David A. Jones wrote on the Chapters: Wichita Falls wall: The Veterans Freedom Retreat is looking for US Military Veterans, diagnosed with PTS, to attend an 8-day retreat at a Bed & Breakfast Ranch located just north of Fort Worth for March 12-19, 2017. Our previous retreat was held in October 2016 and the data indicated a decrease of PTS stress by 48 percent for the participants. There is no charge for the veterans with PTS nor to their partner/spouse. The retreat includes equine, massage, art, mask and yoga therapy. Professional counseling, by experienced PTS counselors, will be provided daily for six days during the retreat. For more information contact me or go to Veteransfreedomreteat.org.

Karen Self (Lyons) wrote on the Chapters: Wichita Falls wall: I've added a couple of pictures from Thanksgiving. This year my family participated in the Operation Thanksgiving program with Sheppard AFB. We invited two airmen to spend the day with us on Thanksgiving. I have to say it was the best Thanksgiving I have ever had. With family members and the two airmen there was a total of 7 military members and veterans sitting at the dinner table that day. What a blessing.
