This is why.

When I am in the presence of combat veterans I can feel the strength radiating off of them, even when they feel they are at their weakest.  All of the mental skills they used to prepare for war are still active and it is a matter of helping them to understand that those same mental skills can be used to cultivate a whole new kind of pathway in their lives.

They empower me to keep going, to not stop, to not give up. I shared with a veteran recently that I often questioned why I got hurt, why this all happened to me. He picked up my book and                                                                 pointed to it and said, "This is why."  

As I sit here writing this, I can feel the burn in my eyes. I smiled at him and said, "Yes, this is why. All of this is why."  As he heals, his example will help others heal, and if it weren't for our veterans I wouldn't be doing any of what I'm doing.
Not only have they secured the freedom for me to talk as I do, but to run a business as I do, to volunteer as I do, but they also keep reminding me how important the message is here, because no one else is saying it like I do. 

When a soldier, a Marine, and a Sailor ask me to sign their books that is probably one of the biggest honors I could ever be given. To have their respect, their trust, their encouragement means more than they realize.
