Retired Army Major Matina Jewell has paid a hefty price for a decorated 15-year Army career. While on one of her five overseas missions, posted to the Middle East, tensions rapidly escalated. Within days of war breaking out, all her close colleagues were dead from an airstrike and she was lying lifeless on a tiled floor desperately needing medical attention for a broken back. With painful physical injuries to contend with and mounting mental ones due to the heartbreaking losses, Mattie has managed to rebuild her life emotionally and physically to become one of the top female leadership speakers in the country. Her story is what happens when you lose everything you believe to be important - your career, your status, your physical capabilities and your dreams for the future - and you have to start over.
