Today we are back with Geoff Speyrer, who served 12 years in the Army as a combat engineer and Infantryman. While deployed to Iraq he was a lead vehicle gunner on an EOD escort and security team as well as on route clearance.
When returning home from Iraq Geoff didn’t realize or understand what PTSD and TBI was until he was so deep into addiction and selling drugs that he didn’t even know how to ask for help nor did he really want it. For the next 13 years Geoff would suffer from suicide attempts, incarceration after incarceration, different institutions and 5.5 years of being a fugitive. It wasn’t until the last incarceration that he found his fire for life & decided that he would invest as much energy into rebuilding his life as he did destroying it. Geoff knew he was destined for more than that pit of hell he was living in. Buckle up!
