Dr. Jason Piccolo

Harrison Johnson joined The Protectors to talk about handling transition, the importance of finding a new mission post-service, and a ton of other topics.  Make sure to check out all that FitOps is doing to give back!  

About: Harrison is a recently separated, 10-year United States Army Infantryman. He is the Director of Operations for the FitOps Foundation and a mental health advocate for Veterans.
Over the last 2 years at FitOps, and during his time in service, Harrison discovered the reason for veterans’ struggle returning to civilian life is the lack of support through the transition process. He believes transition starts when you raise your right hand and are sworn into service, not when you decide to leave. Harrison believes that wearing the uniform creates a continuous struggle of identity between the Soldier version of one’s self and the civilian version. This conflict will continue through a veteran’s entire life and is the root cause of transition struggle. He witnessed and experienced firsthand the debilitating fear when a veteran realizes the skills, language and value they held and learned in service don’t translate to the real world. Harrison has now made it his mission through his work at FitOps Foundation, to help veterans find new purpose through a meaningful career in fitness, and provide them with the resources, tools and community to find success in business and in life.
