Brentwood Reboot Combat Recovery

Most agree – we owe a great debt to our veterans.

Upon returning, most veterans assimilate back into the community well.

Many find that transition difficult due to combat trauma.

 

Jim Bonds will address the July 12th Brentwood Rotary Club about his involvement with Reboot Combat Recovery

Brentwood Baptist Church is one of 160 Reboot host sites throughout the nation offering this faith-based, 12-week course to assist veterans overcome trauma-related issues. More than 4,000 veterans have graduated from Reboot nationally.

 

The course covers areas such as overcoming guilt, the roots of trauma, & a restored soul.  Veterans teach the course and the overall objective is to reduce the high rate of suicide, divorce, & depression among our veteran community.

Jim has seen first-hand the progress made during Brentwood’s 6 semesters and how Reboot differs from other programs aimed at veterans.  

 

The purpose of this presentation is increase awareness of Reboot’s availability so that more veterans in Brentwood and the surrounding communities might seek help.
