Marriage Retreat

This past week I had the opportunity to lead in a marriage retreat for our Junior Enlisted Soldiers. Wow, we had a great time! It was a Brigade event so I had the privilege to work with three other Chaplains. We had over 100 couples there for the event.

We held it at the Holiday Inn Riverwalk, San Antonio, TX. When we were not in our training sessions the participants had the opportunity to walk around the very picturesque Riverwalk. The picture above is from our time on the Riverwalk. The Riverwalk hosts many great stores to browse and restaurants to satisfy anyone’s taste buds. We went on the Riverboat tour and enjoyed learning about the Riverwalk area.

I think the best part of the whole thing is that we got to spend time with soldiers and help them to make their marriages the best they can be. All the soldiers I talked to got a lot out of the event. I look forward to doing another retreat where we can help our soldiers and give them some time to relax.
