What Is Dogfighting Depression?

Very few people have had the experience to fly a jet fighter through open air.  Think about that; I’ve been responsible for making an expensive hunk of metal defy gravity.

Flying hundreds of MPH and focused on a target while scanning the skies for oncoming missiles, was both the greatest adrenaline rush and hardest thing I have ever done.

But somewhere over the skies of Afghanistan, a moment happened which rocked my identity.  As I came home depression followed and tore my life apart.

Slowly pulling myself out of this after trial and error, I knew that I needed to do something about veteran depression: so I wrote my book Dogfighting Depression.

I am now your wingman as we dogfight this depression as one unit.
