PART 2: [TRIGGER ADVISORY]
On a special two-part episode of Love By Candace, Candace speaks with her cousin & special guest retired U.S. Marine, Jason Spears about some of the harsh realities of military service. Jason retired as a Gunnery Sergeant after 20 years of service and four combat tours to Iraq and Afghanistan.
Jason shares the reality of how extended periods away from home and surviving in a war zone affects one’s mental, physical and spiritual health. This has a direct impact on all relationships, including children and spouses. Candace and Jason discuss his battle with PTSD and depression which led to suicidal thoughts. Jason shares how he sought support through counseling and encourages others to do the same.
To all who serve in the military and their families, Thank You For Your Service.
