Michelle Bridges – Lonelier than ever and without a community of support, I was hopeless and unsure I would ever heal. I am a US Navy Veteran and the spouse of a Gulf War Veteran. On my best days, I am unstoppable, goal-driven, and determined that no one else will follow in my footsteps alone. Mentoring for TLWH is a great way to continue to serve and walk alongside others. I have found both joy and hope. I invite you to join me on this journey to heal our wounded souls. Some of my story is featured in the documentary, Wounded Heroes. I facilitate a woman Veterans group called Veteran Velocity Visits and I am training to become a leader for Reboot Combat Recovery classes. Previously, I served on the board of the Veteran Garden Project. I will challenge you to grow outside your comfort zone and make friends with your courage because we need you in this fight to end Veteran suicide. I promise it’s worth it!
