Not Your Average Operator, Ep: 023 – Casey Ingraham
The boys were honored, beyond measure, to have Casey Ingraham on the show. Casey, a loving father of 3 amazing boys, doting husband, Prior Enlisted Marine with an intrepid spirit, a talented custom home builder, and budding entrepreneur, led a tough conversation that many combat veterans have had behind closed doors. We sat back and sojourned through Casey’s journey that started with an unexpected non-combat injury, separating him from his unit down range. Something that initially seemed simple, and almost a godsend, plucking him out of the badlands of the Helmend, became the precipitous event which cascaded down a dark battle with PTSD. Casey daringly brings to bare how this undercurrent of battling PTSD steered him towards drinking, addictions to pills, and other self-destructive behavior. Fortunately, for Casey, and his family, this story is a story that celebrates the human spirit. More importantly, it’s a story of strength, the belief in the best version of yourself, and tenacity to not give in to our darkest impulses.
Please share your thoughts, and if necessary, feel free to reach out to us if you can relate to any of Casey’s story. It’s important for all of our listeners to understand that none of us are alone in our battles.
