Sugati, LLC offers national resources and publications on healing and recovery to make a positive difference in people's lives. Co-owner and US Veteran Terri Spahr Nelson noted, "We know there are many persons who suffer greatly after a traumatic event and we hope that our resources will give them hope in their recovery." The publications include specialized resources for active duty military, veterans, their families and professionals who support them. Sugati has distributed tens of thousands of copies of their publications with amazing feedback, including one Commanding General who said their Leadership Guide was one of the best publications he had seen on the topic. This year brought two additional accomplishments: In January, Sugati was given a contract by Joining Forces and the National Association of Social Workers to provide a national webinar on military sexual assault. Most recently, Sugati was named a semi-finalist in the "Citi Salutes: Realizing Your Dream Business Plan Competition." This is a national competition for veteran-owned small business owners/entrepreneurs sponsored by Citi Bank and IMVF. "We are so grateful for this opportunity and hope our proposal for a social media makeover (including a new website) and delivery of our publications to all VA Medical Centers and US military installations will be a dream come true" added Spahr Nelson. 
 
For free resources, webinars and downloads from around the nation for veterans and professionals working with veterans, you can go to the Sugati Publications Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/sugatipublications
