And I think one of my big driving factors, and I know Brent can attest to this as well, is not having those marines or those soldiers, whoever you send out of that wire come back, that guilt will plague you for a long time, and I know personally, in my own heart, that is my driving factor, that’s my passion, that’s my love for Vetality, is to not have anybody else not come back to the wire.” –Mike Owen, co-founder of

Vetality Corp

Part I: Separation Anxiety

“Certain situations and certain feelings and emotions, I would call it as a separation anxiety. Separating from what you knew and what made you effective into who you are right now.”—Mike

Part II: Stateside
