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:
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.
Great job in 2018 Bradey, keep up the good work and have an incredible 2019
