Everyone experiences unique challenges in life. Some successfully overcome obstacles and create promising futures; while others are stuck and unable to advance. “The Heart of a Marine – Building a Legacy After the Explosions Have Stopped” provides the framework for those looking to improve their current circumstances. The book tells the story of one Marine’s journey through two combat deployments in Iraq and his transition back into civilian life, the struggles he faced, the decisions he made and the steps he took to improve himself. As an inspirational veteran speaker, Jared shares how he turned his experience of death and destruction into motivation to build a legacy for his family by applying principles he acquired as a US Marine.
