These unprecedented times are only getting more concerning and contributing to a higher level of anxiety, particularly among our Veteran population. The constant streaming of mostly discouraging news, along with a reduced ability to freely mingle with others to keep spirits up, makes it difficult for many military and veterans to maintain their morale. A Warrior’s Welcome, Transitioning and Remembering, is a military and veteran’s community, wanting to help those who have given so much.
A new secure place for Veterans to come together to help each other through issues they are having, is being launched by Project Help. “The meetings will be facilitated by Reno Schwind, a Marine Corp veteran and resident of Sussex County,” said Sandy Mitchell.
During a veteran’s military service, their base, ship or shore station is a place to call home – a safe haven to share in the company of some of the finest men and women with a mission in common. A Warrior’s Welcome aims to create that same spirit of brotherhood at its weekly gatherings. A Warrior’s Welcome will consist only of active service and veterans, and will provide a safe place for all veterans to communicate and engage with other veterans on a level that is simply not possible in most social networking environments.
A Warrior’s Welcome gathering encourages informal discussions on a wide range of interests – from problems they are dealing with, local community concerns, uplifting stories and humor and other topics as the group determines as favorable at the time. Quite often the discussions are about issues these warriors are trying to handle.
With a number of members suffering from combat-related and other health issues, AWW’s weekly network support gatherings provides a safe environment where veterans can discuss the situations they face each day. As deemed necessary and desired, there will be experts in the field join the meeting.
Once every other month there will be a webinar that is open to all to help with issues, answer questions and bring in experts to supply real answers to the problems faced by our warriors.
In support of the Military/Veteran community at this difficult time, they invite you to join A Warrior’s Welcome via the following link: https://projecthelp.us/warriors-welcome/
AWW will quickly evolve into a hybrid event, meaning it will be virtual and live at the same time, so more service men will be able to participate. This networking group is for men only. There will, in time, be a group for women only.
Project Help is a grass roots 501c3 organization whose mission is to support and serve military and veterans in times of need. Through their hardship fund, they are able to provide grants to veterans and military in crisis situations. The need for volunteers, board members and donors is massive. “You can visit our website to learn more about our mission and how you can get involved” said Sandy Mitchell, founder and Executive Director. https://projecthelp.us
