For several years, Brian Castner performed one of the military’s most difficult and dangerous jobs: he was an Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) technician. Not only was he an EOD tech, but he was also an officer, leading a team of bomb disposal experts, and ultimately responsible for every decision they made in combat. He served two combat tours in Iraq as the leader of an EOD unit. But, when he came home from his final combat tour, he began fighting a new enemy within, one he defines as the “Crazy,” a jangled mix of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) symptoms. It has taken time, but Brian’s wounds are healing, and he is now an established writer and bestselling author of books that are helping others deal with the scars of combat. For many, the war continues on once they leave the battlefield…Brian is proof of that. He is also proof that there is a way to heal from the wounds that so many combat veterans battle each and every day. This is another great episode you don’t want to miss! | @Brian_Castner | “The Long Walk” | “All the Ways We Kill and Die” | “The Road Ahead: Stories of the Forever War”
