The mailbags aren't full yet, but we are encouraged when we hear from each of you. Thanks so much for this heartfelt letter. It keeps us moving forward in pursuit of our vision to save lives and facilitate healing for our wounded military and their families.

Hello Devorah and Kalvin,

Just now I discovered your website and have been gratified to read about your fund-raising efforts to create a healing retreat for Wounded Warriors. Your stories are very touching and inspirational; I write to congratulate you on your vision and wish you success in this sacred project. I regret that I am not in a position to help you financially; all I can send you at this point are prayers and hope.

As we know all too well, there are many wounded warriors among us. I am married to one. Stephen returned from Vietnam with a severed thumb, Purple Heart and a case of PTSD that was only diagnosed a couple years ago. We are fortunate that he received good counsel which enabled him to jump through the VA hurdles, obtaining a 100% disability rating. Many others are not so lucky.

The VA hospitals provide much needed medical care, but seem to have little to offer in the way of treatment for PTSD, which is why centers like the one you are trying to put in place are so needed and important.

When – not if – your retreat center is built, we would love to come and see it. Although we live in Minnesota, we have family in Colorado and visit as frequently as possible.

If you have an e-mail or snail mail list, I would appreciate it if you would please put us on it and keep us informed of your progress.

Wishing you success in your mission and sending gratitude for all that you’re doing.
