Chad Robichaux to Speak at Special Veterans Day Services
The Assembly 

Robichaux and Serving California work to reverse the staggering trends
of suicide and divorce with active military and veterans

chad_imageLos Angeles, CA – This Sunday, November 9th, The Assembly in Broken Arrow will host a very special Veterans Day Service, featuring Dr. Chad Robichaux, Medal of Valor recipient, ordained minister and former MMA World Champion. Services will be held at 9am and 10:45am.

At each service, Chad will be sharing his personal testimony of surviving PTSD, as well as giving a message of hope to those who suffer from this condition. He will also be giving an update on Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, who was recently released from a Mexican prison after a seven-month detention following a driving error. Chad and Serving California worked on the frontlines, supporting Tahmooressi and his family legally, emotionally and spiritually.  

A special offering will be taken at each service to support Mighty Oaks and Serving California.  

Chad served eight tours of duty as a US Special Operations Force Recon Marine and Medal of Valor recipient. After returning home, he and his family struggled for years, recovering from his own battle with PTSD. Since his recovery, Chad has earned his PhD and MBA from New York Tech and is a Board Certified Pastoral Counselor with a specialty in the treatment of PTSD.  A World Champion MMA Fighter and best-selling author, Chad now uses his influence to help give hope and healing to warriors and their families struggling with PTSD.   

Chad now serves as the Executive Director of Serving California’s Mighty Oaks Warrior Program, which operates on a standing commitment to aid those suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, with a specific calling to assist America’s active duty service members, veterans and their families.  The program reaches out to communities across the nation and communicates directly with the United States Armed Forces to ensure that our brave soldiers receive the opportunity to participate in their Fight Club, family camps, marriage retreats and vocational programs.  The Fight Club program has been in operation for three years and proudly states that not one of their Alumni has succumbed to the horrific national veteran suicide statistic of 23 per day.

Serving California is a foundation committed to the possibility that we can build a community of empathy for those who are struggling and provide them with needed resources to transcend their current situations.  Their programs place a special emphasis on ex-offenders, crime victims and veterans and their families.

The Assembly is located at 3500 West New Orleans, Broken Arrow, OK. Chad Robichaux will speak at both services on November 9. Services times are 9am and 10:45am.
