Veteran Ceremony

This ceremony utilizes a digitalized program that a facilitator can provide for Veterans, their families, civilians, and citizens to help Veterans lay their burdens down. Safe sanctuary is provided where sacrifices are acknowledged, honored, mourned, and redeemed.

Family members are also encouraged to attend because they are secondarily impacted by their loved one’s trauma plus they are the ones providing needed support on a regular basis. They are the “unsung heroes” whose sacrifice often goes unacknowledged.

Civilians and Citizens are encouraged to attend so they can accept their responsibility to help heal our nation after war. They will learn how to provide a safe environment so that the wounds Veterans sustain in our name can be healed together.
