Today I would like to send you to my friends at Mental Grenade, an epic blog post created for the veteran and civilian community by my brother in arms Drew Toothman, a retired Marine Gunnery Sergeant who served as an Explosive Ordnance Disposal technician downrange after 9/11. This blog post site was created to have real conversations on mental health and other life issues affecting both the veteran and military community. Drew and I have a mutual friend, Chad Hiser, who has served with the Marines as a combat veteran in Operation Iraqi Freedom and later with the Coast Guard.

In the link below, you'll learn more about Chad's story on taking back his fitness and now helps other veterans do the same...
