    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.

    Brett A. Scudder presents Healing for the Wounded Warriors

    in Lifestyle

    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~

    Wounded Warriors: Surveying the Battlefield of the Sexes

    in Relationships

    Stanley Bernard, Carl Studna, and Dawn Wolf Keeper of Stories are rejoining Life Coach Ade for the Men's Panel to discuss "Wounded Warriors: Surveying the Battlefield of the Sexes."


    Warriors can be either male or female and the same can be said for soldiers. With the divisive practice of us vs. them men and women still are calling out for a healing in some of the ways we are relating with each other.  


    Could we be out of balance in our ability to express the wildness within ourselves? Which triggers us to want to subdue  it (wildness) in others or make them quiet. 


    Are men as free to express their tears as well as their anger, without being judged?  Being able to only express aggression leaves both men and women wanting in intimate relationships.


    Are you willing to give up the fight? Join a panel of brothers who are committed to living from the heart.


    Call in 347 426 3346 or post your questions on "Ask Life Coach Ade Radio Show" fan  (LIKE) page on Facebook.


    Also, don't miss Celestial Moment with Celeste Morgan. She offers the energy of the day!


    This show will shift your consciousness. Empower you to create a space and a place for inspiration, transformation and healing.

    Jason Redman; Wounded Warriors

    in Military

    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.

    'The Matt Duffin Show' - Jonathan Winchester & Wounded Warriors

    in Social Networking

    Sargent Jonathan Winchester is a friend of mine.  Jon became a professional photographer after 18 years of active duty in the Army; we worked many ballgames together during my sports writing years.  The career Army man didn't reach the 20-year retirement mark because of a TBI and PTSD.  Medically Retired.  We, in the Canal Town area are so proud of his duty and service - 2 tours in Iraq and 1 near deadly tour in Afganhastan (sp),  We'll talk more about the Veteran's Administration, and it's 'form' of recovery.  But Mr. Winchesters post service duty bars none.  Often a pall bearer for those who didn't survvive the wrath of war, Jon has seen Presidental Duty in motor cades, bike rides, memorial motor bike rides and even had his picture on a bike with Pres Obama taken (shut up!).  


    We'll run other PTSD interviews as time allows.  Also looking forward to an update from Sue Root (maybe), Dr. Kevin Butterfield, Gina around midnight and of course, Sam Way!  


    Between surgeries and having issues, bare with me.  But, I ALWAYS SHOW UP FOR WORK (now, what I do once there is another opion,)

    Kevin Hoyt


    TV Producer, Director, Chief Editor, Outdoor personality at Pursuit Channel  "We Deliver The Outdoors Conservationist Extreme, Outdoor Entertainer, TV Host & Producer, Outdoor Writer and Wildlife Artist. International Bowhunter Education Instructor and over 25 years as a Vermont State firearms safety Instructor. Currently producing for the National Pursuit Network and Time Warner Cable Sports Texas .Wounded Warriors Hunt


    Joe Freybler


    I was born and raised in La Crosse, WI and was introduced to the outdoors at an early age. He has many fond memories hunting for deer, ducks, upland game birds and fishing with his dad and brothers. Early in his twenties, Joe began coyote and fox hunting - and and he remembers calling in his first fox. He's enjoyed predator hunting ever since. With the decline of fox in Wisconsin, coyote hunting has become Joe's predator of choice. He has since passed these traditions on to his children, who have become hunting/fishing fanatics as well.


    Joe and his son recently founded an organization called Coulee Region Coyote Hunters/ CRCH Outdoors. This organization focuses on taking Wounded Warriors out on coyote hunts, as well as raising money for them. Every January, the Coulee Region Coyote Hunters organize and hold an Wounded Warriors Hunt/Coyote Tournament with all proceeds from the raffles and coyote hides going to Wounded Warriors United.
