In this episode we learned about Safari Club International and the humanitarian outreach program they offer for wounded warriors who are suffering from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). This program collaborates with the wounded warrior evaluation program at Fort Benning to identify veterans who are suffering significant decreased quality of life due to PTSD. They bring them together with other similar veterans and a group of professionals and volunteers to take them on excursions to let them experience nature and positive, compassionate people who help to show them that there is value and hope in their lives; that they can return to a life that is closer to “normal” for them. In this way these veterans begin to regain a sense of worth and purpose to carry on in spite of their past traumatic experiences.
