We are saving Veterans lives

The Long Walk Home enjoys holding Outreach Events, Suicide Prevention workshops and Mentorship Challenges, all designed to help reduce stress and connect Vets with other Vets.

From September 24th to September 26th, The Long Walk Home (TLWH) had the pleasure of hosting a group of Veterans at Two Hawk Hammock in Williston, FL for a weekend retreat. As the main draw, the Veterans had the opportunity to visit the nearby Two Tails Ranch and interact with live elephants. The weekend was filled with fun, laughter, relaxation, healing, and honest self-reflection. TLWH is humbled to have been able to share this experience with our country’s service members, and to connect them with resources they might otherwise have never known about.

The purpose of this retreat was not only to connect Veterans with nature, but also one another. Veterans too often return home from the military feeling lost and isolated. TLWH was founded in 2006 to address this problem and provide Veterans with the services, resources, and people they need to continue living fulfilled, purpose-driven lives. In October, TLWH will host another group of Veterans in Key Largo, FL to interact with dolphins. Then, on Veterans Day (November 13th), TWLH will be hosting its fourth annual Veterans Day Bike Ride at Fort De Soto Park in Tierra Verde, FL.
