Giving a Hug


TAPS is always there to provide care and support, but we also recognize that sometimes hugs need to come from close by.....neighbors and members of your local community.

TAPS can provide you with a directory of bereavement and trauma resources and support groups in your local area. From information provided by you, we can provide a customized listing of groups and resources which you can then review, research and make a decision to participate at your convenience.

Through this directory you can find, in addition to the services provided by TAPS, support close to home. We are honored to link you with your neighbors!

Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging
Reviewed by Maj. Jerry Landrum, MA, MMAS, US Army, Written by Sebastian Junger

TAPS Magazine | War correspondent and documentarian Sebastian Junger’s latest book deals with the failure of American society to reintegrate American soldiers returning home from combat. Junger is most known for his book “The Perfect Storm: A True Story of Men Against the Sea” and his film documentary “Restrepo.” Given his deep connection with soldiers and experience as a war correspondent, Junger’s perspective is based on raw emotion and personal understanding. Taken a step further, many of his findings parallel the sense of isolation survivors encounter after losing a military hero and their deeply abiding need to belong again, a solution often found within their TAPS family.
