    Best of Team Never Quit - Char Westfall: Wife, Mom, Surviving Spouse of Navy SEAL Jacques Fontan, Author of A Beautiful Tragedy

    Best of Team Never Quit - Char Westfall: Wife, Mom, Surviving Spouse of Navy SEAL Jacques Fontan, Author of A Beautiful Tragedy

    In this week's episode, we highlight one of our most popular episodes as June marks the anniversary of Operation Redwing. Char's husband, Jacques Fontan, was one of nineteen servicemen killed when the helicopter he was in was shot down during Operation Redwing in Afghanistan (from which the film Lone Survivor is based.) As a result, she has written a book, A Beautiful Tragedy, in which she speaks openly about the anger and bitterness that experience birthed, and her battle to regain her life, to heal within, and to serve others in the process.
     
    In this episode you will hear:
     

    Jacques was killed when Char was only 29 years old.
    We heard car doors shut. And they came to the door in uniform. 
    I remember asking them, “So there’s still a chance?” and he couldn’t answer me.
    I’ve accepted that Jacques is gone, and he’s not coming back, but he’s not going away.
    I wanted to find somebody that would allow me to still respect and honor Jacques, and not just put him away on a shelf and act like that never happened.
    With my faith and my love for him, I saw how he was there hearing me through the darkest and hardest times.
    With faith in God, you can be mad and you can have your moments. God wants to hear that.
    If, on social media, you see the name of a fallen, look them up and get to know them personally. That helps them to never die.
    Losing Jacques wasn’t beautiful but what I’ve been able to make of the situation and make my life from it is the beauty in it.
    There’s a lot to think about when you start to date after the tragedy of losing your husband.
    We all want to honor the men who paid the ultimate price, but we also need to lift up the women they leave behind.
    I was lucky enough to find amazing love twice.

    Travis Howze: Comedian, Marine, Firefighter, Motivational Speaker, Author of Create Your Own Light

    Travis Howze: Comedian, Marine, Firefighter, Motivational Speaker, Author of Create Your Own Light

    Q: What does a Marine Corps veteran, former police officer, former firefighter, motivational speaker, and international touring comedian all have in common?
    A: They all live inside this week’s most entertaining guest, Travis Howze.
     
    Travis has come from a horrific experience as a firefighter when nine of his “brothers” were killed in a building collapse. He volunteered for the recovery team that pulled the bodies from the smoking building, causing him to sink deeply into post-traumatic stress and alcoholism.
     
    After Travis’ incredible defeat of his PTS, he has had a successful career in comedy and authored Create Your Own Light, an encouragement to stay in the fight and to never quit.
     
    In this episode you will hear:
     
    • If you’re gonna laugh at other people, you’d better be able to laugh at your damn self.
     
    • I don’t think about all the things I went through in my past. It’s a huge form of therapy for me not to.
     
    • Every day is a grind.
     
    • There are “character-building” days – you gotta recognize it, you gotta work on it, and you gotta build on it.
     
    • I have an older sister, so I did a lot of Barbie doll shit when I was young.
     
    • We’re more comfortable around our type of people because we have experienced some of the same things.
     
    • Non-stop fuckery – I had to have that.
     
    • If you knew what your tax dollars really went to, you wouldn’t pay f****n’ taxes.
     
    • I was a cop, when you could still be an effective police officer, and you didn’t have cell phone cameras ruining your life. You could actually go out and do your job.
     
    • There’s consequences to our actions, whether in law-enforcement or a civilian.
     
    • When the military deploys and they go over, they leave that shit over there. They bring some of that back, but they don’t have to live in the environment that f****d them up.
     
    • You can’t un-see, or un-taste, or un-smell a lot of things you go through in life.

    In this episode you will hear:
     

    In the U.S., we are unbelievable consumers of prostitution, and what comes with that is minors.
    You’re on deployment every time you walk out of the house.
    One in four women is sexually assaulted or sexually abused.
    The sex trafficking crime is so open. It’s openly advertised.
    There are people that think we should defund the police. I think more reasonable people think we should reallocate funds and figure out ways to do this better. There are people out there who can augment what law enforcement is lacking.
    The [funding] money is gonna go where the people demand it.
    [Our organization], All Things Possible does everything from simple counseling to freeing sex slaves.
    Find strength in simply being alive. 
    What comes off of your tongue – what you speak – is what you become.
    The term “Yahweh” is the sound of breathing.
    The mere fact that we, as humans, are breathing, we’re saying the name of our Creator every time we breathe.
    What is God’s name? The thing that gives breath to everything that lives.
    The first thing a baby says is that breath of life. 
    One family, who lost their son on the battlefield, found relief in the fact that the last breath their son took was the name of our creator.
    Find strength, find solace, and find peace, in that simple act of breathing. If you’re alive, you’re saying God’s name, and He’s there to help to you.

    Andrew Marr: Special Forces Green Beret, Warrior Angels Foundation Co-Founder, Author of Tales from the Blast Factory

    While the deep-rooted effects of traumatic brain injury are not yet fully understood, Andrew Marr, retired Special Forces, Green Beret, Warrior Angels Foundation Chairman and Co-Founder, as well as co-author of Tales from the Blast Factory, brings to life his actual experiences and transparency as it relates to bringing resolve to his brain injury issues, and coming back to a fulfilled life serving others with similar conditions. Listen in as Andrew gets real with our listening audience. He has an epic testimony to tell.
     
     In this episode you will hear:

     

    Andrew’s story is that of the principles of resiliency after traumatic brain injuries.
    You don’t have an emotional problem. You have a brain health problem.
    There are real solutions available.
    I lost complete control of all emotions.
    Depression, anxiety, alcoholism, and the inability to make good decisions were daily occurrences.
    Define what it is you want to be and start being that.
    I realized at that moment that I was of no value to him [my son] or my family in the condition that I was in.
    My mental state was going to ruin the things I said I loved in my life.
    3 promises I made to myself:1. I was going to return to be the man of my pre-injury status.2. I was going to find a way to come off all the medication I was told I would have to be on for the rest of my life.3. After accomplishing #1 & #2, I was going to spend the rest of my life helping other people just like myself to get thru it and get to the other side.
    Even though none of my problems were fixed yet, I now had a compass, direction, and destination.
    There are not words to describe what I experienced in that state of consciousness [with psychedelics).
    Any identification of self completely evaporated.
    I understood the interconnectedness of all things.
    I was engulfed in intelligent love.
    What the microscope is to biology and what the telescope is to astronomy, psychedelics is to human psychology.

    Ideas can be birthed in any setting; they’re limited to the imagination.
    You should always take pride in your country.
    Follow through.
    America was forged – Everything great was forged.
    It’s too bad that some establishments that have existed for over 100 years, are probably not going to make through this pandemic.
    Never question an order from a marine [in battle].
    If you don’t have pride in your country, then what do you really have?
    Just like great team guys, we busted out some bungie cords and tied a karaoke machine to our golf cart.
    Every great nation, has to have pride.
    You have your real life, and then you have your social media life.
    Being a marine is not as sexy as it looks on TV.
    There are criteria for what is considered a dive bar:Mainly whiskey selectionsA picture of Burt ReynoldsChristmas LightsSmokey & the Bandit memorabiliaA Juke BoxSpilled Beer Stains on the pool tableHuge “mints” in the urinalsNo separation between the urinal & the toilet
