BENEFITING: PUGILISTIC OFFENSIVE WARRIOR TACTICS INC
THIS UNIQUE CAMPAIGN --OUR FIRST TIME EVER ASKING FOR WIDESPREAD COMMUNITY SUPPORT-- RAN FROM NOVEMBER 11 – JANUARY 2, 2014. THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO SO GENEROUSLY SUPPORTED THIS CAUSE!
Pugilistic Offensive Warrior Tactics (P.O.W) is a research-based peer-to-peer program that helps re-integrate veterans back to civilian life. Through MMA conditioning, yoga and peer-to-peer support, P.O.W teaches Veterans and Active Military to honor their bodies and warriors spirits while embracing the principles of camaraderie, accountability, support, service, self-improvement, positive thinking and excellence.
P.O.W provides a safe, healthy and supportive community that empowers veterans to take control of their lives one smart choice at a time. POW directly addresses common but potentially devastating post-service-related challenges include PTSD, social anxiety, depression, loneliness and more. We know that because participants (our “Crew”) get in shape, cease abuse of drugs and alcohol, find employment and become active peer role models for each other.
And because we receive amazing feedback like this:
“What you’ve done is create something beautiful. A collection of warriors, who have spent their lives defending something greater than themselves have now found the same camaraderie they had when they served. I’m honored to be a part of this ‘crew’, and I’m anxiously awaiting my return.”
“Thank you for giving me that purpose and self motivation again in life, first time in three years after my injuries in Iraq that my family is seeing a mental change for the good! I’m proof this program works and will continue through the physical pain to reach myself again.”
“Brother, I want to thank you for your support, patience, mentorship and the creation of P.O.W. Today I'm alive, I have the job of my dreams, and I'm physically, spiritually and mentally stronger than I've ever been in my life. Today as I ran on the beach, shadow boxed and meditated, I was blissfully shocked to realize how memories of POW training and camaraderie have begun to replace terrible ones from the past.”
“POW is the link between the unspoken struggle only the members of the Armed Forces can understand and the path to what we call peace. We get to fight together instead of alone.”
WE MUST raise awareness and funding to ensure P.O.W is continues to be available. JOIN US. Give a little. Give a lot. Spread the word. And stay in touch. Because things are going change for Veterans and Active Military and you’re going to want to be here to see it happen.
