After eight tours of duty in Afghanistan, Chad Robichaux (Row-ba-show) had seen it all. From the brutality of the Taliban to witnessing the deaths of 15 fellow soldiers, he began to suffer from debilitating panic attacks. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Chad says, “Imagine you’re drowning in a swimming pool and handcuffed to the bottom. How desperate would you feel to get one breath of air?” That was his level of panic 24/7. When he returned to America, his extreme PTSD led to a suicide attempt in his bedroom closet. Thankfully, Chad trusted Christ as his Savior and today, he serves active duty, military veteran and first responder communities with faith based trauma and resiliency programs.

He is also the co-founder of Save Our Allies, a non-profit organization that focuses on the evacuation and recovery of Americans, our allies, and vulnerable people trapped in Afghanistan. Chad is a best-selling author and has written a number of books related to veteran care and overcoming life’s challenges.
