In this episode, Tim and Brock talk with Conrad Jeffries.
Conrad spent 13 years in the military between the Coast Guard and National Guard. Throughout his time in service, he struggled with alcohol and talks openly about his personal struggle against suicide. His understanding of that fight led him to found the Shot At Dawn Project, a veteran suicide solution that uses 'flags' or incidents as triggers to counsel and coach active duty members at the unit level to prevent a future casualty rather than respond to it. Conrad is now a realtor and ultra marathoner, using runs such as the David Goggins Challenge and Moab 240 to raise awareness for veteran suicide and his cause.
