Review for Veteran's PATH, Colorado Springs, CO, USA
The Team at Veteran's PATH is a reflection of the culture many of us are drawn to in the military. A culture of service, and teams. Prior to COVID I heard about this program while listening in on a PODCAST. I was impressed by the message and the effort being taken to help veterans in need. Months later as we approached Memorial Day weekend, I reflected on the five veterans who I have worked with who have taken their own lives. All did it after they left service, my belief is they lost connection with their teams, but also lost a way to engage the demons they faced. While there is no silver bullet, I firmly believe Veteran's PATH offers some valuable tools and a culture to help against this incredible challenge. As evidence of my belief I brought them into my most sacred professional circle and had Jon Macaskill come speak to my 850 person team. The response was incredibly well received by my team and I know I personally learned some things as well. Its not the message you would expect to hear from a retired Navy SEAL, but that is precisely why it is such a powerful message. I have since incorporated Mindfulness practices in my life and I hope to continue to be an ally with Jon and his team as they help veterans find a better path.
