Capt McNab was a 68W with combat deployments as an Army Medic. His life turned to being a mental health professional. He is now a Social Worker at Moody for the 38th RQS. We first saw Capt McNab at the MOAB and he gave a great brief.
In the first of several discussions with Capt McNab, he talks about the importance of communication for everything from mission readiness to getting along with your teammates, how to improve your comm skills, and how to overcome obstacles when personalities clash.
