When I originally got a hold of Ron from the long walk home I was in a pretty dark mindset. I didn’t know how I was going to get back with my girls and it was driving me crazy. I talked with Ron about what was going on and he said he was willing to help. He said first I would have to complete three challenges. These challenges seemed simple enough but they were actually quite profound. They still help me daily reflect on my thoughts, my goals and what I’m grateful for. They remind me of the reasons why I keep pushing forward. Other exercises like sitting in silence kind of like meditation are very helpful and something I’ve added to my daily routine. Although they seem like small tasks they had a big impact on me. I’m thankful for getting in touch with Ron and a long walk home and the work that they do is invaluable to veterans like me.” ~ Richard Ayers
“I am an Army Veteran of six years, I did missions in 6 different countries over the course of one combat deployment and I was struggling with alcohol severely. Still functional I would like to claim, but we all know the truth. I spent a lot of time volunteering at schools before my downfall and enjoyed helping people every chance I got. When I heard of Ron and his organization I felt immediately obligated to do something, not only to help others to to fix myself. Between the program Ron has laid out, his mentorship and the ability for me to help others with their struggles I was able to truly focus on myself and what I felt I needed to do to be the man I once saw myself as. Ron’s work, truly turned my life around. He and Craig are two of the best people I know and it is truly an honor to have the opportunity to help them on their mission to help others.
