The Daily High Club team would like to thank everyone who has contributed their story. We have been overwhelmed by the amount of responses. Proceeds from our June boxes will go toward The American Legion. This incredible organization promotes the research of alternative treatment methods. For the remaining month of June, we will be featuring Veteran stories we have received. To protect their identities, we will change some of the details and names so as not to jeopardize their current jobs.
If you would like to donate to The American Legion, we encourage you do so!
Our next story is from an Army Vet. Read about his incredible family, two deployments and his use of alternative treatments.
As a bit of my background, I'm a proud native Texan (best damn Country in the USA). After graduating High School I met my wife and got married and had 2 girls and one boy. Joined the Army in 2008 as an 88M (Motor Transport Operator) A.K.A. "Truck Driver." The Army allowed me to see parts of the world, most only know by their Biblical terms. The Army got two deployments out of me before I decided I had enough. As a truck driver, I was on the road all the time. I had over 250 CLPs (combat logistical patrols). I saw almost every part of Iraq, the good and the bad.
I got to sleep under the cross sabers in the green-zone. I got to help build a water plant that produced water for over 4.5k residents. Despite the bad guys best efforts, I made it home with all my limbs. I did get hit a few times pretty bad (2 IED's, RKG3s and VBIEDs), but the vehicles did its job and took the brunt. I got out in 2015.
Despite the fact that Texas is in the stone age, I use alternative treatments. The VA refuses to work with my medications, which in turn costs me another $1,300 a year to be on my wife's insurance (It's sad I pay for expensive as shit health care, despite I have 100% free "health care" at the VA).
I am now doing very well as a Veteran. I am employed in a GREAT job (for my situation it is prefect). I have a great family that supports me to no end. I have 2 college degrees under my belt, and I am working on my 3rd, the GI bill is amazing!
