Jimmy Hatch was in that fabled, secretive Navy unit for 15 years—living life at a high frequency, experiencing hidden dimensions of Iraq and Afghanistan, fighting alongside men (and dogs) that he loved.
And then he got shot trying to rescue Bergdahl. Ejected from the life he knew, and ashamed of what he thought were his failures, he put a gun in his mouth. Friends and strangers took extraordinary action to save both his leg and his mind. Initially, they succeeded at the first of those tasks, but Jimmy worked hard to ensure they would fail at the second.
It turns out that even for this kind of extreme brokenness, there are tools. They were given to Jimmy. And now he wants to give them to you. Because we've all got wounds.
