Great man, leader in the community for civilians and veterans. Has had a lasting impression on my family and I and i'm on his side till the end.
I first heard Andrew at a Blue Star Moms meeting in Mesa, AZ about 3
Yrs ago. His testimonial about his service in the Marine Corps amd his struggles after, then his new found faith in Christ was moving. I ordered his book and have supported him and his organization since. When I was with another non profit that helps our Veterans and active duty military, we were at one of his events and also supported his events and speaking engagements on our facebook page.
Andrew, Thank you so much for sharing your story and faith amd helping others to see their potential and purpose for life!!
Hello guys my name is Ignacio luera junior and I am United States Marine corps veteran. I served 2007 to 2011 which I was deployed to Iraq Fallujah in 2008 and during my deployment my wife was diagnosed with osteosarcoma a bone cancer that quickly took over her and so she passed away in 2009. Wish the death of my wife along with a couple diagnosis I found myself undeployable and miss my opportunity to go to Afghanistan in 2010. Ponca City now I made some mistakes that led to my court-martial. It was a crappy hand I was dealt but soon in the Future I will find out those setbacks will lead to Major comebacks. When I was released from the Marine corps I experienced a lot of guilt shame depression you name it I was diagnosed with it a letter to alcohol abuse medication abuse physical abuse and emotional abuse. One day I was tired of feeling sick and tired and I reached out to the Lord and they delivered in Angel his name was Andrew Jones. I don't know the specifics on how what where but I do know that he was able to relate to me and he took his time and at that time that's all I wanted was someone to hear me out it was able to do that and more. Cuz I'm on my way I talk to him it was a bond that we still have strong to this day Andrew was able to break through a harden shell of a heart.he personally escorted me and kept me company while I admit myself to a mental health facility he sucked to his core beliefs and pellitteri are not that's just the way he is he won't leave your side and he will remain in the fight with you 4 or near communication is always available. I have examples Ocala at times he assisted me where is personal battles he really made my demons his enemies and vice versa. Andrew will believe in you when no one else
would. He furnished an apartment and put clothes in my closet and food in my shelves all the thing a few hours. He has volunteers willingly accepting anything outside and now as a team they lighten the load and made it easier to achieve small goals at hand Andrew has away of speaking to you weaving through the unnecessary and getting to the truth. I could continue to go on about my brother in Christ and mentor. But this is a review thank u for your time good bless you who ever is reading this and if u have further more questions email me. Thank you!

I have personally watched Andrew touch the lives of so many people over the years with his words of compassion and encouragement. He is a true professional and an asset to any organization looking for inspiration.
First and foremost, Andrew is a rare breed. When he speaks, he brings true passion and conviction with him. The stories and experiences he shares are not fables or made up stories to appeal to your emotions. The man has truly been there and done it. To be where Andrew has been in his life to where he is now, is a testament of the strength, power, drive and seemingly, endless ambition the man has. Some of Andrew's key traits beyond his uncanny ability to speak and communicate effectively, are his resilience and consistency. Andrew is a man that never gives up when he is focused on a mission. Just like the Marine Corps. Andrew's mission is different though. Andrew is on a mission to impact your life in any positive way there is. From spiritual enlightenment to realizing the necessity of choosing life over death, everyone could learn something from Andrew. I have attended training meetings, seminars and conferences where Andrew has spoke at for years. I am very proud and humbled to know Andrew and consider him both a friend and a brother. If you ever happen to cross paths with Andrew in this life, take a minute to exchange a few words with him. You will be glad that you did.
Andrew is the perfect example of mental strength. Being a USMC Vet myself, his testimony and outlook on life has helped me cope with my inner battles. His perspective on life has motivated me to seek self care and believe in something higher than myself.
Where do I begin?
I first heard Andrew speak at an intro to suicide prevention course for veterans battling with PTSD. Having grown up around the military, I have always held admiration and appreciation for our veterans and I attended the session expecting to support. Little did I know that I would be face-to-face with a deeply rooted sadness of my past. I had thankfully overcome thoses emotions but never acknowledged the root cause.
Andrew's session uprooted a desire to dig deep into really understanding the cause behind my suicidal attempt over a decade ago. I have attended a few more sessions since and each time have learned something new.
Through these workshops, I also learned that many people can be impacted by PTSD, outside of the veteran community. It really hit home when our foster child was diagnosed with PTSD. Andrew and his crew were very supportive and understanding of the struggle but very willing to talk us through the emotions it draws. Having the ability to see PTSD through different lenses helps to support the person battling it.
Above and beyond that, Andrew encourages people to choose life and connect with their purpose. His motivating and straight forward honesty makes it easy to receive the message being shared. He and Chelsea have done a great job sharing their experiences while remaining humble and human. The most doen to earth people I have met.
Captivating, inspiring, powerful, real, brutally honest and loyal to the death. The day I met Andrew he made me cry. That’s how I knew he would make a fantastic speaker for our Veteran fundraising event. Since that day, I’ve attended classes and events with Andrew and let me tell you he was put on this earth to be a beacon of light. Andrew is a truly talented motivator and will Inspire you to be the best version of yourself you can possibly be. (you also have to hear him roar) I’m blessed to be able to witness his journey as he continues his mission to advocate for his fellow veterans in whatever way he is able. If you’re considering Andrew as a speaker, stop it. You’ve found your guy.
I have had the pleasure of watching Andrew work with current military servicemen and women, as well as, veterans and young people. He always brings the same heart, passion, and conviction to any occasion he speaks. His willingness to be vulnerable in front of a room full of strangers gives power to his words and his truth sways many heart and uplifts those around him. Andrew is an exceptional individual and an even greater motivator and source of inspiration for others.
Why choose me?
Impacting the military & veteran communities with a message of overcoming PTSD & suicide.
