Episode 16: "Living is the Most Punk Shit I've Ever Done", w/ Former Green Beret, Zack Garner
In this episode, JD and Willie sit down with return guest, Zack Garner. You may remember Zack from Episode 11 where we heard his story of trauma and recovery.Life has it's ups and downs, and Zack is now enjoying a series of fortunate events. He's fresh off the 7x Project where he travelled across the world visiting 6 of 7  continents for a series of runs, swims, and sky dives collectively with the team involved. After that he joined Task Force Dagger for a MIA dive off the coast of Saipan, attempting to recover the remains of WWII Service Members.On top of the stories of adventure, this may be the funniest episode to date. The boys somehow get on the topic of changing the Virginia flag to include not one, but two respectable breasts. Yep.If you need a laugh, this one is for you!0:00-6:25    Introduction6:25-20:13    Last Podcast Opened Doors and Helped Me Heal20:13-32:55    How Do We Cope with Not Meeting Our Own Expectations?32:55-53:49    MEDEVAC Podcast, 7x Challenge53:49-1:08:45    MIA diving off the coast of Saipan1:08:45-1:19:39    Getting Through Failures1:19:39-1:32:00    Leaving Your Mark1:32:00-1:57:12    Imposter Syndrome1:57:12-2:01:35    2023 Hero Games2:01:35-2:06:08    Changing the Virginia Flag2:06:08 Closing   Support the Show.Hero Games Charity Website: https://herogamescharity.com/HGC Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/herogamescharity/JD's Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jdxhgc/Johnny's Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/johnnty5/Willie's Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/freewillie1776/HGC Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/HeroGamesCharity/
