Guest: Chad Robichaux
On February 20, 2022, Russia began its invasion of Ukraine. Within days of the attack, Chad Robichaux (pronounced Row-ba-show), a retired U.S. Marine and the founder of Save Our Allies, was on the ground helping evacuate disabled Ukrainians as well as a catastrophically wounded Fox News reporter. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Chad shares with Dr. Tim Clinton his “boots on the ground” experience in the conflict and the ongoing humanitarian crisis that goes beyond what the media portrays. He also details the tenacity of the Ukrainian people returning to their homeland, determined to help in the fight against the Russians.
After eight tours of duty in Afghanistan, Chad Robichaux (Row-ba-show) had seen it all. From the brutality of the Taliban to witnessing the deaths of 15 fellow soldiers, he began to suffer from debilitating panic attacks. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Chad says, “Imagine you’re drowning in a swimming pool and handcuffed to the bottom. How desperate would you feel to get one breath of air?” That was his level of panic 24/7. When he returned to America, his extreme PTSD led to a suicide attempt in his bedroom closet. Thankfully, Chad trusted Christ as his Savior and today, he serves active duty, military veteran and first responder communities with faith based trauma and resiliency programs.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is a spiritual wound. That’s the contention of Chad Robichaux (Row-ba-show), a retired U.S. Marine who served eight tours of duty in Afghanistan. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Chad explains that his crippling panic attacks were God-sent, a way for his body to cope with trauma. Today, he counsels people with PTSD to recognize that medication should be a pitstop on the road to recovery, not the destination. The antidote is the peace of God through a relationship with Christ and solid biblical counseling which does not assign blame.
