Passion Struck with John R. Miles

Andrew Marr On Living With a Never Quit Mentality While Overcoming the Wounds of War EP 95

January 4, 2022

Andrew Marr is a retired Green Beret, co-founder of the Warrior Angels Foundation, and author of "Tales from the Blast Factory." He is also featured in the new documentary "Quiet Explosions." In this Pasion Struck podcast episode, Andrew sits down with John R. Miles to discuss his never-quit mentality overcoming the wounds of war and his traumatic brain injuries.

The two veterans discuss:

  • Andrew's 2013 tour of duty in Afghanistan and his underlying medical issues upon returning home.
  • From personal experience, the two both talk about the long-term effects of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and how it impacted both of their lives.
  • Why navigating the VA is so difficult and their advice for doing so.
  • How Andrew Marr met Dr. Mark Gordon, a neuroendocrinologist, and how they were able to tell their story on the Joe Rogan podcast.
  • How Dr. Gordon uses a personalized approach focused on functional medicine and hormone treatment for TBI recovery
  • How the Warrior Angels Foundation is now helping hundreds of veterans and active duty service members recover from Traumatic Brain Injury.
