giving our listening audience especially men tips on how to stay alive and well in these days of trial and tribulation.


    That's our discussion this week in the Man Cave 


    Remember Real Men Speak is designed to make options available.  We need to know that there is a way out and a way for change.


     


    Happy holidays!  And May God Continue to take us places we've never been before.

    Talking About PTSD With John Roberts from Wounded Warrior Project

    in Military

    John Roberts from Wounded Warrior Project joins VOW Talk Radio to discuss PTSD.


    Warrior Relations Executive Vice President at Wounded Warrior Project, John Roberts served in the US Marine Corps from 1982 to 1996, when he received a medical discharge following a prolonged recovery from wounds suffered in the crash of a helicopter in the seas of Somalia at the beginning of Operation Restore Hope. 


    In that 1992 crash, John suffered third-degree burns over 80 percent of his body, resulting in the loss of use of his left leg. His right arm was nearly severed; though doctors were able to reattach the arm, John suffers a serious loss of use of this extremity as well. Following military service, John wasted no time in starting a career devoted to his fellow wounded veterans. His first job was with the Disabled American Veterans, working as a national service officer in the organization’s office in Houston, Texas.


    On March 29, 2007 – exactly 15 years after the date of his injury – John left the VA to become national service director for Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP). He was later promoted to the position of mental health and family support executive vice president and today served as warrior relations executive vice president. In this role, John works with all WWP program staff to ensure the most effective, beneficial warrior experience possible. 


    We will be talking with John Roberts about life after combat, PTSD and ways to adjust to life after war.
