Welcome!

Hi! I'd like to welcome you to Arsenal of Hope.  When I came up with the idea for AoH, it was originally meant to be a creative outlet to help bridge the gap for veterans as they transition from service to civilian life.  However, that concept has shifted and evolved into something that I never could have imagined.  

Before I go any further, I should introduce myself...my name is Ben.  I am a father, husband, and a veteran.  My story takes a lot of twists and turns and as the blog and podcast continue to grow, I will discuss all of those roads that lead us to where we currently are. 

So odds are if you are here, you fall into one of two categories.  The first is that you know me or knew me at some point in my life and the second is you are looking for something...insight, motivation, inspiration, or maybe you found me randomly.  Whatever the reason that you are here and whether you realize it or not, we are on journey...now it's time for you to choose...we can go our separate ways or we can embark on this journey together.  Our destinations might be different, but our paths are probably more similar than you realize.  

In the next post, I will discuss my story and how I've gotten to where I am.  Moving beyond that, you can expect me to discuss a variety of topics, from health and wellness, nutrition, athletic performance, and product reviews.  

I also have a podcast available on ITunes, GooglePlay, Stitcher, Soundcloud, and PodBean.  Whichever podcast platform that you use, just search Arsenal of Hope.  Once you have found it, don't forget to hit the subscribe button!
