Does that name sound familiar? It should. Remember when those combat vets and great Americans raised money and went to Afghanistan to get one man and ended up saving 17,000 people from the Taliban? That was Chad. You’ve probably seen Chad on the news or had him cross your feed on social media, all for good reason because Chad is a doer and a finisher—a man in the arena, and he’s coming to New Life Church – Greenbrier to tell his story of overcoming adversity, PTSD survival and triumph.
