Spiritual Connections

Groups from a variety of spiritual/faith traditions are working to make life better for combat veterans through engagement with their souls and with others of like mind and heart.

Soldiers Heart

Drawing on a variety of spiritual traditions, this group, originally founded by Dr. Edward Tick, author of the powerful book, War and the Soul, among others, provides a variety of services, including retreats, ongoing supports, and even guided trips to former battle sites (e.g., in Vietnam)

Operation Restored Warrior

Arising out the Christian tradition, yet open to persons of all faiths, this program, run by veterans, prides itself in intense retreats in the Colorado mountains, followed by an extended support system of combat veterans seeking to live out their spiritual lives faithfully.
