Welcome to DNAMilitary.org!

We have designed this website to be a virtual ammo dump of hard-hitting training on leadership, resiliency, and other practical support topics for your benefit. The video content on our website is divided into two different perspectives: Command Base Quarters (CBQ) and Faith Based Quarters (FBQ).


Our mission at DNA Military is to equip you on a host of topics and potential areas of struggle that are vital to leading a life of resiliency as warriors and as civilians. To this end, we offer videos and other training materials to equip you along with the opportunity to have someone walk alongside you. Having been an infantry machine gunner who fought in Viet Nam, I know many of the challenges that you face as you serve in the United States military. I also know that our years of military service are only the beginning of the battles that many of us will face.


In my case, as tough as war was, the challenges only continued when I came home. Returning from Viet Nam made me realized that I had been far better trained and prepared to be a machine gunner than to be a husband, a father, or a colleague to a bunch of civilians.


After Viet Nam, I found success as a trial lawyer and senior partner of a large law firm in Atlanta. But despite these outwards marks of success, I continued to battle with the ghosts of fears, pressures and regrets that I still carried with me from my combat experiences. I was haunted by fear, anger guilt and pain, and by endless questions that I could not answer:


  • -Why did so many better men than me have to die?
  • -How am I supposed to deal with the pressure and the guilt I feel?
  • -How do I lead in the civilian world with the same core values I learned in the military?
  • -What can I do to overcome my anxieties and frustrations?
  • -How do I respond to the feeling of being “ambushed” in the civilian world when all my instincts are screaming at me to “Attack!”
  • -How do I deal with the nightmares and the flashbacks?
  • -How do I respond to my beautiful wife saying to me in tears, “I’m not the enemy!”

Some days, everyone was the enemy, and my coping mechanisms never seemed to work. Sitting with my back to the wall of the restaurant didn’t bring answers to the fear. Punching holes in the wall didn’t decrease my anger. And meanwhile, I wanted so much to truly lead and care for my friends and my family. I wanted to be someone who was healthy, someone who was a safe place, someone they could count on.


But even though I had left the killing and the dying of war behind, I felt like I awoke every day in the midst of a battle that was still raging all around me. My sense of isolation and anger increased to the point that my life was on the brink of falling apart. My marriage was on the rocks and I was getting desperate.


It was then that my life began to turn around. I discovered some principles of leadership, character, and recovery that brought a new level of stability and peace of mind to my life. These are principles that have changed me - principles that I have seen change thousand and thousands of others.


My hope is to be a source of encouragement, support, and practical training for you on the top challenges that we face every day as men and women seeking to live out the core values to which we aspire. As a husband and father, it has taken me years to learn how to build strong relationships with those I love. I am eager to pass on to you anything I have learned along the way in the hope that it will be helpful to you.


Staying in the battle...together,

Phil's Signature
