GRP 139-What we think we become: The Andrew Coussens Story

Read more
Joining me for this week's podcast is Andrew Coussens. Andrew is an author and has written two books. His first is "A failed State," and his second is "Relapse." Andrew served in the U.S. government security services for 21 years. He began his career working with U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, where he worked his way up to an Aerial Interdiction Unit Leader. He later spent time working with the agency's BORSTAR unit, conducting search and rescue operations all along the border. The 2002 winter Olympics was the first major event held inside the U.S. post 9/11. Andrew worked security with the Department of Interiors National Helicopter Rescue units.

A few later, he would be recruited to work security and counterterrorism for OGA (Other Government Agency), where he would deploy 21 times, including spending years in hostile environments where he and a small team were the only Americans in country. Upon leaving government service, Andrew worked as a consultant for The Activity Group. A company started by former Delta Force medic's, which provided medical training and equipment for various organizations. He's also deployed with my good friends over at the Global Surgical Medical Support Group, who send teams of doctors, surgeons, and military medics to Iraq to support communities affected by ISIS. We discussed Andrew's career, his novels, the untimely passing of his wife, and much more. Enjoy.

Losing A Spouse to Suicide: Grief, Military Families, and Single Parenting with Andrew Coussens

Read more

Andrew Coussens was getting ready for his 22nd deployment when he found out his wife had taken her life.  Instantly, he became a single dad to his three young kids and had to figure out his “new normal” as he coped with grief, an entirely new day-to-day life, and parenting solo.  I had him on my podcast to talk about his new book “A Failed State” which is a fiction book that parallels his own experience with the military, the dynamic of deployment and how that impacts families, and more.  

We dug deep into how to handle grief when you lose a loved one, what it’s like for military spouses, and single parenting. I had a blast on this podcast and I really think anyone who listens will relate to some or many parts of what we talked about.  

Can’t wait for you to listen to it, it truly was a joy to have Andrew as a guest!
