Struggle Well – Thoughts on Afghanistan

The messy withdrawal from Afghanistan has caused many service members and veterans to question the value of their time there, and to question why it is worth the loss of brothers and sisters. Josh Goldberg sat down with Lt. Col Aaron Schilleci, who was deployed in support of the surges in Iraq and Afghanistan and the battle against ISIS, to get his thoughts. If you are struggling in the midst of all that is happening – you certainly aren’t alone. If you need support, visit warriorpathh.org and apply for our Warrior PATHH program.

Ken Falke and WP72 Alum Erika Emmons talk 2020 lessons learned

Don’t miss this deep dive into the power of Warrior PATHH and how it can benefit you in any situation. Join Ken Falke as he sits down and chats with Erika Emmons, WP72 Alumni, about her life before and after the program, as well as how it helped her prepare to care for her mother in her final moments of 2020. Erika Emmons is a 6-year Army National Guard combat veteran. She deployed with the 36th Infantry Division to Iraq from 2010-2011 as an imagery analyst before getting out in 2012. She currently lives in Cary, NC for her job with BAE Systems, Inc where she works as a software trainer, technical support, and a Jane of all trades in the GEOINT (Geospatial Intelligence) community.

Erika attended the Warrior PATHH program at Boulder Crest Virginia in October of 2019 and is a proud member of WP class 072 (Valkyrie). She actually put off attending the program for over a year & a half because she felt there were other vets who needed it more than her, but thanks to the gentle persistence of Joe Wood, she relented. Today she readily admits that she needed the program more than she realized & that self-care is NOT selfish, but necessary.

Erika’s biggest personal accomplishment this year was being able to be her mother’s primary caregiver in her last chapter of life. Throughout the year Erika shared her journey through public posts on Instagram & Facebook in hopes of reaching people who are either in similar situations or may be in the future. Her goal was to help just one person, but now she has expanded that goal to reach as many as possible. She is working on a YouTube series about being a primary caregiver & is also in the very early stages of writing a book on the same topic.
