19: Want to Really Thank a Veteran?

JJ is joined by Kyleanne Hunter, who in addition to her role as Brady Vice President of Programs is a U.S. Marine Corps combat veteran who served multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan as an AH-1W “Super Cobra” attack pilot. They talk with Ted Bonar, a clinical psychologist specializing in veterans, PTSD, depression, and gun safety.

In this episode, we cover:

  • Why Veteran's Day can be tough on active-duty military and veterans;
  • Why you shouldn't thank veterans for their service;
  • How to ask the hard questions about depression, PTSD, and suicide;
  • And how to keep those we love, and ourselves, safe from gun violence.

JJ and Ky also discuss what happens when guns are raffled off in schools (spoiler: it's not good!), a gun violence prevention hero, and why we need to talk more about suicide when we talk about gun violence.
