08:04 - "Being in the military exposes you to a multitude of different worlds. And it unplugs you from the system you're in. It helps cultivate this environment of thinking outside the box." - David Reid

14:10 - "The problem that a lot of people face is that they're just in this community of being and feeling safe, so they never push themselves or challenge themselves. And that's what the military drives to. The military instills that resilience in you and that ability to push forward." - David Reid

15:30 - "Every major medical advancement of the last hundred years has been explicitly due to war. So every medical advancement, with plastic surgery, traumatic brain injuries, PTSD, and everything starting from World War I until the present day, was directly because of conflict." - Christian Meyers

16:27 - "Conflict creates the opportunity for breakthroughs." - Stephen Colon

17:40 - "Everybody faces their own battles. It doesn't matter if you're hit in war or you're crossing a street, and you see your best friend get hit. Post-traumatic stress is the same response physiologically across the board." - David Reid
