SISFI presents “Healing for the Wounded Warriors” on Tuesday Oct. 15th at 9pm on SISFI Radio. This is a special presentation from Mr. Brett A. Scudder, The Abuse Czar as he brings Love, comfort, togetherness and peace to the advocates and humanitarians that are selflessly sacrificing their lives every day in the pursuit of the greater good of humanity and our society. Everyday wounded warriors stand up to the challenges of fighting for others so they don’t suffer the same fate as they did without asking for anything in return. Their Love, passion and commitment for the greater good goes above and beyond themselves without having anyone or any resource to turn to for themselves.There are many times warriors find themselves lonely, hurting, in need of company, a listening ear, a shoulder to lean on and someone who can understand and relate to what they are going through but it’s never easy as they are looked upon as being strong and can handle whatever life throws at them. This is not true, it’s far from it. Warriors that were once wounded are sometimes scared deep and isn’t something that can be overcome easily or quickly and so constant healing, meditating and replenishing is needed.Join us for this special dedication of healing of the Wounded Warriors. All advocate and humanitarians are invited to join in the session as we cleanse, heal, replenish and uplift each other.Much Love Always and God bless as we continue to fight the good fight for the greater good.One Love,~SISFI~
In September of 2007 while acting as Assault Force Commander to capture an Al Qaeda High Value Individual, LT Redman’s Assault Team came under heavy machine gun and small arms fire and he was severely wounded in the ensuing firefight. After 37 surgeries, Jason uses his positive attitude to motivate others and to continue to raise awareness of the sacrifices of America’s military forces and their families. This drive led him to create Wounded Wear, a Non-Profit organization, and to promote awareness throughout the country of the sacrifices that wounded service members have made in the name of freedom. In his book; The Trident, Jason traces the evolution of a modern warrior, husband, and father, a man who has come to embody the never-say-die spirit that defines the U.S. SEALs. Mr. Redman lives his life as a testament to wounded warriors and all Americans that there is no obstacle that cannot be overcome if you have the drive, the determination, and the tenacity to rise above. You can learn more about Jason HERE or on Facebook and Twitter.
Joining Pete Parker, former Navy Seabee and Professional Strength Athlete, for this month's “TUFFTalk” edition of Changing Worldviews is retired Air Force doctor and Iraq vet James Pollock to discuss his work with Wounded Warriors as well as his insights on the dreaded Affordable Care Act.
According to the website, “Helping Hands For Freedom,” over two million children have a parent who is in the military. Over 48,000 have a parent that has been wounded or killed during the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts.
Imagine two close knit families. The children said goodbye to one of the most important people in their lives, their dads as they departed for deployment, destination: the combat zone. They worried they may be injured or worse.
Later, they learn their dad is coming home unexpectedly, but it’s far from a time to celebrate. Their parent, the person they love, admire and look to for strength and support, is now in need of both. He is fighting for his life.
The children’s lives are suddenly turned upside down, never to be the same.
In this episode, we will meet the youngsters of two families that are willing to share their stories of patriotism, sacrifice, loyalty and bravery as they openly share what life is like for the families of a wounded parent.
Jordan Saffron’s dad, SSGT Terry Saffron, was wounded in Bagdad, Iraq on May 5, 2004 when an improvised explosive device (IED) exploded, killing two soldiers and causing critical injuries to their dad. Her Mom, Colleen Saffron has also faced her own battles.
Sheldon and Bailey Hale are the oldest siblings of four children. Their father, SSGT Aaron Hale, also suffered catastrophic injuries during an IED explosion. Complicating things further, their mom, Kelly Hale was then diagnosed with cancer.
November is National Military Family Appreciation Month, and it's also Warrior Care Month. Join us as we talk with Sheldon, Bailey, and Jordan, and gain a candid view of family strength, resiliency and hope through their eyes.

Since 2001, about 2.5 million men and women have served in the U.S. military. One-third of these service members served more than once. About half of all returning veterans have some level of service-connected disability. For many veterans, the transition to civilian life means leraning to life with a disability. Today’s “yellow ribbon” spirit has resulted in better services, protections and treatments for wounded warriors. However, many veterans, especially those with disabilities, still face significant barriers in their transition to civilian life. For veterans, work is not just about a paycheck. It’s about identity, pride and human connection. It’s also about healing because those who are employed have better physical and mental health. During this episode, we will focus on several key issues for returning wounded warriors to their work.
