CEO @austin5789, "We all think we are going through this alone and that we are the only one experiencing difficulties at our darkest moment. One of my personal role models @derekweida who is a huge advocate for veterans and has helped me more than he will ever know is battling and showing that we all have our demons. Stay strong brother! You have lifted me up in times that I have had the same thoughts. Keep fighting." #honor #phalanxfitness #vets4life #preventingveteransuicide #marines #army #fighting #veteran #military #brothers #hero #dontgiveup #instagood #picoftheday

Serious question... being fake to me is one of the utmost disrespectful things you can do. It is an intentional means of belittling someone behind their back. I have always wondered how this benefits anyone. If I like you, I'll tell you. If I don't I will confront you about it to resolve a situation. I'm curious as to how people see this as a productive means of handling situations?

Sometimes as a nation we fail to realize that patriotism isn't a blind loyalty for our nation, but rather a continued love and dedication to it. Through its faults it is still the greatest nation, and @hannah_christel understands that love, and she understands that her dedication to her country and her dreams are crucial component of a successful and fulfilling life. She deserves our salute today for her continued drive and dedication to her country and her dreams. It's a privilege for us to salute her today! #phalanxfitness #vets4life #preventingveteransuicide #airforce #military #veteran #militarymuscle #fitness #picoftheday #fitnessmotivation #fitnessmodel #fitspo #fit #girlswholift #weightlifting

My story although long hopefully helps someone! My belief is perseverance is continued effort through continued failures. I've failed a lot in life and it took me years to realize I needed to learn from my mistakes and not sulk on my wrongs. My story:
I was once suicidal, more concerned with fitting in and being a part of the group than blazing my own path. Was depressed that I never felt like I belonged. I finally figured out if I couldn't love myself no one else would ever accept me. It took me decades but I finally figured this out, and although I still have my ups and downs I'm proud of who I have become. My life changing moment "Just an average man with an above average dream on my chest. Not content with what I live like the rest. I'm the hero on my own stage that seems like I'm stuck in a rut in my own rage. I never told me miseries to anyone I'd given up on life bitter and done. Had the knife to my wrist feeling like the world would be better off, I knew I wouldn't be missed. Never had dates for the dances and ridiculed for my stances. I had all I could take why was I born a bitter mistake. Had the tears rolling down my face with that kitchen knife I was going to end my battle end my strife. I've been the butt of many a jokes of words and pokes never been a pride to my folks. At the scene where I died I saw a picture of my nieces and nephew starring as I cried. The only thing that made me put down the rage and pick up my life to carry on my play upon that stage. From that day on I knew I'd have to make up for that wrong. I'd have to build myself up and make them proud so I keep battling for Hope singing my joyous song up on loud. I've never been a role model or been someone to look up to but I knew in my heart I had to be something for you. Bryce, Collyn, and Madi I'd be here for you. When a tear rolled down your face I'd make sure I was there to show you your place. I'd show you how you love forward and advance with this I'd show you life is sometimes a battle it isn't always a bliss and and show you that we ever lost you you'd be missed. From the bottom of my heart I'll keep fighting for my life for my dreams until your smile through me it beams."

People are so quick to settle. They want to be accepted, loved, or needed. How about you accept yourself... love yourself... need yourself. Then and only then will other things start working for you. I have only recently started to realize that unless I accept my failures, love my regrets, and channel those mistakes into learning I will never progress in life. Stay focused but stay humble! #focus #loveyourself #inspiration #motivation #fitness #preventingveteransuicide #vets4life #veteran #military #marines #holdstrong #fitspo #goals #dreams

It's the little things in life... I've been lucky enough to have been blessed with some amazing things lately. I've been working nights while going to school, almost finished with my degree, and have a great group of people and a woman that supports me all the time. I've been working to go on an amazing trip with @devan_sicher and been trying to still bring my nonprofit @vets4lifeorg to full fruition. Driving my truck back and seeing the sun come up over the mountains gave me a glimpse is serenity and happiness in the chaos that is life, which in turn allowed me to reflect on these blessings. Thank you for everyone around me that continues to support me! #phalanxfitness #vets4life #preventingveteransuicide #blessed #fitness #motivation #inspiration #loveyourself #lovelife #happy

Everyone is so serious all the time, talking about things they have no clue about, and arguing with each other. You got to take time and be dorky, you have to love yourself. If someone is hating on you, that's their problem NOT YOURS! Keep your head up and love yourself!!! #phalanxfitness #vets4life #preventingveteransuicide #loveyourself #love #dork #beyourself #instagood #instagram #picoftheday #airforce #navy #marines #coastguard #army #veteran #fitspo #fitfam #staypositive

Thank you for your willingness to protect our country, families, and myself. You guys are truly the heroes! God bless you! #phalanxfitness #vets4life #preventingveteransuicide #loveyourself #inspiration #instagood #today #selfless #sacrifices #memorialday #army #marines #coastguard #airforce #navy #brother #selfless #picoftheday

Those that laid down their lives for me are the ones I salute. The ones written on every veterans bracelets, the ones that can no longer carry on, those are who today is for. They are the heroes, and they are the ones I pour out a beer for. They are the ones that ensure I can sleep here in one of the greatest nations on earth. They are the reason I see the light of day, the reason I can hold my head on high, and the reason I feel less than no one. When the voices in my head get louder they are the ones that pull me through. The ones that have their hands on my shoulders to ensure I push forward. Thank you brothers for laying down in honor of this nation even those that don't honor you, for me, and most of all for my family. Semper Fi brothers! #phalanxfitness #vets4life #veteran #memorialday #preventingveteransuicide #service #military #humble #friends #loveyourself #lifting #brother #army #navy #marines #coastguard #airforce #picoftheday #instagram #instagood #inspiration #loveyourself #today #selfless

Memorial Day a remembrance not a celebration/party. It isn't Veterans Day, and this is where the disconnect is with veterans that hate "happy Memorial Day" and those that don't understand the difference. We love you for your support but it is a completely different meaning. Just remember and honor those that have passed. #phalanxfitness #vets4life #preventingveteransuicide #memorialday #veteran #marines #navy #coastguard #army #nationalguard #building #loveyourself #friends #lifting #lifteachother #humble

This notion is what kills me. We have lost countless lives because we have a preconceived notion of strength. Be strong and seek help if you need it! Don't battle fights alone. Be there for one another! #phalanxfitness #vets4life #preventingveteransuicide #friends #building #worktogether #suicideprevention #seekhelp #loveyourself #love #power #lifteachother

#Kickstarter rewards are making their way to our supporters! A big thank you to those that pledged! We exceeded our goal of $35,000! #veterans #imheretolisten #OZapp #preventingveteransuicide #oneistoomany

We would like to thank the @minnesotawild for teaming up with us to fundraise for Objective Zero at tonight's game! A portion of tickets sold will be donated to our organization! A huge kudos to one of our amazing volunteers, Jake, for helping set this up! #veterans #NHL #wildwin #preventingveteransuicide #objectivezero #oneistoomany #fundraising #OZapp

What you want to believe isn't my responsibility. What you want to believe doesn't alter me. I spent too many nights wishing I wasn't so "fat", wishing I wasn't so "ugly" and praying I could be a little more "popular". What you believe of me has no strength over me. I'm a sinner, I've developed a hardened heart, and a lessened soul. But what you want to believe will never alter me. This smile is a badge of hope I've earned as I've started to love myself no matter my mistakes. #phalanxfitness #vets4life #preventingveteransuicide #marines #smile #happier #loveyourself #fitfam #instagram #instagood #picoftheday #strength #power

Talk about desire, passion, and motivation! These two women are unbelievable! I couldn't begin to describe their hard work and how humbled I am by them! I'm proud of you ladies and honored to know you! Thank you @fitfabash and @ktmillerfit for everything! #bikini #vets4life #preventingveteransuicide #picoftheday #buildeachotherup #fitness #fitspo #instagood #beauty #amazing #america

I think the most crucial step in life is loving yourself. Others will always try and bring you down, some will hate you, and others may even talk behind your back while being polite to your face. Don't let them alter you love for yourself or your aspirations. Continue to grow. The love you have for yourself and your mistakes make you who you are. You are so rare and so beautiful. Keep your head up and never change no matter what others say!!! #loveyourself #phalanxfitness #vets4life #veteran #military #militarymuscle #preventingveteransuicide #instagood #inspiration #motivation #marines #love #support #picoftheday #fitspo #fitness #fitness #fitfam #buildeachotherup

We need to judge ourselves before we judge others... we are so quick to destroy friendships/relationships without understanding someone else's path. We need to work on better understanding and supporting each other. This hypocrisy needs to stop. #phalanxfitness #vets4life #preventingveteransuicide #fitspo #fitspiration #picoftheday #instagood #motivation #inspiration #support #military #veteran

I can say I have met some astonishing and beautiful people in my life, but these women are amongst the most amazing people I have had the privilege of meeting. They are so strong, ambitious, loving, and intelligent. Each one of them gave so much for me and continue to encourage me to better myself. Thank you ladies for the love and compassion you have shown to me and everyone you meet! @hunnybunsfit @ashleykiyo @fitfabash @ifbbpro_ashleyjenelle @meredith_mack @ktmillerfit @erin_gunther_ @sparklebfit

I wish war was just a game we played when we were kids. I wish war was just a memory long forgotten or could be something that we never did. There are countless generations that humbly followed in their fathers boots, young men and women that bleed red white and blue... it was in their roots. I wish it was something we never had to see, something that was a mystery to you and me. Blessed be the generations that never answer the call and God bless those that had to make the ultimate fall. Their lives are worth so much more than yours and mine and it's a breed harder and harder to find. I've hung up my boots but I still wish war was a game we all played when we were kids... something that as a nation we never did... just a game we played when we were kids.

Serious question... being fake to me is one of the utmost disrespectful things you can do. It is an intentional means of belittling someone behind their back. I have always wondered how this benefits anyone. If I like you, I'll tell you. If I don't I will confront you about it to resolve a situation. I'm curious as to how people see this as a productive means of handling situations?

"Suicide is not the end of pain, but rather the transfer of that pain to someone else..." Remember those around you go through hidden battles you'll never know. Remember those around you may smile to hide the pain filling within them. From personal experience on both ends of suicide, I know that things can become bleak and I know that in a moment there are decisions you can never take back. Please reach out! And please build each other up! Your words can change someone's choice. Your hug could take their finger off the trigger.

Look at your life and find what you can change. Stop demanding perfection from others, when you yourself cannot maintain perfection. Stop being so quick to judge especially if you don't know their story. #phalanxfitness #vets4life #preventingveteransuicide #marines #veterans #fitspo #fitspiration #motivation #inspiration #love #instagood #picoftheday #loveyourself
