Gabriel Nutter joined the Army in 2004 as a 19D Cavalry Scout. He served with the 1st Squadron 10th US Cavalry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, at Fort Hood Texas and Fort Carson Colorado. He deployed to Operation Iraqi Freedom from November of 2005 to November 2006. While in Iraq he participated in over 250 “pre surge” combat missions and operations throughout the Southern Baghdad Region. Gabriel was medically discharged from the Army in 2008 and has been working with the Massachusetts Dept of Veterans’ Services since 2011, and he is a Team Leader for the Department’s SAVE Team (Statewide Advocacy for Veterans’ Empowerment) for Western Massachusetts. Gabriel provides Veteran, military culture, and crisis intervention trainings to State and Municipal law enforcement, court, and first responder agencies across the Commonwealth, as well as many local colleges and universities for their nursing and mental health programs.
Battlemind Training provides Veterans, Family Members, Clinicians, and First Responders the tools to identify a Veteran in crisis and to get them to appropriate help or treatment. The significance of Battlemind in the Medical Command’s context is that “Battlemind skills helped you survive in combat, but may cause you problems if not adapted when you get home.” Battlemind is the Soldier’s inner strength to face fear and adversity with courage.
Key components include:
- Self-confidence: taking calculated risks and handling challenges.
- Mental toughness: overcoming obstacles or setbacks and maintaining positive thoughts
during times of adversity and challenge.”
