"Chad is the epitome of a warrior. The story of Chad’s struggle is one that brings hope to everyone who has been down the same path as Chad after returning to life after combat. Chad found the answer to PTSD and today he and his wife have committed their lives to assisting others along the path to recovery and victory through their program called Mighty Oaks. I have spent time with Mighty Oaks and I can attest to the success of it. It is powerful and has a record of success. You see, Chad struggled mightily until he submitted his future to God. In fact he submitted every aspect of his life to the Lord and he found victory. Getting to that point was not easy but he finally became the man God wanted him to be and now he helps others to overcome their struggles as a result of combat. I find his story to be compelling and incredible and I know that many will be touched and helped by it. Lets get this story out to those who need to hear it, those who suffer the same challenges that Chad did."
Our American warriors are the best the world has ever known; their commitment to being the Guardians of our Republic is exceptional. However, there are times when these men and women are in need of support. An Unfair Advantage is the personal story of one Warrior, U.S. Marine Corps Special Operator and Force Reconnaissance member, Chad Robichaux. Chad is the pure embodiment of a modern-day Spartan, and he has the résumé to prove it, from the battlefields of Afghanistan to the ring of combat as a Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) champion. However, the outward Warrior hid an inner pain, a hurt that could not be filled with the prescriptions of the secular world. Chad tried worldly means to heal himself from Post Traumatic Stress, and failed. This walking man of steel was being weakened by the kryptonite that almost ended his marriage, and his life. Then Chad found the real antidote, the power of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ with whom we can do all things. Chad’s victory led him to establish the Mighty Oaks Warrior Foundation that heals Warriors with the blessings of allowing Jesus Christ into their lives, and they have not lost a Warrior. An Unfair Advantage is a must-read to give evidence of the real battle, the unseen enemy our troops face. Yet, regardless, it gives witness that the full armor of God is the best means by which our Warriors can win on the spiritual battlefield. It is not about another policy, just trusting in a Savior who has overcome it all (John 16:33).
An Unfair Advantage is a must read. I served as a United States Marine for 36 years. It was truly an honor to serve with Warriors like Chad Robichaux. Chad’s personal experience with Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) after returning from combat is something that many Warriors who’ve seen the “horrors of combat” can relate to. Chad’s personal story will touch many Warriors experiencing PTS and their families. It is my sincere hope that Chad’s story of the power of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who led him to victory, will touch other great Warriors and their families going through the “horrors of combat” and lead them to victory on the spiritual battlefield. Chad’s book is an example of Joshua 1:9. “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” This book will be a blessing to others!
God is the Creator. He made warriors. He made men. He made them with a purpose. If you don’t find that purpose you’ll be as unfulfilled, as if you’re trying to use a screwdriver for a shovel or a hammer for a mop. An Unfair Advantage helps men and warriors find the very purpose for which they were created.
Every boy dreams of being a hero. When boys become men, success is what they pursue, while deep down still dreaming of being a hero of noble character. Success often comes at the expense of those things that matter most. Chad's story is not everyman's story, but it is a story for every man — a story of success, failure, and most importantly, redemption.
Operating from the depths of darkness in enemy territory, a Recon Marine maneuvers through life’s minefields. Ambushes from multiple directions come against him, as he has become a high-value target in the enemy’s scope. During this all-out assault, the Commander of the Universe, who holds all power and might in the palm of His hand, launches a quick reaction force to save one soul. From that moment on, Chad Robichaux becomes one of God’s elite Spartans and dedicates his life and soul in the war against spiritual tyranny. Today, Chad and his Spartan wife Kathy have become an unstoppable force for good as they serve, helping to liberate the oppressed with the Message of Freedom. An Unfair Advantage is an intense spiritual fight, good against evil. It’s a riveting message that gives anyone who is broken or hurting a sense of hope. It’s a must-read!
Warriors more than anyone need to understand the spiritual implications of their chosen trade. God has cherished those He has sent into battle from the beginning, and Chad explains how Jesus is the greatest warrior of them all. Take these lessons in spiritual resilience from a true warrior and apply them to your life.
Chad Robichaux puts the mindset of a true martial artist in his approach to life’s many challenges with great success. It is an honor to know his stories of battle in war, competition, and life. And a pleasure to have him as a friend.
It is incredibly rare to find a book that challenges the human soul with real-life stories that will make your heart race, and break, on almost every page. This is one of those books! A must read, and perfect gift, for anyone who is struggling with the big questions of life, and who is tired of hearing the same old clichés to try to explain them away.
An Unfair Advantage is truly transformational and is a must-read for every man. Chad has a way of weaving his own story of success and failure together, in such a captivating way, that you will have a hard time putting this book down. Every competitor I know is always looking for the “advantage,” and Chad adds a twist to it in a way that you will never forget. We all talk about the X factor, but few can objectively tell us what it actually is. Chad not only tells us what it is and how to get it, but he illustrates it from one of the most fascinating life stories you will ever read. What makes Chad so unique is his brutal honestly and humility: he never pulls a punch! It is refreshing to meet a “man’s man” who is so secure in his masculinity that he doesn’t try to hide or excuse anything. As a pastor and father, I wholeheartedly recommend this book to you!
