“War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself”
~ John Stuart Mill~
It is our goal, that on each voyage, our Veterans come together as Brothers and Sisters once again; through shared experiences, find emotional, physical, and spiritual healing; that they may return having found the beauty of this life above and below the surface.

What Is A Valkyrie Voyage?
Valkyrie Voyages are all inclusive retreats on live-aboard ships ranging from 4 days to one week. Veterans participating in a retreat agree to the following three conditions:
Willing to re-experience camaraderie. A concept heard by many but understood by few; camaraderie within the military is hard to explain and almost impossible to replicate but we succeed where others have failed. By creating a group dynamic that is interdependent amongst participants, we experience a sense of humor unique to each group and a willingness to reconnect as you once did in your past service.
