Talk to a Veteran

Pay it
Forward

25 value - Virtual OK - Posted Feb 09, 2017

Whether you are a healthy veteran, one struggling with PTSD, reintegration, or just a friend or family member with questions, you may need someone to talk to about military life and the challenges that service members and their families face.

I spent six years in the military as part of the Ohio Army National Guard. I did multiple extended training stints, as well as a tour in Iraq in 2010. I understand how difficult coming home can be for some, and faced some issues myself that I learned to deal with.

Today I am as happy and healthy as I have ever been. I would love to be able to help even just one person who may be struggling with attachment, reintegration or PTSD issues. I am not a trained therapist or psychiatrist, so my aid should not take the place of talking to a professional. I am not an emergency responder, so if you need immediate help, please contact the Veteran’s Crisis Line toll free 24/7.

Training & Qualifications


I served in the military and did a tour overseas in a heavy combat area. I also have had family and friends serve and do multiple deployments. I have been through many counseling sessions for my own PTSD and went through a program called Save a Warrior which introduced me to some amazing ideas and a community of veterans who are all working together to find their inner peace.

I understand the challenges that military members and their families face, and can offer simple help and suggestions, or just listen.

Availability & Preferences


Any time for non-immediate chatting.

Trading Preference: Pay it forward – pass on the good deed!

Phil was very helpful and gave me the insights that I need. Phil also has better use of description and articulation than most people I come across du...ring the course of my business and my social forays. It's refreshing to speak with someone who can use more than five or six words to express themselves. I recommend working with this man. He is prompt, courteous, and thoughtful.show more

About Phil Wischmeyer

Hi, my name is Phil Wischmeyer and was born and raised on a farm in rural Ohio. After high school I joined the military and did six years in the Ohio Army National Guard including a tour overseas in I...raq. After completing an associates in Computer Aided Drafting and Design, I began working as a mechanical drafter and stayed in that field for about four years before pursuing local entrepreneurship. I’ve co-owned and operated a collection agency and an artisan bread bakery, as well as worked as a partner and sports writer for the hockey website Along the Boards. Today I live near Indian Lake, OH with my wife and three young children who we are currently homeschooling. We reside on an 11-acre property where we grow many different foods for our family. I am extremely passionate about regenerative agriculture, and self-sufficiency. This passion has led me to start my own edible landscape design business and also serve on the board of a local nonprofit that works to increase the production and access to locally-grown foods. In my spare time I enjoy being outside, being with my family, reading, listening to/playing music and watching television.. If any of my services offered interest you, please don't hesitate to message me. I love helping others as much as I am able. I am usually quick to reply, but I am often busy so if I don’t get right back to you please don’t be discouraged. I will always follow up and reply. I hope to trade with you soon!show more
