He was later promoted to Master Sergeant, where he held the position of First  Sergeant before his retirement. Eddie received his Bachelor of Science in Organizational Management from Nyack College,  New York, where he graduated summa cum laude. He is the recipient of numerous awards and decorations, most notably, Glaxo Supervisor of the Year; Combat Action Badge; Army  Commendation Medal; Novartis CEO Diversity Leadership Award; DOD, ESGR “Seven Seals” Award, two-time recipient of the ESGR “Patriot” Award and most recently named a 2021  Veteran Champion of the Year by G.I.

Authenticity Is Key

I like the comfortability of the environment and authenticity of the podcast. The first episode with Annette Whittenberger shows a veteran with great strength and vulnerability. The second one with Trillity shows what pressing through and humility looks like. These two and the others are amazing interviews. Tiffany is setting a great example for all veterans to move forward in and through their transition from the military and to be honest and vulnerable enough to seek out the help and support needed to live life to the fullest!
