Former Marine Pens Book to Help Keep Veterans Alive

Chad Robichaux, founder of Mighty Oaks Foundation and author of the new book An Unfair Advantage, joined Think Tank to talk about his personal battle with PTSD after serving in Afghanistan.

“I got on the other side and realized I wasn’t the only one . . . and I wanted to do something about it,” said Robichaux. “I wanted to give people the same pathway forward that I found.”

Robichaux's Mighty Oaks Foundation has served 1,500 veterans --- and not one has been lost to suicide. While the foundation's program offers one way to assist struggling vets, his new book aims to reach another segment of this community --- those too proud to reach out for help or who think they're alone in feeling "shame, guilt or just purposeless."

Watch the video for a sneak peek and answers to these inspiring questions:

• Did starting Mighty Oaks Foundation help Chad?

• How many copies of An Unfair Advantage have been given to active duty service men and women?

• What was the biggest adjustment in Robichaux's life after coming home from Afghanistan?
