In this episode of the Warrior Soul Podcast we discuss a subject that has affected most of our audience in one way or another: war. We read about war, and we see it depicted in movies. We also hear it spoken about on the news and in political commentary, but the fact remains that a very small percentage of our population in the US ever experiences war. Our guests today are no strangers to war. Dr. Michael Robillard is a philosopher from the University of Oxford who previously served as an infantry officer in the US Army's 82nd Airborne. Lt. Colonel Bob Underwood is a doctoral candidate in philosophy at the University of Oxford and is currently serving as an Armor Officer in the US Army. Together Michael and Bob have created the Homofurens Podcast where they explore society's relationship with war and how this relationship affects warriors.

In this episode, Chris goes into 6 daily habits that have helped him through the dark times. Of course these habits aren't just for veterans, but they'll be particularly helpful to any veteran out there who's looking to get his or her life on track.
Your problems don't make you special. Everyone faces obstacles in life, and to some extent, if you go through life without any difficulty, it probably means that you aren't really living a fulfilling life.
But sometimes we get into a rut, and the way forward may not appear to be very clear. In this solo episode, Chris discusses some of the problems he's faced in his life and discusses how he pulled himself together.

Ross and Kara of FBOMB nutrition started their entrepreneurial quest when they saw a distinct problem: so many people were going low carb, but there were very few low carb high fat snack options on the market.
They decided to fill that hole in the market with their FBOMBS, packets containing nut butters and oils that provided a quick and portable snack to low carb dieters.
As with any business story they've had ups and downs, but met each obstacle with grit and determination to help their business to succeed. Now, armed with a new manufacturing facility in Flagstaff Arizona, they are seeking to bring their product to the world, and they want to help US Military service members by sending packs of their healthy snack alternative to troops on the front lines.
If you know of a deployed unit, email us over at email@example.com and we will get a shipment of healthy FBOMBs out to them!

In 2007, Lieutenant Joshua Mantz was on a dismounted patrol just outside of Sadr City in Iraq. As he was standing in front of Staff Sergeant Marlon Harper, a sniper fired a large caliber round from a nearby building. That round passed through Staff Sergeant Harper's chest, killing him instantly. That same round hit Mantz in the leg, severing his femoral artery. Though wounded, Mantz attempted to assist Harper before noticing that he was also gravely wounded.
Mantz began fighting for his life until he flatlined. Mantz was dead for 15 minutes before a determined US Army medical team was able to revive him. Miraculously, Mantz did not suffer brain damage and he was able to return to his deployed unit in Iraq 5 months later. He continued to serve in the Army, reaching the rank of Major, until he was discharged due to severe Crohns Disease.
But though Mantz had healed from his physical wounds, he was not healed. Throughout the rest of his military career and into his civilian life, Mantz struggled with darkness, depression, guilt, and shame regarding his recovery in the shadow of the loss of his soldier. As a high profile spokesman for the military's behavioral therapy program, Josh was able to hide his pain behind the shield of his story. It was not until he was able to integrate this darkness into his life that he truly began to heal. His book, The Beauty of a Darker Soul chronicles his journey and he's made it his mission in life to help others recover from their own invisible wounds.

Amputations are an unfortunate product of our modern wars. Luckily, with better medical technology, we are lucky to keep more wounded warriors alive and living productive lives. As we see with some, like Rob Jones, they can even go on to do extraordinary things that even people with all their limbs cannot do. The problem is that these warriors go through so many challenges when it comes to phantom limb pain.

Ok, picture this. It's 3pm. You have 30 things to do on your to do list and not one of them is checked off. You've been playing cleanup - dealing with phone calls and texts all day long. Your wife wants to spend time with you tonight, but it's gonna be rough. Working out? That's a laugh. You don't have time to breathe.
In this episode we talk about setting up your schedule so that you can win the day. This involves finding time in your day to do the things that are important to move you forward, and compartmentalizing the firefighting activities you have to do i.e. solving everyone else's problems into a space that doesn't interrupt the things you need to do to move forward and succeed.
