About the Event
A FREE Online Retreat for Women Addressing the Invisible Wounds of War.
Women veterans and their supporters often suffer from invisible wounds from their experiences with military
service, including Post Traumatic Stress (PTS), Military Sexual Trauma (MST), Military Moral Injury (MMI) along
with other ailments including drug and alcohol abuse. These experiences are not unique to one generation but
are instead intergenerational and include generations of all wars, present and past—Active Duty, Veterans,
Dependents, Family, and Friends.
