THE Wartime Leadership Podcast: The Resiliency of Vietnam War veteran, my hero, my father…Howard Coy. This special Father’s Day addition is an interview 42 years in the making, literally. Growing up the son of a traveling Assembly of God minister was never easy. Many times, the food choices were limited and the pay was never very much yet the family thrived at taking care of each other. At a moment’s notice, the family would pick up and move to another location After graduating high school my dad sought stability during a time of war. He voluntarily joined the Air Force not wanting to take a chance of being drafted into another “less desirable” branch.
During this episode, Howard walks us through his definition of Spiritual Resilience and how it got him through 2 back-to-back tours in Vietnam. He navigates us through daily life while serving and the level of decision making, he was forced to make while feeding information directly to the White House. He covers a very low point that continues to affect him to this day and shaped his ‘why’ in helping veterans receive the full amount of benefits due to them. From coming home to a mostly ungrateful country to solidifying his legacy as my brother, Christian, and I both entered and serve(d) in the United States Air Force, this episode is the most meaningful one for me. Welcome home dad, welcome home.
