More U.S. veterans have lost their lives to suicide than in all the battlefields in our country’s history. Coping with the trauma of the experiences of war can be an insurmountable goal. The Veteran’s Administration has instituted many programs to help veterans heal from their physical and mental scars. But the spiritual trauma is virtually untouched.  Without spiritual health, life can seem hopeless. But there is hope—Reboot Combat Recovery.

 Reboot Combat Recovery is not another support group. Reboot Combat Recovery is a 12 week course designed to help combat veterans recover from the assaults on their spiritual well being. There are currently only two places offering this course in Minnesota, one in Minneapolis and one in Grandy (just north of Cambridge).

 River Valley Christian Church will be hosting this course free of charge to combat veterans and their spouses. The course will be facilitated by Chuck Pearce, a Vietnam combat veteran. Ken Warfield and Paula Neu are also part of the leadership team. The course will include a free dinner and child care, if needed. 

The course will run from 6 – 8 p.m. on Tuesday nights, beginning on Sept. 10. Get more information at the website,
