We bring a little bit of levity to the show this week with our guest, Matt Cothron. Matt, better known by his online moniker, Uncle Chaps, is a successful (and humorous) blogger and podcast host. But, before that, he was a Marine, serving in combat as a bomb dog handler. In 2007 he was shot through the arm – an injury that would eventually contribute to medical retirement. Leading up to that event, he had been in over 40 fire fights and conducted over 100 raids in Iraq. His experiences in combat would ultimately contribute to a diagnosis of PTSD toward the end of his military career. In turn, his struggle with PTSD would lead to a very personal and regretful event in his life that he still pays the price for to this day. Hear about Matt Cothron’s journey from Marine to successful career bringing humor and perspective to the masses, on this latest edition of HAZARD GROUND!
