Thank you for tuning in to Chosen Generation. Chosen Generation. If your church or group would like to have Pastor Greg come and share his passion to raise up a chosen generation, he is available to bring that same life-changing message and anointing to your event.

Again, that number is 830-446-3624. Give us a call and keep on listening because you are God's chosen generation. Welcome to Chosen Generation with your host, Pastor Greg Young. And welcome to the program. Great to have you with me. Thanks so much for tuning in. I do know you have a choice of where you can listen each and every day, and I thank you for keeping it attuned here to Chosen Generation Radio.

Got a great program lined up for you today, folks. Bottom of hour number two, Matt Bellus, Communications Director for Liberty HealthShare joins us. We'll be talking about health care freedom. How can you obtain health care freedom today? Health care is a major concern for I think everybody across the country, and Liberty HealthShare has ways in which you can have control again of your health care.

Very important for you to have control of that. Also joining me, top of the next hour, we'll be talking about the struggle for One America. I've got a couple of signed, autographed, free books to give away today, so we'll be talking with you about that with the authors, Daphne Barak and Mayor Erbil Gunasti, and also Money B, who is featured in the book, will be with us at the top of the next hour. Bottom of this hour, Matt Long joins us.

Each Tuesday we join Matt Long, The Matt Long Show on Hill Country Patriot Radio as well, and we'll be with Matt. We're going to be talking about a number of things, but in particular, what's up with this new shutdown? They're talking about another shutdown, more mask mandates, and so on and so on, and at what point are we going to be having to be engaged in some form of civil disobedience, because the science actually proves just the opposite of what they want us to believe, or try to make us believe. So we'll talk about that. And what about the border? You know, they're concerned about every American citizen having this injection. Every American citizen must be masked. That's the new thing now they're trying to bring back into our culture once again as they prepare us for the coming dark winter, except on the border, where 20% of those that come across illegally are testing positive for COVID, and we're not worried about you, let's just release you. So we'll talk about that.

And the Whataburger just recently, where we had those that had been quarantined to their hotel that were, oh, you know, let's just eat out in public in a public restaurant where we can, I don't know, spread the disease to everybody. Interesting. We'll talk about all that coming up with Matt. Well, join me now, and I'm very, very pleased to have him as a veteran myself.

This is an issue that's very near and dear to my heart. He just completed his ride on his Harley Davidson motorcycle across the country 3000 miles to raise awareness for veteran suicide. He is the CEO, the executive director, I'm sorry, of Save the Brave.

He is also the author of Echo in Ramadi. He spent 24 years serving our nation, both as enlisted and as commissioned, and his career span 10 deployments. I want to welcome retired USMC Major Scott Eusing.

And Scott, of course, I know that once a Marine, always a Marine, so retired is just kind of really a side thing there. But nonetheless, welcome aboard, Scott. Good to have you. Yeah, thanks for having me on the show. That's great. My pleasure.

My pleasure. You know, we talked about this issue of veteran suicide. There's another story of another Capitol police officer that committed suicide, and I know there's a lot more to that that we could talk about. I'm sure you have some thoughts on that. But the point of this is, is that this issue of suicide is not going away, and it gets very, very little media attention.

Can you speak to that, please? Well, yeah, it's a problem. It's a real concern for the veteran community. And I like to say the ride we did this year, 3161 miles, was to prevent veteran suicide, not raise awareness, because I think there's a difference in those terms. And we want to try and stop it. And we understand it. Save the brave dot org that the numbers never going to be zero. It's just not. There's just some people you can't save.

And that's a tragedy. But nonetheless, that's the brave.org. What we're doing is we're connecting combat veterans who are struggling post-max stress through outreach programs to really do it in one, a safe space and to allow them to reconnect to the people that they know, understand them, but not just do it to give them something and entertain. We want to empower our own and say, hey, you know what? I can do this once they go out fishing on a ride or one of our amazing events.

They say I can do that. I could do this ride in my state or my town or I can do this. That's ultimately the goal is to empower our fellow warriors and let them understand that they're still thousands of people in this country that are concerned and care and love them. And it's not just the nonprofits that are doing it.

And I'll give you an example. This year's ride, like last year, which was started after my good friend in high school made Dave White killed himself in Montana and his mom asked me to give the eulogy in South Carolina. I hopped on my Harley and rode 5,150 miles last year and then the ride took off again this year. But as I was driving through your state, through North Dallas, I thought as I looked in my rear view mirror, that tiny piece of glass, there was 85, 90 Harley riders, firefighters, cops, EMS, civilians, Humvees, all lined up behind me as I looked in and I said, that is support. Those are people that care because they came out, they gave her their time.

This is on a Tuesday afternoon. So to the veterans listening, there's a ton of organizations out there and save the brave.org. It's just one of them trying to do our part to help our own tribe. And we do it because we are men and women of action. As you know, being a veteran yourself, we don't wait for the government to help us out. We don't wait for the VA. We don't wait for handouts.

We take care of our own first and that's something that we're really proud of. Talk to me because we likely have individuals listening today that are either veterans or perhaps are connected to a veteran. What are some of the things if someone listening today is a veteran who has stumbled across the program here and is kind of perked up listening to you saying, okay, speak to me, talk to me, give me something to grab on to or maybe it's the spouse or friend or child of a veteran that's really struggling with this issue. What's something that you would say to them that you would share with them?

I mean, yes, there are people who care, all those kinds of things. But in that moment, what are some of the things that you would encourage them with? They have to engage with whoever that is that's struggling and look for the warning signs and then reach out to a medical professional.

That's what has to be done. I mean, there's a ton of people that are struggling. And again, you don't have to have worn a uniform or served in Ramadi, Iraq to understand those words, service and sacrifice.

We don't own the definitions of those words either. But people that interact with veterans or anybody dealing with that, they have to understand the warning signs. And what we do is if we see someone in distress, as we have the luxury of being on this massive shift, to use a metaphor, and we see someone struggling in the water, you have to throw them a line.

You have to reach out. And if they won't grab the rope, you jump in and you try and pull into safety. But again, there's some people that are just destined to sink. And again, we know those people because the 22 a day, that's not a statistic to me. Those are my friends.

Those are the Marines that serve under my command. We've lost too many to talk about on this show, the suicide. And it's a real problem that we need to address. But we want to do that. So I'm talking to veterans and family members, but also the other 99 percent of the public who always say, oh, how can I help?

How can I go online to say the brave dot org? You can you can help just by seeing what we do. You can help by making a five dollar a month donation that reoccurs at 60 bucks less than the tank of gas.

You're doing something. I mean, look, there are people that talk about doing stuff and then there's people that do stuff. There's people that get on their motorcycle and come out and ride. There's people that go to a local base and volunteer. They go to an American Legion and they volunteer. They do something to help. They don't just talk about it or digest what they see on mainstream media of what what's going on in our community. The veteran community, active duty, because I challenge anyone to get out and do that.

Go boots on the ground and really get some perspective for yourself and not have it been fed to you through the mainstream media, because it's just not being accurately reported. And I'll share this story that happened as I was driving south from Mississippi, Alabama, state route. We pulled in the gas station, Greg. And this is the example of how this ride is such a unifying thing.

And it exposes the best of the human condition to me every time I do it. This young kid in a pickup truck, big country kid, pulls it in. He sees us wearing our T-shirts, these black T-shirts with a ride for the brave logo that looks like the old SDP motor oil. And he says, hey, how can I get one of those shirts?

Right over there, he gets out, buys his shirt, 40 bucks, and makes a donation. And then he tells me about his cousin who served in Iraq. He's a Marine. And all the stuff he went through and how proud he was of him.

And then he gets back in his truck, he shuts the door and windows down, he sticks his head out the window. He says, you guys keep what you're doing. What you're doing matters. It's important.

And he drives away. Right there is a prime example. It was so emblematic of the reality of what the fabric of this amazing country that we fought for is all about. And it was a hardening story to me and just a privilege to meet an American like that. Somebody who gets it, somebody who understands the significance of the effort that's made to, as you said, not just draw awareness, but to prevent, to help someone who's out there realize that they're not alone in whatever the struggle is that they're going through. And that there are a lot of people who want to help. And I know that as we're taught to be self-sufficient and self-reliant and all of these things, and sometimes when you're crumbling and you're falling apart on the inside, it's difficult when you reach down and you can't seem to pull anything up to fight back with. Know that you are not alone in that battle. You don't have to be alone in that battle. We're going to be right back right after this, and we'll get contact information for you, how you can make contact with Save the Brave, how you can make contact with our good friend, Major Scott, coming up right after this.

My special guest is Major Scott Using, USMC retired. Echo in Ramadi is the name of the book. I encourage you to pick up his book Echo in Ramadi and go to savethebrave.org. Savethebrave.org. As we're going into the break, I was mentioning if there's someone out there that's feeling challenged, if you're just at a place where you're feeling alone and you're feeling like I'm disconnected, I would encourage you to contact them at info at savethebrave.org. If you're past that point, if we've reached you right now and you flip the channel and you're hearing us right now, I want you to know number one, it's not by accident, okay?

It is God's divine plan to let you know that your life matters. Don't end it. Call 800-273-8255. 800-273-8255. That's the VA's suicide hotline. Call them today.

800-273-8255. Scott, talk to me about, because we're coming into a close right now, I know we've talked about things that how people can connect with Save the Brave, encouraging a veteran that they may see, whether it's in a restaurant, coffee shop, what have you coming up and just saying, hey, thank you for your service. What are some other things that you would encourage folks to do? Well, that list is long and I'll give you an example that throughout my career in the military and even in life, I could always teach people a lot of things. How to shoot the rifle straighter, how to run faster, I could teach people how to write and communicate better, but there's one thing that I was never able to teach people. I could never teach people how to care. And if you don't care and you don't put yourself out there, you're not willing to connect, you're not willing to show up, then I think it's all for naught.

And that's really a challenge for some people and they just don't know where to begin. So you're on the show today and I'm so grateful you have me on. I'm offering one option. They can go to save the brave dot org and find out about all the amazing things that we've been doing for the last six years and the thousands of veterans and Gold Star family members and first responders that we've helped through our program. And if they can't show up, if they can't volunteer the time, please go make a donation, click, make a donation on our website, make a recurring donation, five, ten dollars a month. You're going to make a difference because we do all of this because we care.

None of us take a salary. We do it all because we want to take care of our own first and not wait for others to do it for us. That's what we're all about. And there's great events you guys host, offshore fishing, jujitsu.

There's scholarships to attend these events. There's a variety of ways in which you can become engaged and help a veteran to get engaged and get started on the track of living life again. Because what they've seen, what they've been through, the challenges that they've experienced in war are things that so many of us can't relate to.

But there are those that can relate to them, that they can connect with and have conversations with and then learn how to move past those things and use skill sets that they've already learned, basic principle skill sets to be very successful in life. Scott, thanks so much for being with us today. We greatly appreciate what you're doing and I'm grateful to be able to offer you this platform and support what you're doing. Thank you. Absolutely.
