Home Base - 2015 @ Fenway

July 30, 2015  •  2 Comments

The Home Base Program is dedicated to healing the “invisible wounds” of war for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans and their families. The goal at Home Base is to help veterans and their families regain the lives they once had. The clinical staff provides caring treatment each day for Post Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury, depression, relationship challenges, military sexual trauma, substance abuse, and the stress and anxiety that result from wartime military service.
 

 
 

Following the 2007 World Series win, Red Sox players and owners met with wounded veterans at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, and learned of the medical challenges many of our returning Veterans were facing. Red Sox Chairman Tom Werner made a commitment, following this 4-hour visit, to partner with the Massachusetts General Hospital in order to address the signature “invisible wounds of war.”  Home Base is the first partnership of its kind in the nation between an Academic Medical Center and a Major League Baseball team.  
 

In 2015, Home Base will transition from a Boston based regional program to National Center of Excellence for the Invisible Wounds of War. They will launch a "first in the nation" two week intensive clinical program for veterans that will extend the reach of this program to any Post 9-11 Veteran in the United States.
 

It's been an honor to donate my services to such a meaningful cause - Semper Fi!

These photos and all of the photos Jim took at the event came out amazing, but that is no surprise! Jim continues to capture extraordinary moments through images that evoke emotion and capture the true essence of the day. We are so grateful that Jim continues to share his talents with us and is a part of the Home Base Team!

This is an awesome program that you are involved with. We need to continue to do work like this in support of the men and women who sacrifice everything, including their lives, to ensure that we get to enjoy our freedom.
