It was at this moment in mylife I felt a great deal of respect and compassion for the sacrifice they make.

One of thehardest things I had to do was analyze all the field reports and incidents oursoldiers faced while captured and/or in combat. I still remember some of thosestories…..I will never forget.My desire is to be able to help acclimate soldiers back into civilian and familylife, and help families of soldiers to cope with this transition with training themhow to assist in his or her transition.
