MIKE ERGO: EP 10
A Transition From War.
Mike Ergo served as a Marine rifleman with 1st Battalion, 8th Marines from 2001-2005 and deployed to Iraq twice. After flying home from Iraq and being honorably discharged, Mike's real struggles began. Mike found himself anxious, confused, angry, grief-stricken, and out of place. He turned to drugs and alcohol to cope with his unprocessed trauma, but this led him even further down the path of destruction.
In July of 2012, his unhealthy decisions and excessive use of substances led him to hit rock bottom.
Mike knew he needed to make significant changes, and step by step, he began the journey to reclaim his life, health, and relationships.
Through meditation and endurance sports, he found comfort in discomfort. But, most importantly, he found a new purpose. That purpose is to serve veterans transitioning from battlefield to civilian life and inspire anyone to dream big.
Listen to Mike's incredible story.
