I spent my whole career in Naval Special Warfare. Over my career, I deployed a total of 10 times over 15 years in the Navy. Every deployment, I ended up in a combat zone. I wouldn’t have had it any other way. I wish I could have gone a few more times. This pace though took a toll on my overall health. I had multiple surgeries to fix injuries to get back overseas. It worked for a while but eventually I had to slow down and put my weapon down. I suffer from chronic pain like most combat vets do. During my time in the navy I used alcohol as a release. I drank to celebrate the good times and the bad. It helped with my sleep. It helped ease the body aches and pain. It helped on a few different levels. So I thought. My drinking started to affect my life.
That’s where All Eagles Oscar stepped in. All Eagles Oscar went out of their way to make sure I was taken care of. They heard I was regressing in my transition to civilian life. My drinking was getting out of control to the point where it was effecting my social, business and personal life. When they became aware of this they immediately contacted me and started setting up the process to get me the help I needed. They got me into a transformative treatment plan in California. This 4 weeks of treatment changed my life. I am healthier and feel better than I have in 10 years. My chronic pain is still there but at a level that is much more manageable. The treatment not only help me resist alcohol but also make the right decisions when it comes to proper eating and working out.
My wife and friends have noticed the transformation. My business colleague gets phone calls all the time after old friends see me. I am calmer and patient with my young children as well. Without this treatment and more importantly AEO reaching out, I don’t know where I would have drifted with my alcohol issues.
Lastly, I couldn’t end this testimonial without adding something about the person in charge of and the founder of AEO. He is the most devoted person to injured veterans I have ever met. He goes above and beyond the call when it comes to getting combat veterans help. I know personally he tracks over 200 injured vets. Whenever someone asks me questions about anything relating to care of veterans, he is the person that I know will help. His personal mission in life is to get treatments that work to veterans. I am honored to call him a friend and fellow Brother in Arms.
