Lt. Col. Jason G. Pike, USA, Retired
A decorated combat veteran with multiple deployments, Lt. Col. Jason G. Pike, USA, Retired, served 31 years in the United States Army as both an enlisted and officer, including nine years overseas in five countries. Jason earned over 30 service awards & badges and survived a wicked amount of military training.
His first book, A Soldier Against All Odds, compiles all his life events in an inspiring storytelling format with the ups and downs of a life in uniform. His diversity of Army jobs, assignments, and schools from age 17 to 48 sets this military memoir up differently than most.
Jason’s brutal honesty on how he did it while disclosing many sacred secrets about how he survived is unique. With a straightforward account of one man’s journey, he inspires audiences nationwide at speaking events and shows how to be resilient and to persevere no matter what disadvantages and life struggles may happen.
After having walked through the VA benefits bureaucracy and endless paperwork, Pike has made it his business to master getting the benefits he earned, and he now has a much-needed blueprint to help other veterans do the same. His second book, Out of the Uniform, Back into Civilian Life, is an invaluable resource for veterans seeking clear, actionable guidance to navigate the often complex landscape of VA benefits and assistance programs.

green pastures; He leads
me besides still waters."
