Robert has a love for God’s Word and wants to use it through the counseling vain to help America’s Veterans and First Responders. It is this passion and desire that led Robert to connect with and join Fallen Soldiers March Advisory Board. Robert wants Veterans and First Responders to receive true Biblical help, the kind of help that lasts and changes people’s lives, rather than the help of the world that can be fleeting in any given moment. Fallen Soldiers March has served The Mighty Oaks Foundation with Biblical Counseling to the men and women who have graduated the Men’s/Women’s Legacy Programs. The wise and Biblical counsel given by the many volunteer certified counselors has had a tremendous effect on the lives of the Mighty Oaks Alumni and their families. Outside of salvation and a relationship with Christ, through the work of the Holy Spirit and the hearing of God’s Word, it is only through Biblical Counseling that legacies can truly be changed, and lives transformed.

Robert served in the United States Marine Corps for 20 years, retiring in April of 2017. While in the USMC Robert was a Combat Engineer, and was stationed aboard Camp Pendleton, Camp Lejeune, and Okinawa.

Robert served tours in Iraq and Afghanistan in the support of the War on Terror. During multiple combat deployments Robert served as squad leader, platoon guide, platoon sergeant, convoy commander, and operations chief. During his 2013 deployment to Afghanistan, Robert was involved in an improvised explosive device (IED) strike.

As a result of the IED strike Robert was combat wounded and awarded the Purple Heart. Upon returning from combat Robert was assigned to the Wounded Warrior Battalion West (WWBN-W) to receive treatment for both physical and mental injuries.

While at WWBN-W, Robert began the healing process, and went through a number of therapies, and programs for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), PTSD, and other physical injuries sustained during combat. In September of 2015 Robert attended the Mighty Oaks Warrior Men’s Legacy Program. It was there that Robert was called out of darkness and into the light by Christ and his heart was changed from a heart of stone to a heart of flesh. Entering into a relationship with Christ has helped Robert overcome the sin of being a drunkard, repaired the broken relationships with his four children, and most importantly given him the hope in Christ to put to death the thoughts of suicide that plagued Robert every day. Since completing the program Robert has gained much ground in the fight for his life, and that of his families. Currently, Robert focuses on sharing his story of victory through Christ, and assisting other veterans in dealing with, and healing from similar injuries. Through sharing his story, he hopes to spread a message of hope, healing, and restoration.

Robert Cale serves as the Aftercare Manager for the Mighty Oaks Foundation. As part of the Mighty Oaks Team, Robert is dedicated to helping America’s military warriors and their families from the "unseen wounds" of combat such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). As a part of Mighty Oaks Foundation, Robert assists in the goal to intercede, and end the climbing 23 per day veteran suicide rate and the current and tragic 85% divorce rate, among military families. Robert began volunteering for Mighty Oaks Foundation in February of 2016 and at Allied Experts Heating & Air Conditioning and completed the Team Leader training process September 14, 2016. Since that time, Robert has served in the capacity of Team Leader, Team Leader Trainer, Mentor, Outpost Leader, Military Liaison to Camp Pendleton, and now as Aftercare Manager. During his time with Mighty Oaks, he has been mentoring and guiding fellow veterans through a weeklong process, the Men’s Legacy Program, of learning critical life skills to assist in the healing of trauma suffered by many veterans due to wartime military service.

In 2018 Robert began pursuing his ACBC Certification and attending The Master’s University for a bachelor’s degree in Biblical Counseling. Upon completion of his undergrad, Robert will pursue a master’s degree in Biblical Counseling from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Robert has been married to his lovely bride Emily since April 28, 2017 and has four children. Currently Robert lives in Mississippi where he is serving as a Biblical Counselor for his home church.
