    S3 Ep7 - Finding Purpose in Bridging Gaps (Special Guest: Eddie Dunn)

    S3 Ep7 - Finding Purpose in Bridging Gaps (Special Guest: Eddie Dunn)

    Veterans are really good at making connections, so it should come as no surprise that we found a Veteran who is finding his own post-military purpose in doing just that - helping Veterans bridge the gap between their military service and the civilian workforce.

    Eddie Dunn was one of the instrumental minds behind the 100,000 jobs mission, the most successful Veteran hiring initiative to date!

    Tune in to hear Eddie's story, as well as what he tells his consulting clients about finding meaningful work after the military.

    Note: We did experience a few audio issues during the show, so toward the end, you may hear a few blips due to the audio and connection issues.

    S3 Ep6 - Finding Purpose in Post-Traumatic Growth (Special Guest: Mike Nasche)

    S3 Ep6 - Finding Purpose in Post-Traumatic Growth (Special Guest: Mike Nasche)

    PTSD. Just the mere mention of the term can create thoughts in our minds we'd just as soon forget.

    Thankfully, there is life on the other side of a traumatic event, and that life - it's called post-traumatic growth.

    Check out this episode of the show where Aaron interviews Mike Nasche, Executive Director of Impact A Hero. At Impact A Hero, Mike is finding not only his own purpose in post-traumatic growth, but is helping other Veterans find theirs as well.

    For immediate help in dealing with a personal crisis, please call 1-800-273-8255 and Press 1, chat online at VeteransCrisisLine.net/Chat, or text 838255. Veterans Crisis Line responders are trained to listen and offer support to Veterans in crisis and their loved ones.
