Program overview

The Military Family Research Institute, in partnership with the Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center, Indiana National Guard and the Department of Veterans Affairs is pleased to present the Battlemind to Home Summit, on Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2018. The event will be held at the Indianapolis Marriott East, located at 7202 E. 21st Street, Indianapolis, Indiana.

The Battlemind to Home Summit brings together a variety of experts each year to inform and educate Indiana professionals on the critical issues facing military-connected families in Indiana’s communities. Our goal for this conference is to help reduce reintegration barriers for veterans, service members and military families. We work to educate attendees on the challenges military-connected families face, and also the opportunities and strengths they bring to our communities. This year the program will also focus on how veterans can be an essential part of their community.

Three tracks

MFRI uses a collaborative approach to plan and execute this event. With nationally recognized experts in all fields, Battlemind presents evidence-informed sessions that address many sensitive and cutting-edge topics. Past summit sessions have covered issues such as suicide, moral injury and community mobilization.

This year’s featured content will address:

  • issues regarding legal needs and support;
  • how to address physical and mental health concerns; and
  • the tools needed to create a sense of community within civilian life for military personnel.

If there are specific topics you would like to see covered or speakers you would like to hear from within these tracks, please reach out to Christy Collette,

Keynote speaker

Greg StubeSgt. 1st Class Gregory Stube (Ret.), USA followed the family tradition of pursuing a career in the military. In 1988 he enlisted in the U.S. Army Infantry, four years later he was selected for the Green Berets. He was trained as a Special Forces Medical Sergeant, 18D, where he was proficient in surgery, anesthesia, trauma management, pharmacology, minor dentistry and veterinary subjects.

Stube was assigned to the 10th Special Forces Group, where he served on several tours of duty throughout the 1990s. In 2001, he became an instructor at the John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center, where he spent four years teaching those who would one day save his life.

While serving in Combat Operations in the Global War on Terror, Stube was wounded in Afghanistan during Operation Medusa. Stube’s A-Team encountered overwhelming numbers of Taliban fighters in The Battle of Sperwan Ghar, which lasted over a week.

Stube’s wounds from a remotely detonated IED and enemy fire seemed fatal, but instead he survived to endure months of hospitalization and surgeries. Huge wounds to his abdomen, hip and pelvis eventually closed, his nearly severed leg was restored, and extensive full-thickness burns were grafted.

Stube has since retired with 23 years of service, to become the host of his own television show on NBC Sports, “Coming Home with Greg Stube.” Since the conclusion of the TV series, public speaking, consulting and charity work have made up the bulk of Stube’s life after the military, with a focus on youth training and development. He currently serves as a leadership presenter for the FBI and the FBI National Academy, in DC and Quantico.

Sgt. 1st Class Stube co-wrote “Conquer Anything, a Special Forces book focuses on leadership. The book is designed to help each of us achieve the highest goals possible in our professional and private lives.

He is the 106th Justice of the Indiana Supreme Court and is now the senior member on the court.  Before being selected for the Supreme Court by Governor Mitch Daniels, he was the Circuit Court Judge in Boone County for 16 years. There he presided over family, criminal, civil and juvenile cases.

His 28 years of active duty and reserve military service has included two post 9-11 deployments and three commands. He was a R.O.T.C. scholarship student and a Distinguished Military Graduate. He earned a RA Commission prior to attending law school. He received numerous medals and awards during his career, including the Defense Superior Service Award, the nation’s third highest non-combat award, a distinction he shares with people like Colin Powell, Norman Schwarzkopf, Jr. and Admiral Harry Harris.

His father served in the U.S. Army Air Corps and the U.S. Air Force. His grandfather served in the U.S. Army and the U.S. Navy. His son also served in the U.S. Army.
