Derek Abbey Ph.D./Project Recover

The Circling Podcast with Adam Short

 On episode #13, I’m joined by Derek Abbey Ph.D., president, and CEO of Project Recover. Project Recover is a collaborative partnership with the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego, and University of Delaware using 21st-century science and technology in a quest to find and repatriate Americans missing in action (MIA) since World War II. The amazing work that Derek and his team are doing provides recognition and closure for families of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.  Project Recover recently released “To What Remains" a stirring, feature-length documentary that follows Project Recover’s search for the more than 80,000 Americans missing in action since World War II. “To What Remains” is screening at the Tower theater on 1.20.22 and available online.Prior to joining Project Recover, Derek served in the United States Marine Corps, first  as an enlisted Marine and ultimately as an F-18 fighter pilot. Derek ended his unique military career as one of the original members of the Marine Forces Special Operations Command known as MARSOC.  Having obtained his Ph.D. in Leadership and described as artful in his leadership style, Derek is helping scale the efforts of Project Recover globally, keeping the promise America has made to her missing service members.  Thanks for your time Derek!

S5 E20 The Fear of Transition: Derek Abbey Pt 2

The Lifegiver Podcast with Corie Weathers

Derek Abbey, PhD joins me again!  I enjoyed my last conversation so much with Derek, I invited him back to share his research on transitioning into the veteran space. Derek says that there are important stages we should all go through in order to help us mature as well-functioning adults. The military sets the perfect conditions by providing almost everything we need as adults. It provides community, a way to progress through rank and accomplishment, and makes many of our decisions for us.  Although the military “saved his life”, Derek shares what he has learned from helping veterans take the next big step in their lives in higher education and helping veterans take the next big step in their lives. The result was a fascinating conversation on what we all need to do to evolve to a better version of ourselves.  Derek Abbey, PhD is a retired Marine and CEO of  Project Recover.

The Lifegiver Podcast with Corie Weathers

Derek Abbey, PhD is a retired Marine and CEO of Project Recover joins me for a fascinating interview where we talk about the importance of leaving a legacy and how Project Recover is healing families’ stories. Project Recover, an international nonprofit that uses the latest in science, technology and archival research, with a mission to find and repatriate the remains of fallen American troops. Derek Abbey says there are 82,000 Americans in uniform missing in the world today. Around 7,000 of those are from the Korean War, with another 1,600 missing from Vietnam and Southeast Asia. A staggering 72,000 are missing from World War II, a conflict in which sixteen million Americans served or about 12% of the population. Here is a little of what we cover: How his 23 years of military service, including his deployments to Iraq and the Far East as a fighter pilot, saved his own life and have influenced him to support the mission of finding and returning fallen service members home. Derek holds more combat hours than hours in peaceful skies, and also served with the Marine Raiders in Afghanistan. WWII American troop discovery stories and first-hand insights on the overall recovery experience How families can be impacted by loss for generations after a war has ended Examples of how Project Recover leverages technology and partnerships with University of Delaware and Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego in an attempt to find MIA soldiers How Derek’s values centered approach guides his professional and personal life Find resources for your service marriage at www.life-giver.org Interested in joining the Lifegiver Facebook group to discuss this episode and more?
