Tools for Relationships Part 2

Tools for success

February 22nd-24th Raider Project Hosted it's VERY first Relationship Retreat on Topsail Island, NC with speakers: Dr. Jim RichardsPastors Dennis and Denise Capra and Chief Morale Officer, Kirk Weisler. The objective of this retreat was to give combat veteran's the tools they need for successful family relationships.


We typically have some sort of plan for every aspect of our lives.  However, the idea of having a plan for a prosperous and fulfilling marriage seems foreign at times.  This weekend not only brought about a new perspective and ideology regarding having a plan to not only have a successful marriage, but also more importantly to enjoy the journey. The idea that we can take that journey together, with the ability to say, “We’ve never been here before, but we will go through this together”, is both a relief and inspiring.  The benefits of the past few days spent at the retreat are immense.  From the guest speakers, meals with one another, planned activities together, time to reflect, this process is a win for sure. This has been an inspiration for us both regarding the future of our marriage. Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of this great weekend! -Justin Morris / Liz Morris

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.

I hope this letter reaches you in relative peace. I am Fritz Sleigher and just retired out of MARSOC after 22 years in our beloved Corps. Thank you for the retirement note. I served as an 02, 0369, 0311, and 0317 with a smattering of other MOS’ at various units. I retired as a Gunny, which will come into play shortly. I watched your video and feel your pain. Although we have never met, I am certain that you feel each loss of life and are just as confused as to why Marines are taking their lives at an alarming rate. I’ll never understand the monumental burden of command you bear, but I am certain we both share the feeling of loss, guilt, and confusion after each suicide. The BLUF on suicide is this: The current culture of the Corps conflicts with itself and creates an environment where those in need feel even more secluded. I re-posted your article on FB, and several peers (recently retired enlisted combat vets) sing the same tune: The Corps let them down.
