Join our conversation as we share Morgan Bartley’s life journey through the pain of abuse and addiction into peace and sobriety. Morgan served in the Army as a Combat Support Military Police from 2005 to 2011 in Italy and Peru along with a combat deployment to Iraq. He just graduated with an associate degree in Criminal Justice from Northeast State and will attend ETSU in the fall to complete a bachelor’s degree focused on Probation and Parole. He also hosts a recovery group called the Granola Gang focused on supporting and advocating for those in recovery through recreational therapy and activities.
