Warriors for Life (WFL) Online Peer Support Group - "Honor & Respect Always!"

Warriors for Life (WFL) Online Peer Support Group


We created the Warriors for Life (WFL) Online Peer Support Group to provide a simple Veteran to Veteran solution to a number of issues many of us deal with. They include PTSD, TBI, MST, and other Invisible Disabilities, Addictions, and Wounds.


For thousands of years, as long as war has existed, warriors come home changed. For years it was called the thousand yard stare or shell shock. Today it is referred to as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or just Post-Traumatice Stress (PTS). The reality is once we are out of the military we loose the camaraderie we had in the military. It is difficult to talk to people that are not like us or that have similar issues with PTSD, TBI, MST or other Invisible Disabilities, Addictions, and Wounds.

Many times just being around people 'that know' words are not needed. When you combine this with loss of purpose many of us feel once we are out and just going to work each day, many can become depressed and detached.

We created WFL to provide a community of like-minded Veterans, First Responders, Caregivers, Active Service Members, and Civilian Supporters that can get each other's six. We do not provide medical support, psychiatric counseling or similar VA oriented programs. We simply meet and help each other work through it. We call it "Sharing is Caring!"

For obvious reasons we review and approve each member we invite to our community. We meet regularly in Online Peer Support Group session 6-days a week, on a closed and private Facebook group and in person when we can.

If you are struggling to connect, we invite you to send us a note by emailing COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs at: mikelb@victoryforveterans.org or connecting with us here on our private Facebook page:


You can connect with us at our website as well by using the button at the bottom of that page: https://www.victoryforveterans.org/support

Remember your situation is only unique to you, many of us were where you are many years ago and found ways through it. Sometimes it is as simple as finding a new purpose and some hope and having brothers and sisters behind you.

Make sure you explore our blog as well. We regularly post on these topics.

"Building a community of friendship, acceptance, and support for veterans, service members, and their families, where there is no judgment, stigma, or negativity ― That is what "Warriors for Life" is all about and our testimony!" ― COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs


Warriror for Life (WFL) Group Support is restoring Hope among Veterans, First Responders. Active Service Members, and Caregivers, on life’s edge and without hope! This is paramount to the WFL Group Support Mission.
