Guest Bio: Brian Fleming is a combat veteran, international speaker, and No. 1 best-selling author. His talks about overcoming adversity and finding success are in constant demand. In his book, REDEPLOYED, Brian talks about the challenges that returning veterans face and how they can succeed when they return to civilian life. With an estimated 46,000 to 56,000 veterans coming home in the next 18 months, his message is more timely than ever: Combat veterans are at significantly high risk for PTSD, divorce, substance abuse, depression, and suicide. Whether you’re a veteran, know someone who is, or are simply struggling with life’s challenges, Brian has something to say to you.
Brian Fleming gives an in-depth look at his experiences being attacked by a suicide bomber, and his second encounter with being the victim of enemy attack. He discusses his hospital stay and some of the things that made him decide not to give up but to help others who have been through experiences that bring about the onset of PTSD.
