Broken Yeoman

Broken Yeoman

My name is Jenilee. I was born and raised in the Western Massachusetts area. As an industrial truck driver, I worked hard and partied harder. In the wake of the economic crisis of 2008, I lost my union job at the factory that ultimately led to my enlistment in the US Navy. As an Undesignated Seaman, I continued the dirty work alongside the destructive heavy drinking. In 2013, I self-referred into the Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Program (SARP) for my acute alcohol abuse. My sobriety date is 5/5/2013. My personal experience in the Navy fueled a fire full of advocacy, servant leadership, and support. As a Yeoman First Class, I medically retired in June of 2020 after years of faithful and honorable service. I maintain a tight network of mentors and veterans, remain in active recovery, and continue a life of representation to demolish negative stigmas surrounding addiction and mental health conditions. I am not ashamed of my journey; it is my life's purpose to remain loud about my recovery, experiences, and lessons learned in hopes of reaching someone who is struggling. In 2021, I started down my cosmetology path. I turned-in my quills for shears. Having served, it is near impossible for me to completely transition back to a civilian. It is in this limbo that I have chosen a life of service to other veterans and active duty women. We all share a common thread and I have created a safe space for us to strengthen our sisterly bond. The scrunchies are a way for all of us to connect. An avenue for you to click a link, read my story, and start a conversation. It is also a way for me to give back to the organization that comforted me in the most stressful of times, the USO. From the layover to my first duty station in Norfolk to my long journey during my medical evacuation in both Oman and Germany, the selfless volunteers at the USO created a place of safety for all of us; a home away from home. Fifteen percent (15%) of all Broken Yeoman scrunchie proceeds are donated to the USO quarterly.

Grind Toothpaste

Grind Toothpaste

Grind Activated Charcoal WHITENING Toothpaste with HYDROXYAPATITE, THEOBROMINE & Coconut Oil. Natural Teeth Whitener w/ REMINERALIZATION, Fluoride Free, Veteran Owned, Made in Utah (Mint Elevated) (4oz)

THE “ALL-IN TOOTHPASTE”:  Naturally whitens, strengthens enamel, combats cavities, freshens breath, soothes & moisturizes and polishes & cleans; with a taste that’s dialed in!  Plus anti-bacteria, anti-plaque, anti-microbal and anti-inflammatory antioxidants.
WHITEN WITHOUT WORRY:  We created the perfect paste – activated charcoal combined with 3 other natural yet powerful whitening ingredients + HYDROXYAPATITE & THEOBROMINE to strengthen enamel. This unique combination allows us to mindfully employ activated charcoal the way it’s intended – to whiten without worry.
INFUSED WITH HYDROXYAPATITE:  Backed by science; and considered to be safe (non-toxic) and effective for strengthening enamel. A natural mineral & the main component of our teeth, encompassing 97% of the enamel. In 1970 NASA created a synthetic form of hydroxyapatite to restore astronauts teeth following missions in space; and it’s been used in Japan to combat cavities for over 40 years. However, we use the real stuff – no synthetics here.
STRENGTH THROUGH CHOCOLATE:  That’s right, a natural chocolate (cacao bean) extract to assist with remineralization and potentially assist with hypersensitivity. Does it get better than this?  Yes… we added high-demand ingredients such as Coconut Oil, Aloe Vera, Xylitol, Ginseng, Black Tea, Green Tea, Tea Tree Oil and Mint.
MORE THAN A PASTE:  A paste with a purpose… Proudly Made in the USA, Veteran-Owned and Purpose Driven.  Our mission is to source the finest ingredients and employ the best toothpaste in the world, while helping veterans on the back-end. Brush your teeth and support our men and women in service. The first product you’ll grab each morning and last one you’ll use each night. A subtle reminder to get after it; grind; and never quit.

Our “NO WEAK SAUCE” guarantee: SLS Free, SLES Free, DEA Free, BPA Free, Fluoride Free, Gluten Free and Cruelty Free; Free from: Dyes, Peroxide, Triclosan, Parabens, Artificial Flavors or Artificial Sweeteners. Vegan Friendly. PETA Approved.

Grind. Rinse. Repeat.

T3 Body Encinitas

T3 Body Encinitas

* Please excuse the quick intermission in this episode:)"

As a proud Marine veteran, Rick Noda has always been a passionate and motivated individual and as such, has had a passion for passing along that motivation in order to inspire others to be the best versions of themselves – especially when it comes to their fitness goals. During his Marine experience, he learned that the most efficient way to overcome the dreaded length of the learning curve is to find the expert and learn from the ground up. Rick believes that the discipline it takes to set and accomplish fitness goals overflows into your personal life and impacts the confidence you can build by being able to hold yourself accountable while also being grounded enough to give yourself tangible and achievable measures of success.  A full-time endurance coach and participant for the past 10 years, Rick has found joy in seeing his clients set their first PR or stand on the podium for the first time. He’s competed and coached for Ironman’s, half/full marathons, as well as short and long course triathlons. He enjoys motivating his clients through physical training with not only his own personal experience but experience from leaders in the industry. The T3 Body Training program was created from a science-based approach that utilizes USAT and TRX training, cardiovascular system improvement, stretching and muscle strengthening, and nutritional guidance. Even if you have had an injury or are recovering from a recent surgery, T3 Body is equally as effective for your goals.

Middle Tennessee Fab and Performance

Middle Tennessee Fab and Performance

Owner, Rusty Smith served in the US Army for 7 years and was medically retired after sustaining injuries in Airborne School, SFAS, Operation New Dawn, Iraq, and Korea.  After retirement, I started a lawn care business to fund our racing habit with my wife, Courtney, and my Skyline dream build. I then partnered with a performance shop in town due to my education not only as an all wheel mechanic in the army, but as a mechatronics engineer and numerous other certifications in mechanical related applications. The business was left to my wife and I and we have dedicated our business to being a sanctuary for veterans through racing and other channels. At our shop we offer over 1 million performance parts and work on anything from diesel and off-road to muscle and import.  We have had an idea in our heads for a few years and didn't come to fruition until summer of 2019, when we realized that veterans need a place to go where they can work with their hands to help them through their depression and PTSD. So, through our shop we provide a program called Operation Dysfunctionally Built where one weekend a month we allow veterans to come to our shop and wrench on a performance motor that is designated for them to simply wrench on as well as we provide ride alongs at racing events. Our goal is to provide an opportunity for veterans to use mechanics and racing therapeutically to get the out of their house and in a like minded environment allowing them to work through any depression or PTSD.
