Raider Project Veteran Retreat

By: Fritz S.

 RAWAH Wilderness Retreat

I can't really choose between personal firsts: fly-fishing or horseback riding. I was equally and truly happy loping through wide open valley bottoms and catching brook trout at the bottom of a mountain waterfall. Great conversation and company was the standard through the week. Playing with Goose, the most energetic English Bulldog I've ever met, was awesome and instantly erased stress. What else can I say? Amazing week tucked into the Colorado Rockies! 

                 
                 

The Raider Project, teamed with Rawah Ranch is a GAME CHANGER for both active duty and transitioned Marines. The Raider Project approach-one focused on growth and mental strength-is heightened at Rawah Ranch, where everyday distractions are scuttled to allow one to not only think, but to listen to ones-self. The combination of world-class activities, genuine staff, outstanding meals, and focused counseling made for a week that would turn any naysayer into a believer. Highly recommend partaking or contributing to this enormous and effective effort directed at Special Operations personnel!'

             
          

 

OUR MISSION

Now in it's third year, Raider Project - a GallantFew Inc. (501.c3) - is a program that remains focused on the US Marine Corps Combat Veteran. Raider Project provides services to Marine Combat veterans ranging from suicide prevention, drug addiction treatment, PTS therapy, as well as unconventional treatments for TBIs and employment and financial assistance. With our ambassadors, we are able to offer peer-to-peer counseling, veteran wilderness retreats, climbing retreats, fishing trips, as well as community sports programs. We live the MOTTO. "Never above you, never below you, always beside you." We want to connect veterans to the resources they need to be healthy as well as the tools they need for their own success.

I was physically injured during service to my country, I was also emotionally shattered; transitioning to civilian life a constant challenge. I have had some success with equine therapy, the most successful treatment I had been through before the Serenity Trauma Healing Center program. The unique resources offered by Karl Monger and Gallantfew are like none other that I have ever had the privilege or access to in the past.

Since all of the other participants share similar experiences, you develop a tight bond by swapping stories and having some laughs after a day of climbing. You get the feeling that even though your time in the military may have past, the brotherhood in which you share still exists. They are here for me and I am here for them, no matter what.

The rise in the need for drugs, alcohol, physical and sexual activity could in part be due to the rise in people who are desperate for emotional stimulation. One thing is sure: you can develop the ability to connect with others relationally without substances nor inappropriate physical stimulation! Learning to shut down and close ourselves off emotionally may have been a survival strategy we developed as children that no longer serves us today.
