EP-86 | Brad Genereux | US Navy SEABEE | Camino De Santiago | PTSD
Brad Genereux spent 22 years serving in the USN as a SEABEE. As a career military man, Brad Genereux deployed eleven times around the globe. Deployment demons pursued him until Brad confronted the inner darkness stalking his days and nights while walking the Camino de Santiago, a 500-mile pilgrimage in northern Spain. During his own pilgrimage on the “Camino de Santiago” in Spain, he found self-discovery, healing, and redemption as he trekked the 500 miles to the end of the earth. Recently he said “conflict is as old as mankind, but technology has taken away the lag time in returning from combat to “normal life.” The Camino de Santiago provides a means of processing what took place on the battlefield without going from Afghanistan to Walmart in 24 hours.” His passion is now focused on helping other veterans struggling with isolation, hypervigilance, nightmares, or insomnia by joining him Every Spring and Fall when Brad leads other veterans on the Spanish path to peace. This pilgrimage is called “Veterans on the Camino”. Visit https://veteransonthecamino.com/ to learn more about Veterans on the Camino.
