Military Veteran Dad

The Challenges of Being a Military Veteran Dad

Today we are focusing on military fathers. Before we get into the show, we thank you for serving our country and providing a safe place for us to raise our families. This episode is for you.

Ben Killoy is a veteran and the host of the Military Veteran Dad Podcast and his mission is to bring every dad home. We’re not just talking about being physically home. We’re talking about the special challenges of being a military veteran dad.

Servicemen are gone for long periods of time. The normal world continues while they’re deployed, and their families learn to live without them. Once military dads return home, they lose their uniform and go from being Superman to Clark Kent overnight. It’s a huge adjustment that can leave a soldier lost as to who he is and wondering how to become part of his family, workplace, and community again.

Ben Killoy talks about how military fathers can readjust to family life, become great leaders in their circle of influence, and leave a lasting legacy for their kids.

debrief to win accountable leadership

Debrief to Win with former Top Gun Instructor Robert “Cujo” Teschner

Who knows how to rapidly assess, respond, and adapt under extreme pressure better than a Top Gun fighter pilot? Today we are super-psyched to have Top Gun instructor Robert “Cujo” Teschner on the show! He’s releasing his book called Debrief to Win: How High-Performing Leaders Practice Accountable Leadership. He is also a husband, a father of five children, and a cancer survivor.

You don’t get to Cujo’s level without doing the work and prepping yourself to win at all costs. He reveals that even though his military career was taking off, he was failing in other dimensions of his life. One day he realized that if he applied his elite training to his health and family, he would dominate across the board.

Listen to his Debrief to Win system to set yourself up for a successful mission no matter what the dogfight of life throws at you.

Robert “Cujo” Teschner

Robert “Cujo” Teschner is a retired, multiple award-winning United States Air Force fighter pilot. He was the 125th F-15C Instructor at the Air Force Weapons School – the Air Force “TOP GUN” Program. He commanded the 7th Fighter Squadron “Screamin’ Demons,” one of America’s only front-line operational F-22 squadrons. He won multiple awards for flying excellence and was promoted to the rank of full-Colonel. He has multiple advanced degrees and also spent his entire career leading high-performance teams to success. This earned him the callsign “Cujo,” the warrior that flew combat missions over the skies of Iraq.

He’s proud to be a dad and believes his number one job is to raise his kids.

“I don’t lose. That’s my culture. We’re going to be facing adversity every day. It’s not a question of if it’s going to happen, it’s how you’re going to react to it.”—Robert “Cujo” Teschner

Jason Redman

Jason comes from a long line of family who served in the military. He knew he wanted to be a Seal since he was a kid. He was always fascinated with heroes. In the late 80s early 90s there was very little info about the teams and the mystique around the SEALs stoked his furnace and sparked his curiosity. No one would ever expect him to actually make his dream come true. He blossomed late when it came to athletics. In 9th grade he was still 5ft tall and 100 pounds. People laughed when he told them he wanted to be a SEAL.

'If someone told me I couldn’t do something. It made me want to do it that much more. That’s a blessing and a curse sometimes.' - former Navy SEAL @JasonRedmanWW #dads #men #fathers #greatness Click To Tweet

In his early years, this attitude helped him push through situations, including the brutal BUD/S training. He made it to the SEALs and began his whirlwind of a military career.

What You’ll Learn

  • How he damaged his reputation by letting his ego get him involved in a firefight in which he didn’t belong
  • The firsthand account of how while on an operation to capture an Al Qaeda High Value Individual, his assault team came under the ambush that led to his injuries
  • What he felt like and thought about when he knew he was dying
  • How he prayed to God and was given the strength to board the rescue chopper under his own power
  • His advice to the average man who takes everyday gifts for granted
  • How he struggled and coped with his facial disfigurement
  • What his famous sign at the hospital said and how it came to be
  • How leaders are always on duty
  • How dads are always leaders
  • His 6 tenets of success
    • Overcome
    • Live greatly
    • Love deeply
    • Stay humble
    • Lead always
    • Live life with no regrets
  • About his second book coming out
  • About online show
  • About his acting debut in an indie film
