Rev. Salois honored by veterans group, General Assembly

March 22, 2014

WOONSOCKET – He is United Veterans Council of Woonsocket Veteran of the Year for 2014, and the Rev. Philip G. Salois earned that tribute during a time of his life a world away from where he lives today.

It is the journey that Salois made, from being a soldier battling an enemy in Vietnam to his life’s work helping others cope with the same traumatic stresses he has experienced, that has members of the veterans’ community celebrating Salois in a new way. That was apparent in the R.I. House of Representatives this week, when veterans serving in the body stood to join the Vietnam veterans attending as guests in applauding Salois’ service. He has also been recognized by the state Senate for his work helping Vietnam veterans, their families and other victims of trauma to restart their lives.

How Salois became so well known in helping veterans cope with their experiences in war actually began in the same way so many of his peers ended up serving in Vietnam, and even in the nation’s previous wars.
