SPECIAL: To Punch Or Not To Punch a Nazi?: Chad Mummert

SPECIAL: To Punch Or Not To Punch a Nazi?: Chad Mummert

Due to the tragic and violent events taking place in Charlottesville Virginia this past weekend.  We are taking a break from our regular schedule programming to address a conversation around hate, dealing with it, and growing past it.

We all are expressing our anger, grief, pain, remorse, and disappointment differently.  It's important to feel those emotions.  Expression of our emotions is extremely healthy for us all.  But how should we express our distaste for the beliefs of others and our disgust with hate, indifference, white supremacy, the KKK, and Nazi's?

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

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.  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.
