The following is an excerpt from: Successful Student
An education should involve learning life skills that a person will carry with them after college in order to navigate relationships and careers and be a well-rounded, successful person. This article has compiled 20 life skills not taught in school, which are valuable in life in general. Though high school and college is excellent in teaching many valuable skills, our current academic curriculum doesn’t teach many aspects necessary to succeeding and thriving in life in general, such as financial responsibilities and investments, how to think logically–retaining information and not merely temporarily memorizing information, and how to apply such abilities to real-world scenarios which are bound to occur.

What does the word “education” mean to you? Does it mean all those years studying subjects in school that didn’t interest you in the least? Does it mean going to college to find out more about those same subjects — or hopefully how to practice your passion?
In life, however, education and learning are more often than not lessons that are learned outside a classroom. Perhaps you never learned how to speak up for yourself. Maybe it’s how to step outside the “norm” to live the life you were called to live but fear held you back. Or it could even be as “simple” as learning how to forgive.
During this show, my energetic and passionate co-hosts and I will explore and discuss all aspects and definitions of education — both inside the classroom and out. This is one show you won’t want to sleep through!!

Veterans At SeaThe purpose of the “Operation Restore Hope – Retreat” program is to significantly enhance the lives of
wounded veterans, their families and caregivers through self-care and peer support. Achieving this purpose ...
will also have a direct effect on the communities where these families live, by reducing the high risk of family

I am a native Texan and in 1990 I graduated from Southwest High School in Fort Worth, TX. After high school I went to MCRD San Diego, while in the Marine Corps I served as a Heavy Gunner in Weapons Company 3rd Battalion 1st Marines. While I was assigned to 3/1 I took and passed the Indoct for Recon. Upon completion of my deployment with 3/1 I went to 1st Recon Battalion where I served as a Point Man/Navigator in a six-man Recon Team and also as training cadre for Indocts and RIP Classes. I was honorably discharged from the Marines in ’96.After the Marines I got a job working on Commercial and Industrial Boilers and in 2004 one of the boilers I was working on exploded on me and I sustained a TBI and SCI C1-C6. I spent several years in recovery at places like Craig Institute in Colorado, Centre for Neuro Skills in California, several local hospitals and home. During this time I had to learn how to read and understand or comprehend what I just read as well as how to do math again. Not to mention many other life skills old and new that many of us take for granted on a daily basis.
