The Trauma Recovery Podcast for Military, Veterans, First Responders, and their families.

PTSD Recovery is a tough road, and it can not be travelled alone. Here is how OP TR helps.

1. Listening to the show is a form of peer support. Hearing stories from people who have been there, done that...just like you , is a POWERFUL thing. Knowing you are not alone IS healing.

2. There are a LOT of resources out there. I find the resources, and bring them to the show.

3. Know that you are NOT alone

    Ep. #184. Tyler Ledford, CFO of Flanders Fields, USMC Veteran

    https://flandersfields.org/

    Flanders Fields is on a mission to make sure no veteran is ever denied a bed, addiction treatment placement or support because of inadequate financial resources. Many veterans experience delays of days to months waiting for the Veterans Administration to fully cover needed services, often to their detriment. There is always the possibility the services won’t be covered at all. In cases of opioid addiction, such delays can be deadly. The nature of addiction often leads opioid dependent veterans to seek street alternatives and the prevalence of fentanyl is so dire that a delay of just a few hours in getting into a treatment facility can result in another needless death. Many more of our brother and sister veterans are lost to addiction, either directly by overdose or indirectly by suicide, than are lost in combat. It is our relentless mission to help every veteran in need that we can.

    Ep #182. Operation Pegasus Jump, Tim Turner (T2) and Rob MacNeill

    2 Airborne legends are putting together Operation Pegasus Jump, for First Responders, Active serving, and Veterans. 

    Wanna jump in Paradise?  Have a listen, and see if it's for you. 

    Calling all Veterans, Serving Military and First Responders.

    We are grateful for your time served and everything you have done and are doing for our Country. As a way to show our appreciation and give back, Campbell River Skydive Centre is excited to host Operation Pegasus Jump in July 2022. Veterans, Serving Military and First Responders are considered to be at a greater risk for developing Operational Stress Injuries and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder than most other occupations. As a way to bring you Hero’s together as brothers and sisters, our main event will be a First Jump Course with the option to continue through the student process. Other activities will include a Golf Day, Flyboarding and Helicopter Tours, as well as hanging out with old friends and making new ones. Along with these activities there will be a meet and greet on the first day and a military style BBQ/Smoker on the last.

    If you are unable to skydive we still welcome and encourage your attendance to Operation Pegasus Jump to enjoy all other activities planned.

    Campbell River Skydive Centre is the only veteran owned drop zone in Canada. Our primary staff volunteering their time for this event consist of many retired Search and Rescue Technician, Airborne Regiment and Jump Company Veterans who are all certified skydive coaches and instructors.

    To see full details and to register for the event please see the following link:
    https://forms.gle/KYrC7YKMn2gr63nu8

    Cut off for registration is June 1st 2022.

    If you are unable to attend and would still like to donate to Operation Pegasus Jump, donations can be made at https://gofund.me/bfc0ffef

    All Covid restrictions and requirements will be considered and communicated to all participants closer to the time of the event.

    Ep #180. General Rick Hillier, Chief of Defense Staff (ret)

    Ep #180. General Rick Hillier, Chief of Defense Staff (ret)

    Rick Hillier has a lifetime of service.  From the age of 16, he moved towards a life in the Military.  General Hillier has spend years of his life in various war zones around the world, and has earned a reputation among the troops as Canada's favorite Military Leader. 

    From 2005-2008 General Hillier served as Canada's Top Soldier.  As the CDS (Chief of Defense Staff) he was an unshakable advocate for both the active duty Military and Veterans.  Because he refused to be a "yes man", the Politicians never knew what to do with him.  His staunch advocacy for doing the "right thing" at times created rifts with his Political counterparts, but he stood firm regardless. 

    Rick has earned nearly every medal and citation imaginable, including the Order of Canada.  Today. Rick is a steadfast proponent for others to receive the appropriate medals and citations which they deserve.  Canada has a bad habit of not recognizing it's battle exploits.  Too many acts of Valor have not been acknowledged appropriately.  Rick is doing his best to remedy this fault, and see that the brave Canadian troops receive the recognition which they have earned.

    Ep. #179. John Senior, outside the wire vs inside the wire

    John Senior is both an Army, and Airforce Veteran with tours in Bosnia and Afghanistan. 

    Today, John is a peer support leader with OSI-CAN. https://www.osi-can.ca/ 

    We talked about PTSD as it relates to people who serve behind the scenes, and why it occurs at a higher rate than those who are on the front lines. 

    The audio quality is not as good as it usually is...I hope you can forgive me for the background hum.

Jaw Dropping Good!

I learned about this PODCAST from a close friend. I have binged OP TR like one might binge Netflix. The guests, stories, and topics, are resonating for anyone who has experienced trauma or is close to someone who has.
