JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Wounded Warrior Project and the Wildcatter Ranch announced today that they will host 16 wounded warriors as part of WWP's Project Odyssey program to combat post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Project Odyssey brings together veterans with PTSD and readjustment challenges for activities that offer healthy support in the healing process.

"The ultimate goal is for each participant to return home with a new set of coping skills and exercises to deal with the emotions and behavior associated with PTSD," stated John Roberts, National Service Director for Wounded Warrior Project.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can result following a traumatic event and is quite prevalent among combat veterans. PTSD can manifest itself in numerous ways including upsetting memories of the event, flashbacks, nightmares and intense physical reactions to reminders of the traumatic events. Warriors may experience a pounding heart, rapid breathing, nausea, muscle tension and sweating.

This is a sacred ritual rarely ever performed for members outside their tribe. The ceremony welcomes the warrior home and honors his or her status as a Warrior.

VA Readjustment Counseling Service staff has partnered with WWP in the Odyssey Projects. Vet Center Staff is present to support the therapeutic components of the program. Private and group sessions with Vet Center counselors and staff are available throughout the time at the ranch. All these activities come together to help establish a foundation of trust wh
