Lani Hankins is an Army vet who deployed to Afghanistan. Working in a war zone was no cake walk, but Lani found the return home to be the tougher battle. Mike and Lani talk about some of the misconceptions of trauma and PTSD - where it comes from, how it doesn't have to be from combat, and why other veterans can really turn on the hate.
Lani is the host of Kruse Corner, a podcast whose name is an homage to a soldier who took his own life after returning home and becoming one of the 22 veterans per day to complete a suicide each day. Through her writing and podcast, Lani leads the charge to help those who are hurting to connect with each other and to stomp the stigma of PTSD and moral injury into the dirt.

Transitions from War Sponsors:
Air Force veteran Jason Jean gives us all a win-win situation: getting great coffee and tangibly supporting veterans and first responders. How does this work? Every bag of coffee you buy puts money directly in the pockets of those who serve with no middleman. When you buy coffee through Transitions from War, the money allocated to me will instead go to my fundraising campaign for the Ironman Foundation's Gold Star Initiative. Tattered Beans comes out of Pennsylvania, birthplace of the Marine Corps, where the first American Flag was stitched, where the Declaration of Independence was signed, home to the late Mac Miller and Punxsutawney Phil.
