VO2 FUTURE PLANS:
Looking forward to being able to make regular meetings and events when this semester ends. I hope to be a model and motivation to other veterans in career and financial success.
PRE VO2 STRUGGLES:
My pre-VO2 struggles include the “post-military blues” as I would call it. I knew I would miss the brotherhood and camaraderie, which I was correct about, but I was not prepared for the loss of a sense of belonging and purpose. I’m working my way out of a depression and relearning who I really am as a person.
HOW HAS VO2 HELPED YOU?
I learned about VO2 by starting to attend the CrossFit classes at Devil Dogg CrossFit. Chris was excited to welcome another vet and I definitely felt welcomed and have felt that sense of belonging coming back by being around the other vets at the gym and all the athletes and coaches there.
