This R & R is specifically for Cadre/Staff and family. As these men and women provide care for the wounded, injured and ill they often suffer from compassion fatigue and/or secondary PTSD. Just like the people they are ministering to, they need a break from time to time. This weekend in the Hill Country is designed with that in mind.
Guests travel to Fredericksburg, TX on Friday for a weekend of relaxing and having fun. Attendees arrive sometime after 3 pm Friday, check into their lodging and later meet for dinner at a local church. Saturday activities are entirely up to the guests. They are free to explore the town, attend the movies, tour the museum and art galleries, etc., or just hang out for the weekend. They are encouraged to attend a local church Sunday prior to returning home. Lodging and meals are provided by Wounded Warriors at Nebo in conjunction with local churches. Admission to the Fritztown Cinema and the National Museum of the Pacific War is provided to those interested by Wounded Warriors at Nebo. Space is limited so check with the WTB Chaplain’s office to sign up. There should also be a sign up sheet at the Warrior and Family Support Center.
