    Be Your Own Advocate with Derek Griffin

    Be Your Own Advocate with Derek Griffin

    "No one will ever be as invested in your success or your health as much as you."
    What do you do when you find out that your life isn't going to go the way you thought it would?
    Even more, what do you do when you find out that the time you have left is limited?
    In this episode, Mike and Trevor talk to Derek Griffin, a Green Beret who was diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2019 about the cause of his cancer, his treatments, how his diagnosis affected his relationships, and the importance of being your own advocate when it comes to your health.
    Derek also discussed how The Green Beret Foundation played a crucial role in helping him to get into the San Antonio Polytrauma Transitional Rehabilitation Program to regain his cognitive functions after the effects of his death and resuscitation.
    Much like Agent Orange with our Vietnam Vets, and "Gulf War Syndrome" for those who served during Persian Gulf conflict, burn pits have been directly linked to an increase in cancers amongst service members and veterans. Visit the VA Airborne Hazards and Burn Pit Exposures website to learn more.

Essential Information for Transitioning Miliy

If you are transitioning, or currently in the military - you will transition someday- listen to this podcast. Mike and Trevor are the real deal. They have been through and are going through the process. The emotions are raw and genuine, and the advice and information are excellent- from their network of expert advisors. My favorite podcast.

The premise is good….

I wanted to really like this podcast. The premise is sound and there is definitely a need for it. Where it falls short is that it seems to be narrowly focused and somewhat self-aggrandizing towards the EOD community. The hosts should apply their experience and sea stories to a broader transitioning audience vice exclusively the “operator” community.

They would also do well to remember that they introduced themselves in the first few podcasts, so their repetitive introductions to each guest come at the expense of the listeners who don’t need to be reminded about Mike’s internship in DC or that Trevor likes the Honor Foundation. We got it - Mike was Trevor’s first Chief. Move on and actually get to vet….all vets.

Keeping up with my tribe

A great podcast for any military member past or present for transitioning out of the military or who may be early in their military career looking down the road. Mike and Trevor talk about things that are important to me. If they cover things I know already, then I’m reassured that I’ve made the best decisions for me and my family. Super stoked for more episodes!!!
