Silouan graduated from Vanderbilt University and then accepted a commission in the United States Marine Corps. While serving in the Marines, Silouan was involved in a jet training accident. In the ejection, Silouan's back was broken and his co-pilot tragically killed. This horrible event and the complications that followed led to the development of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD. He was disability discharged and then had to learn to put hislife back together. It began with a two-year motorcycle journey where he learned to live. He then devoted the rest of his life to service and helping others overcome trauma. He has written three books, “The Ladder UPP”, “Who Am I?”, and “Sycamore Hill”.

Course Objectives

No officer hurt!, No veteran hurt!, a stronger community and more resilient police department.

This two day training module is taught by a veteran who has worked with veterans and police officers on issues of transition and service for almost a decade. A survivor of a tragic jet crash as a US Marine and someone who overcame severe PTSD, he understands personally the kind of issues veterans face coming home and how to respond to them.

More and more veterans are coming home to our communities. While many have a healthy transition, others face a myriad of difficulties from unemployment, depression, PTSD and in some cases, destructive behavior such as domestic violence, suicide, and other disturbances.

This class will prepare your officers to better respond to veterans while making themselves more resilient. Combat veterans and police officers have similar lifetime rates of conditions like PTSD, and a resilient police department is the best way to prepare to respond to veterans.

  • Understand the difficulties veterans face in the transition home
  • Understand how PTSD develops and manifests itself in veterans
  • Understand how to defuse threatening situations with veterans
  • Understand why resilient officers better respond to veterans in distress
  • Create a culture of resiliency and pro-active community awareness of veteran's issues
  • Investigate the connection between suicide, PTSD, and the traumas of service
  • Better understand the mindset of a veteran whose head is still on the battlefield
  • Learn tools for helping veterans and first responders make healthy transitions from conditions of trauma
  • Create a culture of resiliency and pro-active community awareness of veteran and first responder issues
  • Learn and use simple peer support tools that can be used in your department and your community
  • The feedback from this training has been remarkable:
    "As a chief and former trainer at the Pennsylvania Police Academy, I can say this is one of the top 5 classes I have ever attended."

    "Eye-opening. I am better equipped to respond to veterans and look out for my fellow officers."

    "This is a class every officer needs to attend."

    "I never fully appreciated the difficulty many veterans have coming home until this class"
