“Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country’s cause. Honor, also, to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field and serves, as he best can, the same cause.”
― Abraham Lincoln
Welcome to Heal Our Heroes. We seek to achieve our vision by serving, supporting and strengthening military warriors, families, leaders, chaplains and caregivers, and wounded warriors through offering training, services and resources which promote resiliency and relational health throughout the deployment cycle. These services include retreats, counseling professionals and print and media resources.
As citizens of the United States of America, we stand on the shoulders of the men and women in uniform that protect us from harm from foreign soils and from enemies within. Our service members are prepared to lose life and limb to protect our basic freedoms, while they spend time in strange places away from their own families.
When their tour of duty has ended and these men and women transition back into civilian life they may face some challenges. How they approach these challenges will determine if their transition is a smooth and effective one, or it can be one with the many pitfalls that veterans have experienced once they return home.
“Heal Our Heroes,” a group that is ran and organized by retired Vietnam Veteran, Bob Uber, is an organization whose mission is to provide the needs of veterans to allow them to effectively transition back into civilian life. The groups focus is to honor, heal and hire veterans.
Many of our veterans have been exposed to life and death situations in combat. These situations put our service members in a unique category. Coping with the aftermath of war can be trying to any service member’s psychological capacity. Veterans across this nation are suffering from homelessness, drug addiction, alcoholism and depression.
Organizations like “Heal Our Heroes” are a cornerstone in the transition process for returning veterans and thanks to the dedicated efforts of Mr. Uber and this organization, many veterans will see their opportunities for a smooth transition increase exponentially.
Heal Our Heroes Creed: We served our country together, therefore we can help heal each other.
Heal Our Heroes Mission: In an outdoor setting, we facilitate healing for our military through hunting, clay target shooting, hiking, fishing, small lake boating, campfires and group discussions. In this environment we seek our Creator, and look to chaplains and mentors to provide emotional and mental healing, renewal, rebuilding of relationships and renewed purpose to those we serve.
Heal Our Heroes seeks to build long lasting relationships with those we serve. Our veteran, mentor support groups see the individual and not the disability; seeking opportunities to open dialogue, share experiences and offer hope.
Heal Our Heroes will provide other printed resources “Combat Trauma Healing Manual” as well as network with other service providers to assist in more complex issues of Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) and Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI).
Heal Our Heroes when possible will provide these opportunities free of charge through available scholarships.
Heal Our Heroes will sponsor a few campaigns to get the local communities involved and to raise money for scholarships. We are sponsoring the 1st Annual High Point Military Appreciation Day September 13th at Festival Park.
Heal Our Heroes is organized exclusively for charitable purposes.
