It’s often said on this podcast that war and combat change you forever, no matter your level of exposure. Tim Stolinski is living proof of that. Deployed to Iraq to train and advise Iraqi Border Police as part of a Military Transition Team (MiTT) in 2009, Stolinski was integrated into a society and fledgling military reeling from an insurgency and a leadership void, the genesis of which extended back decades. Due in part to the day-to-day effort to remain amongst the living, Stolinski’s experience in Iraq would leave a lasting impression, changing him, as it does, forever. Once home and able to process his time at war, Stolinski noticed that the divide between the civilian populace and those who had ventured off to different wars in the Global War on Terror – one of which has lasted for nearly twenty years now – had become much deeper than what it was before he joined the military in the early 2000s. Stolinski hopes to bridge that gap, through writing and outreach within his community, and continued service to his country and those he hopes to help better understand his fellow veterans coming home from war. Hear this veteran’s story on this latest edition of HAZARD GROUND!
