“Tough times don’t last, tough people do,” is the mantra that Joel Hunt lives by. As an Army veteran, who was injured during his third deployment, Hunt has seen his fair share of tough times. Though he has endured tragedy, he has come out on the other side with a dedication to helping fellow veterans.
Hunt was born and raised in Kokomo, Indiana, by David and Judy Hunt. He joined the Army after graduating from Northwestern High School. On June 17, 1998, he was shipped off to basic training and became a combat engineer. He was deployed three times during his Army career, with his third deployment ending in Baqubah, Iraq after suffering a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and partial leg paralyzation.
Following his retirement, Hunt started The H-Train Show, a podcast that airs on Military Brotherhood Radio. The podcast is completed solely through volunteer work, and offers information and resources for veterans. More importantly, it gives fellow veterans a voice and a community to turn to. The H-Train Show discusses veterans’ affairs, current events and features interviews with high-profile guests. Joel has been featured in numerous TV news segments, radio and in magazines across the country, from USA Today to The Hollywood Reporter and The American Genius.
