Chief Master Sergeant Jason David, USAF (Retired), is a 22-year veteran who first joined the Air Force as a radio and television broadcaster. His unique position within the military, interfacing with a wide variety of personalities, provided him with a wealth of experience that he now intends to share with the world.

Veterans often find purpose in the military and lose it upon coming home. David advocates for greater awareness of veteran suicide and shares the many resources available to veterans, both within and outside of the VA. He also recounts the story of how he earned his Purple Heart—a tragic event that has since shaped his life and galvanized his decision to fight for veterans’ rights to live normal lives in the US.
