“I am so thankful to have found Warriors at Ease. After retiring from the Air Force after 26 years of service I felt a little lost and rudderless. Then I learned about Warriors at Ease and I was fortunate enough to take the training. Through this organization, I have met some wonderful friends and feel like I have found a new home.”
- Col. Carolyn Patrick, USAF (Retired)
