Chad Robichaux and wife Kathy stopped by the BREATHEcast studio to talk about the life changing work they are doing with Mighty Oaks Warrior Programs. A program set to help active duty military and veterans overcome PTSD, fight for their family, and learn the Godly mandate for men and women to flourish.
Chad explained that when his life turned around because of Jesus he just had to do something to share it with others. "It's like finding a cure to cancer you can't help but share it with others," he exclaimed.
Watch the full interview below:
Mighty Oaks Warrior Program is providing a solution to the sobering statistic of 23 Military suicides a day, and a divorce rate that is over 80%. With over 700 graduates of the program, Mighty Oaks humbly boasts that there have been no suicides among those who have gone through the program, and only 1 family has moved forward in divorce after attending the family program.
