“It’s not what’s WRONG, it’s what happened”

That statement is a lynchpin in the BCR construct.  So, what’s BCR?  BCR stands for Boulder Crest Retreat, one of two “get-aways” for first responders and combat vets that help them get right with themselves.

Boulder Crest is an extraordinary non-profit organization.  Straight from the statements in their official website (https://www.bouldercrestretreat.org), they “exist to solve the mental health crisis and to heal our military members, veterans, and their families dealing with PTSD and combat-related stress, so they can live productive, fulfilling, and service-oriented lives at home.”  And boy do they ever.

I am proud to be an alumnus of this organization.  I wear the dog-tag daily as a reminder of the long journey I joined them on just a few short weeks ago.  These folks are life changers.  If you haven’t already clicked on the link above – DO IT NOW.  Scroll through the services provided.  Please.  Chances are you know someone that could benefit from this organization.

I attended the Arizona Retreat, and took part in the Warrior PATHH program recently.  The PATHH stand for Progressive and Alternative Training for Healing Heroes.  It is a weeklong, fully-funded program to get first responders and combat veterans back on track, if they feel like they’ve lost a step, lost a piece of themselves, or just plain feel lost.

Two words from me: GAME CHANGER.

I can’t give away any of the curriculum and I am trying to take care not to give too much away.  The links I will supply on this blog page should give one all they need to make a decision that could change their lives (and the lives of their loved ones).

Here’s what the TODAY SHOW recently presented:

I’m not paid by this organization or anything like that, but my family and I will now certainly volunteer whenever we can to get the word out.  If after reading this stuff and you get the “feels” in the same way, PLEASE share.
