A select few of us are suffering from issues related to combat injuries. Those of us who are, may be suffering from any of a long list of issues.
A few people who ARE qualified to address things along the lines of sexual and intimacy issues stemming from genital injuries sustained while in combat/training will be available in Warrior Clinic at Walter Reed, Bethesda on Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. That’s 2012/05/02 @ 1000 BLDG 8; 3rd Floor for those of us who rely on military time. They are starting a brand new workshop designed to help with intimacy issues. The intent is to provide useful feedback and insight into problems all of us with these issues are facing.
I took a great trip back to Arkansas to visit my old stomping grounds and was greeted fervently by a vast and growing community of supporters looking for ways to back up wounded warriors, veterans, and our wonderful men and women in foreign lands.
I spent the day with Congressman Womack and had a chance to address some open ears concerning my experiences, and my recovery from my injury. It was the first real chance I had to speak in front of such a large gathering, and I dare say I enjoyed it. I hope I have the chance to express my gratitude for the opportunity in the days to come. I look forward to telling my friends at Walter Reed in Bethesda all about the events and make sure they know about the support that’s here for them.
If you would like to know about ways to support the troops, and would like to contribute, feel free to comment, email, tweet, or post on facebook. Someone will help you out. You can also check out the list of links on the right of the page. I recommend the USO for sure. They really helped me get through 3 deployments and they continue to send love and support to the warriors all over the world.
