What is True Grit?
What is True Grit? Pushing yourself even when you don’t want to, even when you don’t feel like it. Giving something you're all because it’s the only true option. Zach Ceballos and our Executive Director, Karl Monger discuss perseverance through adversity and a true warrior mindset. The military prepares men physically and mentally for war. But are you prepared for what comes next? Welcome to the GallantFew Podcast. We have created a nationwide network of successfully transitioned veterans that engage locally with new veterans.

PTSD - THE NEW ENEMY
This week held PTSD Awareness Day. But it's time to stop labeling this as a disorder. This is the body's natural response to trauma, but some how people believe if you go through it so much you become hardened to the experience, better able to deal with it? Makes sense, you know if you continually rip the scab off an open wound it heals, right? NOT. Doesn’t make sense at all, it ignores basic understanding of the brain’s ability to capture and store memories. We believe in working through these traumas with innovative measures, without drugs, without immersion, and we are seeing HUGE success. If you or a loved one is dealing this we would like to introduce you to Burris Emotional Fitness Coaching and the Gallantfew Family of Organizations.

The Million Meter Row - Raising Awareness for GWOT Veteran
Executive Director Karl Monger and  VetRec Nick Ostrowski discuss the importance of raising awareness for Veteran's transitional struggles. Creating campaigns that are connecting civillians to veterans in order to change the narrative. Impacting fundraisers like VetRec's Million Meter Row are changing the way the our country sees veterans. Roughly 20 veterans a day commit suicide nationwide, according to new data from the Department of Veterans Affairs — a figure that dispels the often quoted, but problematic, “22 a day” estimate yet solidifies the disturbing mental health crisis the number implied.” Our purpose is to raise money and awareness for United States Military Veterans. In its third year, the Million Meter Row brings together 40 teams each rowing 25,000 meters to reach 1,000,000 meters for the day on Concept2 stationary rowing machines.

Functional Emotional Fitness - With Dr. Kelly Burris
Our government's response is one-size-fits-all, the VA is slow to serve  and those serving the tip of the spear have difficulty asking for help when they return home. Many of our GWOT veterans have lost purpose and hope. It Starts with a lack of identity after military service, which can make one feel like he or she does not fit or belong. This can translate into frustration with schools, jobs and family relationships and can be exacerbated by alcohol and drug abuse, NOT to mention the cocktails of prescription drugs issued by the VA for anxiety and insomnia. Left unchecked, it feeds isolation. GallantFew Focuses on Functional Fitness. So what is Functional Fitness? Functional means usable in daily life. Fitness means it can be measured and with intentional planning and focus can be improved. In this podcast Karl Monger and Dr. Kelly Burris from The Burris Institute discuss Burris Coaching and how it can change your spiritual, social, professional, physical and emotional wellbeing.

CHANGING LIVES - EASTER PODCAST
Easter is a story of resurrection, and while this story certainly isn’t of Biblical proportions, what you will hear is a story of destruction, submission, acceptance, and redemption. This story is meant to let those out there in the struggle know that they are not alone, that what they are going through isn’t unique to them. That if they are willing to share, that we are willing to listen.

Why We Climb - Nate Lowe
Karl sits down with Nate Lowe, and Army veteran who shares how the GallantFew Climbing Program has changed his life. Climbing is very relatable to life. "THE GOAL IS AT THE TOP, BUT THE TASK IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU. YOU HAVE TO FOCUS AND BE IN THE MOMENT. ONE DISTRACTION, ONE LOOK AWAY, ONE THOUGHT ON SOMETHING ELSE BESIDES WHAT IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU; AND YOU MISS YOUR NEXT STEP. YOU HAVE TO FOCUS ON EACH HOLD, EACH STEP, AND ONE INCH AT A TIME YOU WILL ACHIEVE YOUR GOAL." Welcome to the GallantFew Podcast.
