Organized by Never Alone-Widows of Heroes, women participating in the retreat came from across the country, having lost their husbands in the last five years. Their wounds have yet to heal on their road to recovery. Some lost their husbands to service-related training accidents, and in the line of duty. Several lost their husbands to cancer. For others, the traumatic experiences their husbands were routinely exposed to ended up taking a deadly toll by committing suicide.
