Shots From the Winchester Podcast #32: Zack Colbert
With 20 years of military experience and multiple deployments overseas in Special Operations, experiencing much loss didn't keep Zack Colbert down. It was a hard journey but his story is one you won't forget. From PTSD and TBI diagnosis, to loss of a 'brother', his mission to save lives is beyond admireable. Through Zack's Art Therapy he was able to find his purpose. Honoring his lost 'brother,' he created a comic book called The Sequel: Coping with PTSD available NOW on Amazon and Kindle. One quote that stuck with us and shows Zack's dedication to his mission was "Through the loss of his life, hopefully we are saving many more." Wow! We hope sharing his story, spreads the awareness we all need!

Greencastle Podcast #24: AMSE’s Flossie Hall & Moni Jefferson
Any service member worth their salt will tell you that being in the military is hard, but being married to it is even harder.

Rest easy...the Association of Military Spouses, headed by military spouses Flossie Hall (https://www.instagram.com/flossie_hall/) and Moni Jefferson (https://www.instagram.com/monijefferson/), is there to do exactly that!
