Monday Meltdown is our weekly time to chat with each other.
On this weeks episode, we talk about an article that many of you have sent in. It’s about our brains and what happens to them if stop believing in God.
In this episode, Justin, our 25-year-old Naval Hospital Corpsman, Third Class, Fleet Marine Force, HM3(FMF), Loser. Shares about what to do about suicide as a military, armed forces, corpsman. He shares candidly about the militaries abundance of awareness training, but the serious lack of problem-solving availability when it comes to suicide help in the military.
Like most large organizations, there is a severe culture problem. When it comes to Marines getting help. If there is help to be sought out, it's hard to gain traction because you're moving around all the time. Not to mention, what Marine would get help when their superiors and peers all take a stance of "needing help means you're weak." As far as I'm concerned, F**K THEM!
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.
