Praise For Warrior Spirit Mission Home Front
Allowing for vulnerability and connection brings healing, power, and kinship.
“The idea of communication, following an extraordinary experience, trauma, or even a long separation, as in a combat deployment, is often the most difficult challenge for military personnel. What is conveyed is often purposefully superficial and often limited. An interruption in the ability to communicate thoughts, feelings, and beliefs, often results in a sense of profound isolation and exclusion. Warrior Spirit provides a unique connecting tool. It removes the challenge of subtle inquiry, by offering thoughtful, pre-designed questions, which can be used to illicit meaningful conversations with caring others. By using Warrior Spirit, service members and those who care and interact with them, are able to build trust and pathways for re-connection. Warrior Spirit is a wonderful resource and extraordinarily useful tool for those who wish to engage with servicemembers and military families!”

“The thing about veterans and PTSD is that veterans don’t trust anyone. This game will help veterans who are reluctant to open up, they will open up. Experiencing certain issues, you think you’re alone because there is nobody else out there who can relate. If you put this game into an environment with other veterans and people like myself that are going through the things that I’ve gone through, I think it would help a lot because those are the people that I would be open to and relate to, and they will be able to share things with me. This game will help them to walk down that path; start trusting people and opening up and also to help them to understand what is going on with themselves, and to know they are not the only ones going through these difficulties.”

“A year after Miguel got back he still wasn’t the same; he was quiet and we were not talking, we were not relating. When we were playing the game we both felt more connected, like before he left for Iraq. Playing the game made us realize why we fell in love to begin with, why we stay together, and that deep down inside my husband is still the same person he was before he went to Iraq. It was like magic, I had Miguel back.”“A year after Miguel got back he still wasn’t the same; he was quiet and we were not talking, we were not relating.

“Asking ourselves how we think and how we feel are the two fundamental ways human beings approach life. Frankly, most of us are not in touch with either. Warrior Spirit is a unique game (tool) that explores self-awareness and thoughtfulness in small group settings. I cannot imagine a better way for soldiers and family members to begin to understand each other and themselves. Three cheers for Warrior Spirit!“
