Reintegration is a tough issue that military families grapple with all the time. Butterfly Wife (fellow blogger and milspouse) recently welcomed her husband home from Iraq. She and her husband will join us for a candid hour about the reintegration process. You don't want to miss this show!
(SHOW WILL BE HOSTED BY DANIEL MAYS FROM THE NEXT MISSION)
Join us with our first guest of the night will be Mike MacDonald with his project that he has been working on which is called A Warrior’s Reintegration.
Mike MacDonald is an Iraq War Veteran, he served on active duty for 5 years in the Military Police. Mike was later honorably discharged from the military in 2013. He began to take photographs to begin to raise awareness of the issues of veteran suicide in regards to the issues that are not spoken about amongst others.
Then join us with our second guest of the night Kate Longest while we discuss her organization Rescue to Service Dogs For Vets.
During this time we will go more in depth behind the company to discuss the PTSD recovery support groups, the types of assistance in training as well as styles of training for the dogs as well as vets.
These are great organizations to get involved with so lets show some of our fellow veterans some support by thanking them for what they do. Also keep in mind we still have not given the copy of A Warriors Garden that was written by Malachias Gaskin along with a warriors garden coin.
This week, we'll discuss reintegration. Once deemed a "sex offender" or worse, a "sexually violent predator," how can you start over as a member of society? Most go through this process alone. But in recent years, programs.have been popping up all over the world & in several U.S. states.
We'll discuss the difficult process of reingrating without help. See this experience through the eyes of Derek Logue, Author of Once Fallen. His life after incarceration and the many difficulties he faced led to activism. He then wrote the book, detailing his struggles. Derek's detailed web site is at: OnceFallen.com. You may also purchase his book here.
We will also delve into a successful reintegration program that's near Coalinga State Hospital. Circles of Support and Accountability or COSA got its start in Canada and now has successful branches in the UK as well as in MN, among others. Our guest Frank Juarez has worked with COSA in Fresno, CA and will discuss his experiences. Please visit COSA Fresno at http://peace.fresno.edu/cosa/.
Join us for this informative show--find out what can happen when the community & volunteers help the newly freed men find their place in society. What a difference it can make for all involved! Note: In the coming months, CSH News will be highlighting other similar programs. If there's one you'd like to see on the show, please email us using the link at the top of CSHNews.com.
This Sunday, we will be discussing the need for cultural/spiritual opportunities in this countries prisons, and a need for transitional support upon release of our relatives. Ever since the first sweat lodge appeared behind prison walls in Nebraska in the early 70's, this issue has been well litigated in state and federal courts. Even Amnesty International has examined these cases.
In 1982, the warden at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary compared Native culture/spirituality to the Aryan Brotherhood and the Ku Klux Klan in denying permission to form a cultural group as mandated by court orders. By the 90's, sweat lodge was allowed at many prisons, and the right to wear long hair had been fought and won, but the real battle remains. What is there for Native prisoners upon their release?
In the past ten years the Muscogee Nation has began their Reintegration program and others have began to develop their own. This week I met with the Choctaw Nation and was asked to begin to gather information and data to create a program for reintegration. For myself, this was a milestone in my life as I had asked the Choctaw Nation to do this 30 years ago.
We all have families, loved ones and friends in prison. We hope the best for them upon their release, but it is a long road back with a type of PTSD from existing in months - years within a violent and dangerous environment. Employment becomes difficult without marketable skills and coping without life skills makes it stressful that sometimes one just gives up and resorts to old habits that reduces a sense of self-worth.
We'll discuss these and many other issues in the two hours we have this weekend. Plan to listen in and share with your friends!

Trigger warnings are necessary for this presentation. This broadcast reveals terrible horrors of cruelty and glorious miracles of healing, in the realm of human experiences. When men are seduced into darkness they are seen to disappear into an increasing horror by those who do not walk in that darkness with them. A terrible malevolence and a dynamic evil has been exercising the children of the dark one, Satan-Lucifer, in their willingness to sacrifice the most vulnerable ones in the human family, the children, even when they are still in the womb, because of the almost infinite hatred the evil One has for those made in the image of the only True God, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The reading of this wonderful book, THE SHINING MAN WITH HURT HANDS, is a precious privilege that lets people glimpse miracles in the lives of people who experience the Good Shepherd restoring the souls of people who were subjected to satanic torture and spiritual kidnapping by others, many of whom had their own lives stolen from them so they also could be dedicated to doing evil.
