Thomas Schueman takes us through a young Marine officer’s first taste of combat – a very real baptism by fire that ultimately prepared him for the day he’d see it again. Schueman talks about the survival of combat, not just on the battlefield, but also at home. Focusing on that survival at home is not just something he talks about; he’s taken action by starting his own non-profit, called Patrol Base Abbate – named after legendary Marine, Matthew Abbate – to give servicemembers a “space to recalibrate inside the wire and community to thrive outside the wire.” Hear Thomas Schueman’s powerful story of combat and survival on this latest episode of HAZARD GROUND!
