This is a Couples only event. It is open to All branches of the service, active duty wounded, injured and ill warriors in treatment and/or transition. Attendance is limited to 15 couples.
Couples will attend Chaplain and/or Guest Speaker led sessions aimed at identifying potential problems and how to avoid them. The entire weekend is intended to provide tools to strengthen relationships. In addition to the counseling sessions there will be enough free time for couples to practice some of the things covered in class. Food and lodging will be provided by Wounded Warriors at Nebo, Fredericksburg United Methodist Church and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Couples will arrive in Fredericksburg on Friday afternoon, check into their hotel and later meet at Fredericksburg United Methodist Church for dinner as a group. There will be a short ‘Meet and Greet’ session after dinner. Saturday, after breakfast at the hotel, couples will attend two sessions. The afternoon session will be over early enough to provide couples with a ‘Date Night’. Everyone will meet at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for dinner. There will be one final session Sunday morning.
Detailed schedule will be provided during the Meet and Greet.
