    Delta Force Command Sergeant Major on beating PTSD

    Delta Force Command Sergeant Major on beating PTSD

    In this episode, we welcome Tom Satterly, a highly decorated combat veteran who served in the Army for 25 years, including 20 years in the elite Tier One unit, Delta Force.

    He fought in and was portrayed in the Oscar Winning 2001 film: Black Hawk Down and led countless missions, including the capture of Saddam Hussein.

    Tom is a recipient of numerous medals including a Silver Star, and 4 Bronze Stars.

    He also shares his experience of overcoming the mental and emotional struggles he faced after coming within seconds of taking his own life.

    Today, Tom is the co-founder and COO of All Secure Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization serving Special Operation warriors and their families to reconnect and heal on the homefront from the trauma of war.

    Tom is also the best-selling author of "All Secure: A Special Operations Soldiers Fight to Survive on the Battlefield and the Homefront '' and a professional speaker.

    Don't miss this opportunity to hear from a true American hero and learn from his experiences in leadership, critical decision-making, and overcoming mental and emotional struggles.

    Also, I think PTS is a better label than PTSD which we talk about in the episode, I just know fewer people are familiar with the acronym.
