Heroes to Heroes provides a lifeline for American veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan and suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Groups of PTSD sufferers are given the experience of a lifetime during journeys to Israel where the purpose is to have participants motivate, inspire, teach and support one another as they are exposed to the sights and sounds of the Holy Land. This approach has had a very high degree of success in helping vets recover from PTSD. Judy founded Heroes to Heroes in March 2010. Full information about the organization can be found at their website: www.heroestoheroes.org
