We know that about twenty Veterans per day commit suicide. We know that Veterans’ families often times face daunting difficulties at home while servicemen are deployed and too often things only get worse once the Veteran returns home.

Some folks do wonderful things to help. I want to thank Lyle Rapacki, Ph.D., of Sentinel Intelligence Services for sending a couple of remarkable videos to us. These brief videos give us a glimpse into parts of the psychology of reorienting to life after military service – using Equine Therapy. We wish all our Veterans who want, need, or seek help in healing the hidden wounds of the soul could have access to this sort of therapy.  We are thankful that some do.

Equine Therapy

Oath Keepers wants to salute all who have served. Thank YOU for your service. The people of America appreciate your service even if the damned Federal government doesn’t. May God bless each of you on active duty, and especially when you join the ranks of all who have served before your time at arms — the American Veterans. We hope this day which has been set aside to honor your service is a truly blessed day.

Please enjoy these videos.

Salute!
