EPISODE 066: Loser Stories: The Military & Suicide: Justin Beall

066_fb.jpg

Justin is a 25-year-old Naval Hospital Corpsman, Third Class, Fleet Marine Force, HM3(FMF).  He reached out to LOR early on as the show was beginning, where I learned he was in attendance of my final sermon as a Mega-Church Pastor.

He recently let me know that he was ready to tell his story and wanted to be a guest on the show.  It was good timing, and I was happy to oblige.  I had no idea that his story included deployment, firefights, and more.  Justin transparently shares about his journey through his Naval deployment experience, as well as discussing how hard it is to lose someone, dealing with gruesome experiences, and even suicide.
