After 20+ years in the Infantry my role had changed to the point where I wasn't so much directly in the fight as much as it was my job to facilitate the men that are directly in the fight with what they need to complete the mission. Mentoring and training is mostly what my job consisted of.
Infantrymen live a savage life that provides them with the skill set to do bad things to bad people in order to protect everything that our beautiful flag represents. They train long hours, live in poor conditions, and are subjected to highly stressful events to prove how far they can actually push themselves and still be ready to fight in the end. The food they eat is not something a regular civilian would see as a decent meal. The uniforms that they wear are stained with blood, sweat, and mud. Their bodies are strong, but riddled with scars, bug bites, rashes from plants and lack of proper hygiene. They can walk for very long distances with everything they need to live packed on their back. The bond they share is so strong that they would step in front of a bullet or jump on a grenade for their battle buddy. They stand tall knowing that what they are doing and sacrificing is for the greater good of all Americans. I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to influence these men and make a difference in their personal and professional lives that they will remember forever. I took great pride in training and mentoring them as if they were my own children. I am proud to have worn the uniform, and ETS after ETS, I continued to do so until they told me that my services were no longer needed in the fight.
In my next chapter of life, post service, I've teamed up with Tim Shurr to create One Final Mission in order to continue mentoring and training soldiers in my retirement. Except now we are training to turn off the fight or flight, and to release the traumatic experiences and old beliefs that are trapped in our subconscious minds. After my own powerful and life changing personal experience with hypnosis, I knew this was my next calling. I've learned so much about the power of our subconscious minds, and now thanks to Tim, I also understand how to help you tap into that power in your own mind and live a life of true peace and freedom.
