Finding Freedom Through Courage

Updated: 2 days ago

"When it comes to my life as a soldier, it hasn’t ended. I took an oath to protect my family and my country with no expiration date. I will always be a soldier.” - Will, Army Veteran"

How you supported Will through a time of medical uncertainty.

Will’s life has always been an adventure, fueled by his love for the outdoors and his free-spirited nature. He joined the Army in 1975 at the young age of 17 and retired after twenty years as an Army mechanic. During service, Will had the privilege of traveling across the globe to many cities that captured his heart. “When it comes to my career,” Will said, “I got to see a lot of the world. I love cultures, languages, traditions, and foods.”

Yet, as Will knows all too well, life continues to unfold in unpredictable ways. He may be facing another challenging chapter in his journey—one that requires long hospital stays and intensive medical treatment.

After learning about VGH through his VA primary care team, Will quickly embraced the sanctuary that VGH offers. He discovered the Guest House was not just a place to rest his head; it was a place to heal his heart. Like many of his fellow veterans, Will is also navigating the complexities of PTSD from traumatic experiences during and beyond military service. Because of you, Will can rely on services at VGH, preserving the sense of freedom he proudly cherishes.

Will describes VGH in one word love. “This place is always clean, and the people are always kind. I am offered a helping hand when I am not feeling my best.” With your support, Will finds strength in vulnerability, comfort in companionship, and solace in shared experiences.
