3. Navigating Life’s Battlefields
At the height of the pandemic, we explored how to navigate life’s battlefields with U.S. Army Veteran Josh Mantz. In 2007, a sniper’s bullet nearly ended Josh’s life while he was serving in Iraq. After flatlining for a full 15 minutes, a determined and highly skilled medical team was able to resuscitate him. Josh has since become one of the nation’s leading speakers on psychological trauma and moral injury.
4. No Boundaries: Kirstie Ennis’ Mission to Serve
In honor of Women’s History Month, we welcomed U.S. Marine Corps Veteran Kirstie Ennis. She is the daughter of two Marines whose example inspired her to join the Marine Corps at the age of 17. Deployed to Afghanistan in 2012, Ennis was in a traumatic helicopter accident. After more than 40 surgeries and the amputation of her left leg, she has become a role model and inspiration for others around the world.
