Doc Todd and Combat Medicine
Doc Todd is combat veteran who proudly served our country as a Fleet Marine Force Corpsman (combat medic) in the United States Navy. Since Doc’s honorable discharge in 2009, it’s been seven years of life and civilian transition for him, including the ups and downs experienced by many young veterans who have dealt with the hard costs of war.
Now, Doc has had enough… enough with the pain, enough with not fitting in, enough with the sorrow and anger of having another friend take his life. So in 2017, Doc took a leap of faith leaving a budding career in financial management to pursue a mission focused on impacting veterans’ lives through music, just as he did eight years ago under the blazing Afghanistan sun, In June, Doc will debut his forthcoming hip-hop album, Combat Medicine – a follow-up to the album he released in 2009 about his emotions leading up to deployment. Combat Medicine is exactly what it sounds like – a no-holds- bar look into military life and veteran transition. His mission is simple – show veterans they’re not alone and save lives. His memoir, also titled Combat Medicine, is set to launch later this year.
