This year we are so excited to feature Dr. Damon Friedman.
Dr. Damon Friedman is a combat decorated veteran who served four combat deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan in support of the Global War on Terrorism. Originally, he was a US Marine Corps officer and later transferred into the Air Force’s elite as a Special Tactics Officer (aka: Combat Controller). Dr. Friedman’s personal decorations include three Bronze Stars (one with Valor) and the Air Force Combat Action Medal. Dr. Friedman is a sought after speaker with expertise in leadership, war, discipleship, and empowers people to become world changers. He is an emerging leader spearheading a movement to bring hope and healing to men, women and families dealing with the scars of war. Just recently Dr. Friedman received the Spirit of Hope Award by the Department of Defense which recognizes his efforts to help the veteran community.
In April 2010, then Captain Friedman under the direct leadership of four-star General Stanley McChrystal, deployed as the lead Joint Terminal Attack Controller to the Korengal Valley, Afghanistan. This region was dubbed the “Valley of Death” as 44 US servicemen died there and hundreds were wounded. Captain Friedman was tasked with defending US forces during the closure of the Korengal Combat Outpost. While under direct and indirect hostile fire, he engaged multiple Taliban fighters with close air support which resulted in killing and wounding over 40 enemy and destroying several fighting positions to include the famous Restrepo during final extraction.
In 2011 Dr. Friedman and his wife Dayna, established SOF Missions, a faith-based non-profit organization whose goal is to raise awareness to the suicide epidemic among veterans and sponsor individual veterans on a path to find hope and purpose in their lives. SOF Missions creates awareness through film, and provides support through national groups and education; and for veterans in dire need, a holistic path to wellness: psychological, physical and spiritual. To date, SOF Missions has served over 80k globally.
