150 – USAF Veteran Conor Sullivan

Conor and FatherI had met Conor Sullivan during the Livecast at Jonathan Gosselin’s place of business, Veteran Owned Veteran Operated in December 2018. Sitting there talking live with everyone was going great when I was told to talk to this guy with a big smile. 

Conor introduced himself as an Air Force Veteran, but the big surprise was was when he told me he had a heart transplant!

The story really went into overdrive when we started talking about training for the Boston Marathon. As a way to give back and celebrate life, Conor wanted to run the Boston Marathon with his new heart.

I started watching Conor prepare for the Marathon and couldn’t believe it when he posted an awesome time. This Air Force Veteran is a Savage!

Conor and I ran into each other at Scott Lobaido’s sculpture for PTSD in Weymouth, MA. It was just a week after the Marathon and I asked him if he would come on Oscar Mike Radio.

We met at parking lot in Braintree, MA. Conor is a member of the Veterans Brotherhood Motorcycle Club. He rode up on his Harley – Davidson and we started talking.

Listening to his story, I noticed that there never a time where he felt sorry for himself. He talked about how he went into the Air Force to work on C-130s. His health started to deteriorate at his duty station and he found out he would need a heart transplant. I learned a lot about the process.

To me it is what Conor has done after the heart transplant that makes this story special. He is a husband and father. He has run the Boston Marathon, and is training for the Marine Corps Marathon. As a member of the Veterans Brotherhood Motorcycle Club, he has found his tribe and a way to serve his fellow Veterans.

Thanks for taking the time to talk with me Conor. Rubber down
