Troy Rathke returns to tell the story of the adventure the will shape the idea for what he is going to accomplish with his non-profit and yearly retreat of Vision Quest West: A Mission to Live.

The song for the week: Not Alone by Doc Todd ft. Bingx.

If you don’t know, Doc Todd is a veteran Navy Combat medic that by using hip-hop, he is trying to inspire other vets to find purpose through the creative arts. He also served with Troy, and I could not think of a better person to be featured on this episode than him. You can find Doc’s links below to his music, as well as the CNN interview. He’s been on multiple podcasts such as Vantage Point, the podcast for the Department of the US Veteran Affairs. We are honored to feature his song.
