This is the final conversation between CJ & US Army Veteran BT about BT’s military service and his ordeals since getting out. (Please excuse a little bit of minor audio issues. As you’ll hear, we had some sporadic Skype hiccups, as well as a slightly-longer-than-usual delay, probably because BT has moved since our last conversation, and is now living a little more in the boonies than previously.)
Join CJ & BT as they discuss:
- BT’s physical & mental health issues since leaving the Army, and the problems he’s had in trying to get adequate help from the Department of Veterans Affairs (or VA)
- Head trauma
- Burn pits & Gulf War illness
- How BT’s experience in the Army and dealing with the VA have changed his views on many things, and his overall take on his military experienceWanna meet CJ and ?
Come out to the 2018 Midwest Peace & Liberty Fest in Delton, Michigan! CJ will be there from Friday, June 22nd through Monday, June 25th, and will be speaking on Sunday, June 24th. Hope to see you there!
