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

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.
