COL Douglas Hedman is the Wisconsin Army National Guard’s state support chaplain and administrator for the Strong Bonds Program.

Strong Bonds, a relationship education and skills training initiative, is a unit-based, chaplain-led program that helps unit commanders build individual resiliency by strengthening the Army and Air Force family. The events are typically held from Friday night to midday Sunday at a resort setting, at no cost to the service member or family.

The Wisconsin Air National Guard also offers the Strong Bonds Program, with several events planned for couples, families and individuals through September.
