#53: Green Beret Leader “Chuy” Almonte Shares Lessons About Keeping His Family Strong and Close

I recently met SGM Jesus “Chuy” Almonte at a leadership conference in Fayetteville, NC. He was asked to sit on a panel of military leaders advising chaplains on how to more effectively care for Soldiers and Families. As I listened to Chuy, two things became immediately clear to me. First, this guy is serious about good leadership, and second, this guy loves his family. As a senior Green Beret, I was curious to know how he and his wife have navigated the challenges of raising a family of 5 children, with 1 on the way, while serving under the rigorous demands of leadership inside Special Forces. I asked Chuy if he’d be willing to sit down after the conference and share some of his thoughts about that journey. In this conversation, Chuy shares about how his faith plays a central role in equipping and empowering him and his wife as they raise their kids within the challenging context of military service. He also shares some of the leadership techniques he and his wife have learned along the way that help keep their family strong and close. I asked him to explain how he views success for his children, and how he is teaching his sons to become men. There’s a special bonus included in this conversation: the consummate military professional, Chuy sings a classic old school double time cadence for us. You’re going to love it.

#52: Special Operations Warrior Shares the Joys & Challenges of Fatherhood

Casey signed up to fight his nation’s wars the year after 9/11. After 17 years of service—12 of them in Special Operations—and after going on 42 different training trips and combat deployments literally all around the globe, he has gained some perspective on being a husband and father. He’s quick to declare up front how failure has played a big role in shaping his understanding of what it means to be a good father, and how much grace his wife and kids have extended to him throughout his frequent absences from home. But it is this grit and determination he and his wife share that has forged the relationships he has with his 4 children today, one of which he and his wife adopted five years ago. In this interview, Casey shares some of the most powerful lessons he has learned, and some of the most valuable insights he has gained, from staying engaged and remaining intentionally invested with his family, despite the challenges of being gone half their lives in service to our nation.

#51: The 4 Affirmations Your Son Needs to Hear [Interview with John Brantley from BAM Adventures]

In the journey toward becoming a man, every boy needs to hear that his father loves and affirms him. But sometimes it's not easy for fathers to know what to do or say to express that love and affirmation, especially if fathers didn't grow up receiving it themselves. John Brantley has a vision to equip fathers to do this effectively. He started BAM (or Becoming A Man) Adventures with the mission to provide a healthy and constructive framework for fathers, stepfathers, guardians, and mentors to confidently interact with their boys and provide the guidance and positive accountability needed to build strong healthy men who become leaders in their family, work, communities, and around the world. Using the "Do & Discuss Method", John and his team create memorable father/son retreats that teach fathers how to communicate four essential affirmations every boy needs to hear: 1) I know who you are, (2) I love who you are, (3) You have what it takes to make it in life, and (4) I'm with you every step of the way. You can learn more about John's vision and methodology at www.bamadventures.net.
