Foundations Recovery Network is proud to present two special events featuring military veterans. These speaking engagements will be held in conjunction with the Freedom & Recovery conference at the Hotel del Coronado. This conference will spotlight the need for treatment for service members suffering from trauma and addiction. Training is focused toward professionals and those who work directly with our military veterans and other service members such as first responders and law enforcement.

About J.R. Martinez

While many may know him from his recent participation on “Dancing With the Stars” or being named the 2012 Grand Marshal for the Tournament of Roses festivities, J.R. Martinez is also a retired U.S. Army Solider who was deployed to Iraq in 2003. While serving, he sustained burns over 40% of his body after his Humvee crossed a land mine. During his recovery, he spent time visiting and encouraging other patients. Martinez now travels the country sharing his life-changing story and message of resilience and optimism. He has devoted himself to showing others the true value in making the most of every situation. His experience was certainly life changing, but he claims it is a change for the better.

About Sergeant Dakota Meyer

This U.S. Marine veteran was recently awarded the Medal of Honor, the highest military decoration, by President Obama. He is the third living recipient of the Medal of Honor since the Vietnam War, and the first living United States Marine in 38 years to be so honored. Sergeant Meyer served in both Iraq and Afghanistan, but his most notable efforts occurred in September 2009. During the attack near Ganjgal, with disregard for his own life, Sgt. Meyer helped to evacuate both trapped and wounded soldiers. He insists that he is not a hero and any Marine would do the same thing. Back home, this highly decorated service member has issued a “Challenge to America” to raise an additional $1 million for the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation.
