ResilienceMN

The MN National Guard has the highest suicide rate in the country. After a decade plus of continuous war, thousands of our neighbors suffer from hidden wounds of war: PTSD, Military Sexual Trauma, and Moral Injury.

This is truly an urgent mission. Every day 22 veterans commit suicide because the community has failed to take responsibility for sending these brave young citizens to war. Join host Paul Riedner, formerly an Army deep sea diver, interview resilient, thriving Iraq, Afghanistan, and Vietnam veterans. These are stories from the heart of the veteran experience: stories from boot camp, war, deployment, leaders they admired, struggles of reintegration. Some will bust your gut laughing and others will leave you in tears, but every one tells the larger story of how thousands of men and women found themselves in war and what they found when they returned.
