Purpose through pain
First off, thanks for all you guys do. My name is Todd and I am a united states army combat veteran. I deployed to Afghanistan in 2012. Upon returning home I went on a downward spiral of drugs and alcohol. I ended up homeless broke and all alone in the shelter at the VA. It all came to a head for me when I locked myself in a hotel room with drugs, alcohol and the intention to end my own life. I chose to get help that day. It was then that I had an epiphany that if I could just translate my training from the military to the civilian world I could win. That is what I have done since. Its been three years now and I am sober, I own a business, I speak at events, I have a book coming out this fall called “Trained to win- how to conquer the battlefield at home”, and I have one more semester left of college. It’s all because of that resiliency the military instilled in me. That fight. That never quit attitude. All I care about is helping our veterans. Thank you for allowing me to share a little of my story and for all you do for our veterans. I will #neverquit.
