Chad joins us to talk about his life as a Force Recon Marine, becoming a deputy with the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office in Louisiana, a particular night as a deputy that you have to hear to beleive, going back into the Marines after 9/11, several deployments, overcoming PTSD, how jiu-jitsu and MMA became an addiction after his life in the Marines, which lead to his rock bottom and almost cost him his family.
Chad was able to overcome tremendous obstacles and adversity, and through faith and forgiveness, he was able to turn his life around.
