Sep 11, 2019

Retired Army Sergeant Josh Hansen and his wife, Melissa, help veterans struggling with depression and thoughts of suicide to heal and live fuller lives. Josh considered suicide himself as he was recovering at home following eight direct hits from IEDs in Iraq. Melissa was by his side through it all. Josh found his turning point and regained his health and active lifestyle. He and Melissa now find joy helping other veterans.
