Happy Memorial Day!

We’d like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to the men and women who bravely serve in our military. Your discipline and selflessness not only protect America’s citizens, but also serve as a reminder of the principals of honor and independence that our nation was founded on.


Memorial day is traditionally a time set aside to remember those who have died while serving their country, but there are thousands of men and women who return from their tour only to struggle with physical and mental trauma. Soldiers suffering at home deserve our attention as much as those who have lost heir lives.


The greatest tragedy to befall returning soldiers is to be forgotten as soon as they take off their uniform. In a time when they are most vulnerable and needing of human closeness, there are often barriers that keep our vets isolated and in pain. Sometimes it’s our society failing to give them the help they need. Sometimes it’s their inability to regain the intimacy they once had with their loved ones because of their injuries.


In that light we’d like to promote a project produced by our partners at The Sager Group entitled “Sex and Intimacy For Wounded Veterans; a Guide to Embracing Change.

Here’s to all our armed forces. We salute you.
