In this episode of Change It Up Radio, my Dad and World War II Veteran, Jack Gutman, joins me to talk about honoring our veterans and breaking free from the suffering of post-traumatic stress.

In salute of this honorary time of year, I am joined by my Dad, Jack Gutman, who is one of the last living World War ll Veterans who are healthy, lucid, and able to share with us the realities of D-Day, a colossal moment in our country’s history.

In this interview, he shares his painful recollection of the Invasion of Normandy and what it was like to prepare, participate, and survive one of the most grueling days in human history. Jack also discusses his journey of healing the wounds of war after a 66 year-long struggle with PTSD, and how he got the help he so desperately needed to regain control of his life.

Today, my Dad is free of flashbacks, fear, and failure. Living from his current state of gratitude, he has one goal… to encourage anyone suffering from PTSD to know that there is so much hope for them and to reach out and get the help that they need.
