Finding Your New Tribe - The Calling

May 06, 2019 0 Comments

This month is Military Caregiver's Month. Hannah Honsberger is a Raider wife with an amazing story of restoration. After her husband's life altering static line crash, Hannah rushed to Josh's side to help him through the debilitating injury that pulled him from his life's purpose and mission as an operator; But that is only the beginning of their story.

"As a military wife there were many times I waited for that highly anticipated phone call from another country during deployment - this picture always reminds me of that time in our life. That phone cord was our lifeline to each other. Life during the military and after, simply means answering the call. Answer the call when your veteran is in need. Answer the call when your family is in need. Someone who has always answered the call for our family is The Raider Project."

Josh had a long road to recovery, but his mission was clear: Finding his new tribe and building and unshakeable foundation. They did it together.

This past weekend the Raider Project brought the Honsberger family to Joshua Tree, California for a weekend of climbing, camping, yoga and emotional fitness coaching. Josh and Hannah's older daughters got to do some outdoor climbing for the first time and it was cosmic. They were fearless!

"Today we are taking part in a weekend Rock climbing/camping retreat in Joshua Tree National Park. We are so grateful for the Raider Project and all it’s moving parts and people who make experiences like this happen for our veteran and our family." - Hannah Honsberger

Raider Project is more than just our veterans. Community means family. It means the new tribe you get to build when you come home. This week we watched Josh Honsberger and his tribe succeed in amazing things on the rock climbing wall, and do things they had never done, together. Family.

My experience of this retreat comes from just that: my own story, the stories I’ve heard and accepted from others, the ones I’ve told myself over the years, I underwent brain surgery 3 months ago, and having a brain tumor removed felt like it released a host of toxic emotions that I could no longer hide from. It was like everything that I pushed down, put away in a box, and refused to talk about, was finally able to “get out.” For the first time in my life, I was forced to do nothing but sit and think, The beauty of this marriage retreat weekend was that the Raider Project pulled together a community of people into an environment where I didn’t feel ashamed of my stories. I found myself acknowledging feelings I had previously refused to think about. I found myself accepting past events. I found myself looking at my spouse and really seeing him. I found myself choosing to communicate with my husband and trust that my vulnerability will only help him understand me and love me more...

The word Post Traumatic Stress DISORDER is ridiculous. I understand the Post Traumatic Stress part but the DISORDER? Why? Does having PTS really mean you have a disorder. Maybe to a clinical psychologists who refer to the DSM IV to diagnose a certain mental health issue it can be a disorder. However, the word disorder used for veterans can cripple your mental stability.
