    134: "Giving social support has helped increase my mental health and has led to all the success in my life." Healing Thru Service with Sgt Q
    Aaron Quinonez, aka Sgt Q, thought that the anxiety, hyper vigilance, and nightmares he experienced as a Marine was just combat. Little did he know that his transition to civilian life was only the start of his troubles. After eight years of military service, Sgt Q suffered from depression, anger, and panic attacks and was diagnosed with PTSD. He nearly ended his own life in the parking lot of a church, where later he was redeemed by Jesus Christ, who gave him a new life. Sgt Q shares his experiences with the VA, becoming homeless, to now becoming an award-winning author, successful entrepreneur and PTSD ambassador.

    133: "Veterans, especially women, want to continue serving outside of the military. It's just finding that thing that ignites you." Today's female veteran with Cat Corchado
    It's been 22 years since Cat Corchado transitioned out of the military as an Air Force veteran that served for 20 years. Although she has enjoyed most of her civilian life as a personal trainer, it's only been in the recent years where she's asked herself, "What's next?" It was during the heart of the pandemic when she realized it was time to start the Sisters in Service podcast. In sharing her journey as a podcaster, she reflects on her surprisingly quiet military transition 22 years ago, how she enjoys supporting people to 'be better in their bodies,' being a female veteran in today's society, and much more.
