Chad Robichaux’s story is an incredible journey of tragedy to triumph.He served his country proudly as a Special Operations Force Recon Marine, served on a JSOC Task Force on 8 deployments to Afghanistan in the War on Terror, and had a successful career as a Pro MMA Champion.
Despite those achievements Chad faced many hardships. After Afghanistan Chad was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and his marriage and family life was left in shambles. Through the faithful discipleship of a local Christian man, God redeemed Chad’s life, marriage and family. After experiencing this life change, Chad and his wife Kathy founded The Mighty Oaks Foundation in order to reach other Veterans, Active Duty Service Members and their families who are dealing with the same crisis in their lives due to their military service.
Chad is a widely sought after public speaker and subject matter expert on PTSD, Military and
Veterans’ issues providing advisory to the nation's highest ranking flag officers and advised the current presidential administration on the best and most-effective faith-based solutions for veteran’s care. Chad has testified in Veterans’ Court regarding combat trauma and PTSD, wrote a best-selling book on the subject and has been featured on such media outlets as Fox News, Forbes, The OReily Factor, USA Today, Christian Post, Focus on The Family, The 700 Club, and a short biography film by I Am Second.
