Bio of John Guandolo
John Guandolo, with Operation Restored Warrior (ORW), hit a personal wall of his own in 2006 after serving his country at senior levels of the FBI and as a Marine.
His experience has guided him as he seeks to help soldiers like himself.
ORW “collected a group of warriors to serve and heal other warriors,” Guandolo explained in this interview with The Daily Caller.
A non-profit that owns a ranch in Colorado, ORW aims to support veterans suffering from PTSD and suicidal tendencies. The program is a five-day retreat that helps them gain a new perspective and new beginning.
In 2009, the program helped Guandolo himself, who graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1989. In this interview, Guandolo spoke of specific examples of men moving through the program, including one wounded warrior who “hadn’t laughed or smiled in two-and-a-half years.
