Chad Robichaux’s story is an incredible journey of tragedy to triumph. He served his country proudly as a Special Operations Force Recon Marine, served on a JSOC Task Force on 8 deployments to Afghanistan in the War on Terror, and had a successful career as a Pro MMA Champion. Despite those achievements Chad faced many hardships. After Afghanistan Chad was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and his marriage and family life was left in shambles. Through the faithful discipleship of a local Christian man, God redeemed Chad’s life, marriage and family.
After experiencing this life change, Chad and his wife Kathy founded The Mighty Oaks Foundation in order to reach other Veterans, Active Duty Service Members and their families who are dealing with the same crisis in their lives due to post combat service. Chad is a widely sought after public speaker and subject matter expert on PTSD, Military and Veterans’ issues. He has testified in Veterans’ Court regarding combat trauma and PTSD, wrote a best-selling book on the subject and has been featured on such media outlets as Fox News, Forbes, Christian Post, and The 700 Club.
Co-sponsored with Branches of Valor a ministry to service members, veterans, first responders and their families struggling with service-related stress and trauma. This conference is designed to honor our troops, first responders and their families and to provide a safe, relaxing environment with practical resources, supportive connections, and Biblical solutions. Several workshops will be offered Saturday morning covering issues of vital relevance for troops and families who have experienced combat trauma and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder as well as for first-responders and their families dealing with the stress and trauma of their dangerous occupations. Scholarships are available!** For more information visit http://www.branchesofvalor.org.
