In the Fall of 2018 Mac consolidated what he’d learned in three plus years of interviewing Marines about their post-combat lives into a presentation entitled “Post-Traumatic Winning” which was presented for the first time in January of 2019 to the 2nd Marine Division at Camp Lejeune, NC. Since then, Mac has traveled the nation presenting Post-Traumatic Winning to any audience who is interested in post-traumatic life and the life changing truths that are resident in the presentation
