VETERANS’ CORNER: A look at retreats, camps for veterans, family members




Camp Hope introduces the outdoors to disabled veterans, enabling them to continue their rehabilitation doing things they loved before their injuries or illnesses. Camp Hope was started after the son of William and Galia White’s son, Christopher Neal White, a 23-year-old Marine, was killed in Iraq in 2006.

Chaps Vets


Established in 2004, Chap Vets has recently expanded to provide assisted activities and equine leaning for veterans. Chap Vets provides therapeutic riding, equine assisted activities, vocational rehabilitation and equine facilitated learning and psychotherapy opportunities for veterans receiving in-patient VA services.

These are just a few of the many retreats/camps available for military veterans and their families. Take the time to carefully research these and any other locations, as well as consulting with medical personnel.

AmVets welcomes new member Brandon Robertson, newly inducted into the U.S. Army.

Speak to you again next week.

Jim Vines is commander of AmVets Post 133 in Mineral Wells.
