John was a college baseball player whose dreams of going professional were superseded by his desire to serve. John and I had a great conversation about the stigma of seeking treatment of mental health issues while serving and the perception of "weakness" in the military culture.
After leaving the service, he and his wife created "The Come Home Project". From their FaceBook page:
“Come Home” is designed to bring the Warrior-Spouse relationship closer together through the battlefields of emotion, communication, and relationships. We developed this course through very personal experiences that we have endured and learned together over the years. The last two things you should lose before, during and after a deployment are your life and your wife. So, lets put down the rifle and pick up your spouse's hand."
