Chad Robichaux

“He said, ‘You killed me.’”

As a police officer, Chad Robichaux had to make a life-or-death decision. As a Force Recon Marine serving as part of a Joint Special Operations Command Task Force, he witnessed unspeakable evil. Eight tours later those memories still haunted him.

“Somewhere in between when you get there to do something noble and you leave, you become that person yourself.”

His marriage and his family began falling apart. “I was out of control,” he says. “I built a wall between me and my family to protect them from me.”

Then, the PTSD took over. It got so bad, he was removed from duty. He turned to MMA to cope, and became a champion fighter. But not even that could heal the pain from Afghanistan.

With his marriage “dead” and suicidal thoughts filling his head, Chad started searching for answers. His wife began searching too. After revealing what she found, it led to a crucial decision in Chad’s life.

“My wife had fought for me when I was weak, and now it was my turn to fight for her.”

    Wow! great turn around! I think your saving grace, other then Christ of course, was having women that actually fight for you! In that part of your life you were so so so lucky! I and Im sure many out there reading this have never had that. Relationships ending for the dumbest of reasons. You found a Unicorn in her for sure! What a women and outstanding job hanging in there. Obviously those that come here have are own battle. You do not come here if life is grand. Fantastic Christ has came into your life and completely turned it around. I know many of us out here that pray we can find a partner like the one God blessed you with. Many of us dont.
