I would like to take the time to thank you for all that you did for me at camp. I am very appreciative. I told you I came to camp to look for peace. Instead I found the will and desire to keep fighting.
I've often wondered when looking at veterans that have come back from Vietnam and have lost everything. I've wondered what the difference was between me and them. In my mind it has always been my family. My family has kept me from doing things that would cause me harm. When I began having problems at home with my family, it caused me alot of concern. Feeling like a horrible father was making it easier for me to give up. I understand that it may not be my fault, but as a father it is still hard for me not to wonder if I've done something wrong.
Battledawgs gives warriors a family, people who care, and understand what we have been through. Just being around soldiers again. I've come to terms with alot of what I saw in Iraq. I was a soldier doing the right things. I made mistakes, some of which could have cost lives,, but it was with the best of intentions.
Thank you once again for all you did for me personally and for all of us. Please thank Dr. Deb for me. She and you have helped me remember things that I need to remember. Personal feelings that can never be expressed.
