Into the Wilds with Wounded Vets
New Holland Acres
It is the unseen side of War. Wounded soldier heroes return from combat and carry on their normal lives as before… or do they?
These are the heroes Whose War continues, a War fought every day, unseen inside their minds. For in addition to their bodily injuries, these heroes carry with them the terrible affects of traumatic stress and depression inflicted by the horrors of War and for Which there is no medicine.
But at a 410~acre Wilderness camp in northern Wisconsin, the Wounded Warriors in Action (WWIA) Foundation is bringing together these Purple Heart heroes from the Wars in iraq and Afghanistan for a few days of Work, play, learning, and socializing. The goal is to get these Veterans “back in action” as civilians by healing emotional Scars of War that cannot be readily seen.
