The Warrior’s Journey works to raise awareness and create preventative resources to help educate and prepare our warriors for their time in the military and beyond.
TWJ worked with a data team at The Harvard School of Business and the United States Chaplain Corps at the Pentagon to identify the most common challenges faced by our warriors. Addressing these challenges before they become a crisis is key to prevention and ongoing resilience. These challenges represent physical, emotional, and spiritual questions. TWJ continues to create digital and physical resources to raise awareness and prevention across these challenges.
In 2021, TWJ provided presentations to 190,009 warriors and military leaders. Additionally, TWJ participated in 53 in-person events.
There are great organizations that help warriors with the physical wounds of combat, but often the invisible wounds go unrecognized and far too often lead to brokenness, addiction, and suicide. TWJ specializes in recognizing and addressing these invisible wounds.
Blake was born and raised in central Illinois. He joined the military to play laser tag and play with tanks. He reported to his Active Duty Unit on the morning of 9/11. In his six short years in the Infantry, he was awarded a Combat Infantryman Badge, Army Good Conduct Medal, Army Achievement Medal, 4 Army Commendation Medals, and a Purple Heart for wounds he sustained from a roadside bomb while deployed to Iraq. Blake has traveled around the country after returning from the military, sharing his experiences in the army and, more importantly, in combat, which has helped him be a better man of God.
Battling PTSD, like many other combat veterans, he has found many ways to deal with the symptoms of being exposed to trauma in combat. He knows he has been called to share his experiences and message of hope and freedom. Blake has been working in the veteran’s environment for over fifteen years. He has held the role of Veteran Service Officer and Field Examiner for the state and federal VA. Blake is currently the Chief Operations Officer with The Warrior’s Journey. He helps provide relevant content and a broad network of support to all in the military community and their families. He has been happily married for 18 years to Jackie, and they have two boys, Spencer and Grayson.Contact the Organizer Contact the Organizer
