About VFV's Warriors For Life Program
Warriors for Life (WFL) Online Peer Support Group
We created the Warriors for Life (WFL) Online Peer Support Program to provide a simple Veteran to Veteran, First Responder to First Responder, and Caregiver 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-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or just Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS). The reality is once we are out of the military, we lose 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.
For First Responders on the frontline each every day, more have died from suicide then lost in the line of duty. Many of our veterans and first responders have served in both uniforms as well.
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 sessions 7-days a week, on a closed and private Facebook group, and in person when we can.

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.
