S03E15 - Sgt Q (Aaron Quinonez) pt1

In this 3 part episode we've special guest Sgt Q - Aaron Quinonez, former US Special forces JTAC forward observer joining us from the United States. 

In part 1, Sgt Q share's his story. A proud Marine since right out of high school, Aaron Quinonez (Sgt Q) was trained to fight the enemy and was prepared for war. When he volunteered for a combat tour in Iraq, little did he know his real battle would be fought in his mind. After eight years of military service, Sgt Q suffered from depression, anger, and panic attacks and was diagnosed with PTSD. Unknowingly he nearly ended his own life in the parking lot of a church.  It was this close call with suicide and a sign where Sgt Q found Jesus and the church, which gave him life, faith and a new purpose.

Turning his life around Sgt Q is now a successful business owner, public speaker, mental health ambassador, Q Missions founder and author of his recently released book "Healing through service - A warriors guide to overcoming trauma"

Tune in to parts 2 & 3 to follow his inspirational story and ongoing mission.
