Last week, SOAA board member Andrew Marr, a retired Special Forces Green Beret, had the opportunity along with Dr. Mark Gordon to sit down with Joe Rogan on his podcast, the Joe Rogan Experience. Their episode lasted a few hours, and Andrew was able to share about his work helping Veterans and others who suffer from Traumatic Brain Injury through his organization, Warrior Angels Foundation.
You can listen below and fast forward to 121:20 where Andrew and Joe talk about the problem of SOF suicides and treatment options. Andrew refers to an article that he wrote on our blog about a SOCOM study on suicides among SOF members. In the episode, Andrew mentions, “Special Operators are committing suicide 30% greater than the regular military…” and this is a major problem.
