PTSD USA’s Warrior Groups


Warrior Groups are fellowships for combat veterans and their families to share their experiences, testimonies of healing, compassion and hope in overcoming the invisible wounds of war. Participants are required to be military combat veterans or family members of those who have served in combat and be willing to face the challenges of managing post-traumatic stress and related conditions.

This is not a treatment program, but rather a peer coaching and support program whose primary purpose is helping combat veterans find healing, balance and positive re-integration with their families and in society. In addition, The Warrior Family Support Groups exist to assist family members (spouse, parent, sibling, child, caretaker, etc.) of PTSD sufferers in understanding and healing from.

PTSD Foundation of America is committed to helping combat veterans suffering with PTSD find acceptance and healing for the invisible wounds of war. We have and continue to expand a network of individuals, churches, and other organizations to provide a “corps of compassion” in order to assist veterans and their families in dealing with the symptoms of PTSD. To the veterans and loved ones, Thank You for Your Service, Welcome Home and know that You Are Not Alone! You do not have to continue to carry the burdens of war on your own…we are here to help!

  • VETJOBS VetJobs is the leading Internet niche job board for reaching the 10.5 million military veterans currently in the work force, the 200 thousand active duty military personnel who transition each year, the over 400,000 members of the National Guard and Reserve who return to the United States each year from extended deployments, and their family members. VetJobs was established in 1999 following extensive research on job and resume sites catering to the military market. The research indicated there was a gap in sites which assisted employers in identifying the transitioning military and veteran candidate. VetJobs is operated by a seasoned management team of professionals to assist companies, recruiting firms and hiring authorities to successfully reach the military market. VetJobs is owned and operated by veterans for veterans. In January 2000, The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States exclusively sponsored and purchased ten percent of the company. Since then, VetJobs has garnered more veteran service organization endorsements than any other site. Major endorsements include the Vietnam Veterans of America, the Naval Reserve Association and the Veterans of Modern Warfare. www.vetjobs.com
