From PTSD to Warrior!

Why is the Easter season such a big deal to Christians? And why are we so affected by the Coronavirus lockdown keeping us away from church this year?
From PTSD to Champion MMA fighter, best selling author, and founder of Mighty Oaks Warrior Program Chad Robichaux.
His book “An Unfair Advantage – Victory in the Midst of Battle,” a story about his life, is being made into a movie. The message is… we can overcome anything!
In 2001 Pres. Bush signed an executive order allowing military personnel to choose to receive faith-based treatments. This was very effective. In 2009 Pres. Obama overturned Bush’s Order and took away faith treatments for military veterans. As a result, suicides and mental health issues spiked using only traditional clinical counseling and prescriptions. Pres. Trump has just restored Pres. Bush’s Order.
Many military personnel feel oppressed because they don’t have the freedom in the military to enjoy many of the freedoms they are fighting for.
Under Obama’s order, the military took Bibles out of facilities, stopped Christmas carols and programs, even Christmas cards of a religious nature weren’t allowed to be distributed.
Chad’s organization is requested by the military to speak to new recruits, all of them! He addresses the spiritual pillar of the military because it’s foundational to their success. He says no one ever leaves without a book. And complaints only come in from people on the outside who have no idea what’s going on or what those military folks are dealing with. They’re just pushing an agenda.
