What up, Get Up Nation? My name is Ben Biddick, the Host of the Get Up Nation Podcast and Co-Author of Get Up: The Art of Perseverance with former Major League Baseball Player and CEO of Lurong Living, Adam Greenberg. On this Memorial Day, I offer you Episode 22. Recently, I spoke with Travis Partington of Oscar Mike Radio. A United States Marine with a passion to serve the veteran community with his radio show, it was my honor to connect with Travis, listen to how he decided to invest himself in the service of those who’ve served, and learn more about his passion to end veteran suicide. If you live in the Greater Boston area and share a passion to bring healing and hope to those who are dealing with the psychological impact of violence and war, connect with Travis. He’s Oscar Mike, On the Move, toward and for more conscious systems that truly meet the needs of people who place their lives on the altar of freedom and survive. If you are interested in creating systems where people are able to effectively heal into wholeness after experiencing traumatic stress, trauma, and violence, please take the time to not only listen to this podcast, but join Travis, Oscar Mike Radio, Get Up Nation, and me in creating a world where wounds are soothed and bound at the highest and deepest level, where conflict is resolved with unparalleled power and efficiency, and where people who offer their entire selves to creating a brilliant world free of terror, oppression, and abuse experience the honor and satisfaction of knowing their sacrifices were worth every moment.
Get Up Nation, if personal and organizational resilience can be established in these environments, just think of what that means for every facet of society, whether in refugee populations, populations who have survived oppressive and abusive forms of government, populations who have survived natural disaster, domestic violence survivors, human trafficking survivors, those attempted to heal from Adverse Childhood Experiences, those suffering from the effects of poverty and mental illness—the list goes on and on. We are on the cusp of a New Era. Be a part of creating a world where no one gets left behind. Veterans lead the way into the most violent places on earth, now they’re helping to lead the way out of the most affected places within.
This episode is dedicated to Nathan Vacho and Dan Thompson who made the ultimate sacrifice to create a world free from terror. Rest in Peace. Brothers, I’m doing my very best to honor the sacrifice you made, to be worthy of it.
