FOCUS Pilot Study

Recon Mission

The purpose of this Recon Mission is to provide the Focus Marine Foundation real time intel regarding the benefits of the Veterans At Ease Reset Listening Protocols.

Veterans At Ease Reset Listening Protocols represents the coalition partnership between Advanced Brain Technologies and Pathways for Veterans that provide state-of-the-art customized listening programs to support veterans with Insomnia, Anxiety and Stress. Advanced Brain Technologies was founded by Alex Doman in 1998 and built on his family’s three generations of pioneering contributions to the field of human development. ABT is the leader in sound brain fitness and has helped countless numbers of people improve their lives simply by listening. With over 4,000 trained listeners and service providers worldwide they have become a game changer for our veterans and all those who serve them. ABT is a GSA contract holder, which means that these programs are covered for our Veterans at no cost through the VA.

That being said, consider what’s now happening with the combined efforts of Pathways for Veterans, founded by Gary Ferguson a highly decorated Vietnam era combat veteran (Tet 67-68) and his MOS was FO with the 1st air cav and who survived over 85 search and destroy recon missions. Think he might know something about soul sickness? Having spent nearly a half-century personally dealing with PTSD and TBI, as a result of prolonged combat, he spent the first 18 years after returning to civilian life heavily medicated and loaded. The VA did not even have a DSM definition of PTSD until 1986. Any wonder why he stayed lit? It wasn’t until Dec. 2, 1986 that a near-death experience changed his life. From that date forward he never looked back nor found it necessary to use medications, or use drugs and alcohol to feel ok. The Veterans At Ease Reset Listening Protocols are a step-by-step, structured environment, over a period of time to transition from the military mindset of serving to the civilian life of thriving. These protocols are a road map given to every veteran who wishes to apply in gratitude for being alive and thriving after returning from the sickness of the soul. If you feel you have the right stuff, contact Dan Dorr for your application to apply.

Thank you for your continued service,
