I had an amazing time this weekend with my new found “Band of Sisters”!! I didnt really know what I was getting myself into when I was heading to Port Aransas a few days ago. I was taking a leap of faith by stepping out of my comfort zone. The comradery, beach, deep sea fishing trip, talks, laughter, tears of understanding and tears of joy are just a little bit of our weekend. I walked into a house full of strangers and walked out with a new family. It was a roller coaster ride of emotions but I have a newly found comfort in knowing that I am apart of #OATHWarriorWives. This amazing group of ladies will always be there to support me as I will for them. I am forever grateful to OATH and Warrior Wives for what they are doing in so many lives. I love each and every one of these ladies for their hearts, compassion, “non-judgement” and their struggles!!! I realized that I am “me” because of my struggles. My struggles are nothing to be ashamed of. I am stronger than I know. Y’all opened my eyes and for the first time I was able to see myself in a different light. I came home with a deep appreciation and understanding for my husband and his struggles. There really are no wo words that will fully express what I am feeling but I gave it a good try!!! Lol #OATHWarriorWives #paintisforgiving #positivegang #golive
I am the wife of a member of OATH, Inc. Scott and I have been married for 6 years and he has been a retired veteran for a little over a year. Lots has changed in our life, and specifically his life over the last year. He met JT in September and soon after joined. Scott got the opportunity to go on his first hunt with this organization the weekend of January 22. He was selected for a Red Stag. He shot the stag and it was recorded, to air on TV later this year. I can’t even begin to express my gratitude for an organization like this and how much it really helps our veterans. To get a group of like minded individuals together to participate in a sport that is so much of who he is, is incredible. I have seen my husband change over the last year and after that hunt he came home and I started to see the old him. He had an amazing experience and it lifted him out of a rut so to speak. Even though this was his first hunt, it has given him irreplaceable memories. Thank you OATH, Inc. for doing what you do.
When I retired 6 years ago, my thoughts were to close the doors, mind my own business, take care of myself and my own, I didn’t really want to be involved with any veteran groups or organizations. I was so tired and torn from seeing the negative publicity some of these so called groups were bringing upon themselves, at the cost of all of my brothers and sisters, some of which are no longer here with us, giving the ultimate sacrifice, so we can partake in the freedoms we enjoy day in and day out. If it wasn’t for a few veteran’s at a local VFW whom sparked my interest in the Faith based organization, centered around not only Faith, but Family and the Community, I wouldn’t have given second thought. I am proud to be part of such an organization, that is truly inspired and driven FOR the veterans of our great country. Definitely proud of them, and would do anything for them and the members of the community that give back to our veterans, some of whom served themselves. True professionalism is a complete understatement…. Speechless..
What an amazing organization! From the start of the hunt I went on it was like I knew everyone there for a lifetime already. I had an amazing time that I will never forget and am looking forward to many more experiences. The world is truly blessed to have folks like yall in it. A big thanks to your families as well for sacrificing there time with you as you are away with us. I can’t put into words what it means to be apart of the oath family. Thanks again!
If I could put into words the relief I felt after my first trip with OATH INC. I would probably be writing novels rather than review’s. On a serious note, this is one of the best and most supportive organization that I have ever placed myself with. The things we did and the stories we shared during our time on this last hunt seemed to have helped me more than the last few years I spent talking to a shrink. At first I thought it would just be a good time, but after my trip I realized it was therapeutic. You can’t beat the brotherhood and you can’t match the level of support that OATH provides. With all that said, I will always feel that I am in debt to OATH even though the organization is based on repaying a debt to those who fight for our freedom. Thank you OATH INC. Your support means more to me than I can express.
I recently participated in one of the OATH Hunting Excursions down at the 444 Ranch in Yancey, Texas. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate this opportunity, and how much I needed this outing. Setting in the deer blind when it’s totally quiet, gave me time to clear my head of all the stress of daily life and Military life combined. Furthermore, I had the opportunity to hang out with other Disabled Military Veterans who have lived that life, and understand what it’s like. We were able to share stories; good and bad, that I feel the standard individual would not understand. It was like meeting an old friend that I haven’t seen in many years.
The food was great, even though some Marines can’t handle the heat (Spicy), the company was better. I just wanted to take the time to tell you in my own words, thank you for what you do. Thank you to the 444 Ranch and OATH; well done and strong work. You have a Brother for life, all you need to do is call.
The recent trip that OATH sent me on to the Chilo Fish Camp was one of the most rewarding and awesome experiences of my life. The team members from OATH, and the guys who set up the event, and all the sponsors, were awesome. I have never felt so humble nor have I ever felt so proud. What a great organization.
