    If you think your transition out of the military is big...

    If you think your transition out of the military is big...

    We're back!
    Deavon and I go right into discussing our recent life changes that led to us being off the air and how they led us to recording yet again.  We dive into the idea that our transition out of the military was almost a decade ago at this point and looking back it seems less of a challenge than our more recent ones.
    The conversation is pretty freeform, but should be enjoyable!

    Friday Formation - My Journey in Texas Helping After Hurricane Harvey

    Friday Formation - My Journey in Texas Helping After Hurricane Harvey

    A little late in sharing this story, but I'm happy I got to tell it.  I got to serve next to amazing Americans who all on their own volition drove and flew down to Texas to help in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.  I'm truly honored that I got to join the teams from Mountain Primal Meat Co. and Merging Vets with Players in bringing aid to the Beaumont, TX area.
    Deavon runs the interview on this one, and we cover:
    What led up to my decision to drive down to Texas with no idea where I was going, and how I got somewhere I could be effective. The efforts and victories of the Mountain Primal crew and the team from Merging Vets with Players. The turnout of "regular" Americans coming out of the woodwork to help their neighbors. What I'd do differently if something like this happened again and I wanted to help.

    Nate Boyer & Denver Morris - Merging Vets with Players

    Nate Boyer & Denver Morris - Merging Vets with Players

    In this episode I'm joined by two veterans:  1) Nate Boyer, a US Army veteran and Special Forces soldier followed a path through football, playing for the Texas Longhorns and then a single pre-season game with the Seattle Seahawks, and 2) Denver Morris, a fellow Marine infantry veteran from 2/7 and Program Coordinator for the Los Angeles branch of Merging Vets with Players (MVP).
    Nate, along with his co-founder Jay Glazer, started MVP with a mission "designed to address challenges that many combat veterans and professional athletes face when transitioning their service/professional life towards a new mission in their civilian life."  They do this by challenging its members with group fitness classes and fostering peer-to-peer support among the team.   Denver, MVP's first success story, joined them very early on and was their first employee.
    In the interview we discuss:
    The loss of identity when leaving the service and getting past it Nate's belief that anything is possible. Denver's brush with suicide and journey through homelessness How Denver met Nate and joined the MVP team The successes they've both had as well as their favorite success stories coming out of their program

    Veteranology 33 - Interview with Dan Helmer

    Veteranology 33 - Interview with Dan Helmer

    Our guest today is Army veteran Dan Helmer.  Dan began his Army career at West Point and after receiving his commission was assigned to the 4th Infantry Division, 1st Battalion 68th Armor Regiment, right after they had just invaded Iraq.  A lot of his service story will come up early in the interview so I don’t want to spoil anything, but I do want to highlight that he was instrumental in creating the Counter Insurgency Academy that would then change our strategies in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Dan is now living in Virginia, where he continued his service in the Army reserves, and on top of it all is now running as the democratic candidate for Virginia’s 10th congressional district.
    Two topics Dan made sure we hit during his interview were why it's important for veterans to run for office, and why we need a new set o veteran democrats in congress.
    We get to spend a good time listening to his ideas on leadership, problem solving in the military and how it translates elsewhere, and what he's planning on bringing to congress.
    Dan's Book Recommendation:  Cicero
    If you'd like to learn more about Dan's campaign and or would like to help him our with a campaign contribution, you can do so at HelmerforCongress.com.
