When Juanita Ramsey met her future husband in 1986, the Vietnam War was to her long over. She soon learned that to marry a soldier was to marry his war. Bill Jevne served as a Marine Corps platoon commander in Vietnam. The memories were burned in his mind. The poison of Agent Orange had colonized his cells.
When his prostate cancer became terminal, he used the Death with Dignity option. "Our first date began with a story of these young men getting killed. And our last hours ended with him, still a platoon commander, calling his remaining members and telling them: 'I'm going to be dying in about an hour, and I want to say goodbye to you.'"
Juanita Ramsey-Jevne now gives workshops on end-of-life options, embracing death to enhance life, grieving, and writing.

Steve Exceen is a Marine Corps veteran, father, and founder of Ride for 22, a nonprofit organization that seeks to 1.) raise awareness about veteran suicide, 2.) serve as a living memorial for our fallen heroes, and 3.) increase public knowledge and awareness of Post Traumatic Stress. Steve discusses the journey that led him to start Ride for 22. His organization started with three people and grew to include thousands of riders in Idaho and Oregon, riders who display a picture of someone’s loved one during the 3 hour ride so families know they are not forgotten. We have a special guest on the show today. Steve’s nine year old daughter joins us at the end and says hello.

July 16, 2015 a gunman killed five servicemen at a Navy and Marine Corps reserve unit in Chattanooga Tennessee. I was a mile away at work and witnessed the city go on lockdown as 'active shooter situation' and 'no-fly zone' announcements appeared on the news. Although I didn't know those men, their lives and that incident impacted me in ways I couldn't have imagined. One year later, July 16, 2016 I met a Marine veteran of the Iraq war and our conversations and interactions over the next couple years would change the way I think. This episode is in honor of the men who lost their lives that virulent day, and it's also in honor of new friendships.
