We support our military in dealing with PTSD and other issues they face after combat, and upon re-entry to civilian life.


We want every soldier to come back from overseas in one piece, physically, mentally and emotionally. Our mission is to preserve and support the health of our troops so they can be thriving members of their families, communities and society in whole.


Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is considered to be an anxiety reaction to trauma of any kind. Simply put, PTSD is a set of problems that can occur after someone has experienced a terrible or stressful event. The symptoms of PTSD are many and are considered normal after experiencing a traumatic event; it’s been called “a normal reaction to abnormal events.” The victims of PTSD are many: the war-wounded, military veterans, people who have been assaulted, abused or injured, and those who have lived through a catastrophic event or a natural or personal disasters.

In dealing with PTSD there are no easy answers. Trauma touches us deeply. “It gets to the essence of being alive, in which things can go remarkably wrong, without reason for fairness,” as stated by the Seeking Safety model developed by Lisa M. Najavits. Our physical, emotional and psychological well-being pay the consequences for our PTSD experience, and many can feel a deep and relentless desperation to this disease.

The good news is that it is possible to heal from PTSD. We Got Your Six is focused on healing and safety for military persons and their families. Our programs are designed to help our clients develop trust and feel a sense of safety within their reality defined as a PTSD Sufferer.

Patrick Sweeney


Patrick has one mission – to help millions of people Find the Adventurer Within. He’s the first person to attempt Cycling the Seven Summits and he’s already set a world record by being the first person to officially cycle to Everest Base Camp.

Patrick is more than a full-time adventurer, however. He was 2nd in the Olympic trials in rowing and then went back to a top 5-business school where he discovered a knack for recognizing entrepreneurial opportunities. He started three international technology companies, wrote two books, was awarded seven patents and sold his companies for millions. After a rare form of leukemia nearly brought his world to an end he decided the void in his life was inspiration and adventure – he left technology behind to become a full-time adventurer and inspire others.

Patrick’s last summit, Kilimanjaro (#BikeKili), reached more than 10 million views from coverage in Outside Television and Outside Magazine, Red Bull Media, Bicycling Magazine, Inc magazine and others. With his unique background he understands how to drive a return on investment for sponsors while at the same time inspiring others no matter where they live, what they do or how old they are.
