Service – the action of helping or doing work for someone
On this episode of Untaming Masculinity, Dan and Brad have the honor of sitting down with our friend David Body of Operation Restored Warrior. David shares his story, including how we all met, then dives into the incredible work that Operation Restored Warrior does.
So many veterans have been impacted by their decision to serve their country. They consider it an honor to serve this great nation. But many of them return home broken. That brokenness continues to follow them throughout their lives. Each day, twenty-two veterans commit suicide, in so many ways because they have lost their way. Operation Restored Warrior is a non-profit, nondenominational Christian organization whose purpose is to help these warriors restore themselves through the healing of Jesus.
Operation Restored Warrior hosts 5-day Drop Zones at various locations across the US. Their primary focus is healing a man’s heart. The goal is for veterans to find inspiration and renewed vision to help them take on the challenges that have held them back. David goes into depth on the renewal that these men experience after these events and their renewed focus on helping rescue other veteran warriors.
