"For the first in 15 years, I feel like it's ok to finally live again. I owe it to this retreat! Thank you"
"I came to LSF in a very dark area of my life. I had reached out a few weeks prior to my primary resources only to be treated like I didn’t matter. I was at wit’s end. The symptoms I had been experiencing were all new, even though I had been dealing with PTSD for years. The new symptoms were more than I could handle but I hung on a few more days to reach out again for help. Thank God I was able to get relief from my symptoms through the LSF program. I felt as if I had been unstuck. I got what I needed to start moving forward again. From the bottom of my heart, thanks LSF and staff for what you do."
"I made more progress this weekend than I have made in the last 5 years of therapy."
"For the first time since my husband was shot, I truly believed he/we would be, not only ok, but great. Thank you."
"LSF has given our family a new lease on life. We have been given hope for the future, forgiven for the past, and have gained understanding. We are united as one and are now on our way to living a more fulfilled and positive life together!"
"There were things I had been experiencing since combat that I thought were only unique to me. It wasn’t until Lone Survivor Foundation that I found out that there were other veterans with the exact same things I had been experiencing. I am and will be forever grateful to Lone Survivor Foundation and its staff for everything they have done for me and for making me feel like I’m back home again."
"It has given me the quality time I needed to reconnect with my children, understand their concerns, and learn parenting skills I needed to be a better father and positive role model for them! I am forever grateful for people like you, that give back to disabled veterans reaching out for help to better their lives and the lives of their families."
"I do appreciate LSF and what you all do. I finally felt that I met people I could connect with during the retreat last year. And in my situation that is difficult to do."
"Life Changer, after this program I'm recharged and ready."
"This program saved my life, I had no other choices."
"I recommend this program to everyone, because if it worked for me, it can work for anyone."
"I was able to address a situation that has been bothering and haunting me for 9 years."
"Even after our session is over, throughout the day, things just come to you as 'ta-da moments'."
"There were many things revealed in each session. I appreciate being more connected with my wife and hearing what I can do to remain connected and communicating."
"I didn’t know what to expect, but I can sum it up easily. In the four days I was with LSF, I felt I made more breakthroughs and realizations about my disabilities than in the three years of therapy at the VA. I made friends and felt a camaraderie I haven’t felt in a long time. THIS PROGRAM WORKS and I hope it will help many other veterans like myself for years to come."
