Fellow Rangers,
The US Mountain Ranger Association will host VALOR Clinic Foundation's Veterans Unstoppable retreat program beginning on March 29 and ending on April 3, 2020. The retreat will be held at Camp Jabez north of Blairsville, Georgia.

Veterans Unstoppable (VU) is a confidential, no-cost program and service to warriors and their loved ones facing post traumatic stress injury and other invisible wounds of military service. Veterans Unstoppable is an individually tailored 5 step life skills development program that fosters healthy life adjustments for Veterans. This addresses differences in each Veterans experiences – we recognize there isn’t a "one size fits all solution to Veteran reintegration. Veterans Unstoppable guides Veterans through the transition process in a supportive and safe environment free from distractions.

5 Step Program: Phase
1: Managing exposures and their effects Phase
2: Reducing Social Conflict Phase
3: Finding Closure to reduce stress and anxiety
Phase 4: Finding Purpose and direction in life by making a plan
Phase 5: Recreational Therapy through Fly Fishing

Participants will arrive at Camp Jabez around 1800 on Sunday evening and begin the process of healing by interacting with other veterans, receiving focused instruction ,and working through tough issues with the guidance of the VALOR staff consisting of SGM(R) Mark Baylis (Ranger Class 10-82) and Vietnam Vet Glen Lippincott. The participants will graduate and be dismissed around 1800Friday evening. Everyone is expected to remain at the retreat location for the duration of the program. All food and lodging will be provided.

Personal Note: I am a recent graduate of VU-17. The experience was truly life changing. Not only do I feel more confident in dealing with my personal struggles, but I also feel more able to talk to vets in crisis in a way that will lead to a positive outcome. If you or a veteran you know is STRUGGLING and WILLING, please, share this invitation to be a part of Veterans Unstoppable - GA.

Message: I have been asked to help find a good home for a three year old female Lab mix as a companion for a veteran with special needs. The dog is not a “certified” service dog nor is it certified for the blind. However, the owner really wants to find a home for her with a veteran. The dog is house broken and spayed. For more information contact Chuck Macklin at 770-355-5220.

Message: Rangers,
Our electrician had a conflict and can't go, so I have one seat open for a ride to Kevin's House in Ohio this weekend. We are leaving Friday morning (Dec 27) and will return Monday Evening (Dec 30). This would be a great opportunity to work off all those extra groceries consumed this holiday season. Call or text me if interested at 706-400-2765.
