This retreat is designed specifically for military and first responder couples (active duty, reserve & veteran). Our marriages are not like civilian marriages. We face different challenges that require us to be more resilient. You will walk away with a better appreciation of your differences and tools to make those differences work in your favor, particularly when it comes to communication. The retreat is led by retired Marine officer, Hoke M. Rose and his wife, Cristi Silverberg-Rose.
