'Mutant'-A Marine in Ramadi, Fallujah, Afghanistan and His Journey Back from Darkness‪.‬ The Half Percent Podcast

    • Society & Culture

D.M. Scott spent 12 years in the Marine Corps, with deployments to Iraq twice (Ramadi, Fallujah) and Afghanistan. While in Iraq, he earned the nickname 'Mutant', for surviving multiple mortar and IED blasts, apparently unharmed. But time would reveal deeper wounds in the form of TBI, and D.M.'s road to recovery was a bumpy one that took him to some dark places. D.M. shares his road back to recovery through therapy and the restoring power of the ocean and surfing with the veteran non-profit One More Wave. This is a raw, revealing and inspirational conversation and I'm grateful to D.M. for taking a chance and sharing his story.
