Mikal Vega is a Combat Veteran with 22.5 years of military service, nine of those years in Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) and 13 years as a Navy SEAL. He was medically discharged due to combat related injuries suffered during Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), when a roadside IED low ordered while manning the turret of a HMMWV, causing a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI) and severe trauma to the cervical vertebrae.

Mikal was awarded two Bronze Stars with Combat Valor and a Purple Heart from his service in Operation Iraqi Freedom. The Citizen’s Commission on Human Rights chose Vital Warrior founder Mikal Vega as a recipient of the 2014 CCHR Human Rights Award.

After nearly dying from a cocktail of pharmaceuticals prescribed to him for symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress, Mikal decided to find a better way. Four years ago, he founded Vital Warrior, a non profit organization and system of non-pharmaceutical rebalancing designed by a Mikal himself. This system is geared towards alleviating the detrimental effects of acute stress in its clients without the use of pharmaceutical drugs. www.vitalwarrior.org

This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery, as survivor's share their experience, strength & hope.

This is a "we" recovery program, because it is in the "we," that we find the new "me."

We focus on the four A's of Recovery: Awareness, Acceptance, Action and Adaptation. This is a place for survivor's striving to become thrivers.
