Chad is a former Force Recon Marine and DoD Contractor with eight deployments to Afghanistan as part of a Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) Task Force. Chad founded the Mighty Oaks Foundation, a leading non-profit, serving the active duty, military veteran and first responder communities around the world with highly successful faith-based combat trauma and resiliency programs. Having spoken to over 450,000 active-duty troops and led life-saving programs for over 4,500 active military and veterans at four Mighty Oaks Ranches around the Nation, Chad has become a go-to resource and is considered a subject matter expert on faith-based solutions to PTSD, having advised the former Presidential Administration, Congress, the VA, the DoD, and was appointed to serve as the Chairman of a White House Veterans Coalition.
Chad is also the Co-Founder of Save Our Allies, a non-profit with the mission focused on the evacuation and recovery of Americans, our allies and vulnerable people trapped in Afghanistan. Save Our Allies began as a personal quest for Chad, as he set out to rescue his long-time friend and Afghanistan interpreter, but the mission quickly evolved because of Chad’s compassion for people and his servant heart, ultimately resulting in the safe evacuation of over 17,000 people that were trapped in Afghanistan. Chad and his team are also currently conducting operations into Russian-occupied Ukraine.
Chad is a bestselling author and has written a number of books related to veteran care and overcoming life’s challenges, donating over 250,000 copies to the troops during his resiliency speaking tours. He is regularly featured on national media outlets. His most recent book, “Saving Aziz: How the Mission to Help One Became a Calling to Rescue Thousands from the Taliban” is the story of rescuing his Afghan interpreter and close friend following the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan and eventually 17,000 more people trapped in that country.
JSOC Combat Interpreter & Facilitator
Mighty Oaks Foundation
Aziz is an Afghan native who served as a combat interpreter & facilitator for the United States Special Operations community during military operations in Afghanistan. Aziz quickly became a well-rounded, highly sought after interpreter within the special operations community and was selected to serve as part of the premiere Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) for nearly a decade. During his time as a combat interpreter, Aziz served side-by-side with Chad Robichuax during 8 JSOC deployments, ultimately saving his life countless times as well as those around him.
Aziz was born to face adversity and has a strong sense of duty to both family and country. Aziz chose to work alongside the US military because he had prosperous dreams for his beloved Afghanistan and countrymen. He wanted his children to grow up with endless opportunities that freedom offers by fighting alongside an America who had committed to eradicating the Taliban and their oppression and evil acts to humanity. However, following the US withdrawal from Afghanistan, Aziz and his family faced persecution for his efforts in helping America and he and his family’s life was in peril. This withdrawal sparked a multinational coalition by Chad Robichaux to rescue his longtime interpreter turned brother from Afghanistan.
After over 15 years of service to the United States, a daring rescue operation to save his family, 8 long months in a UAE Humanitarian Center, and a 17 hour flight, Aziz is now on the very soil that he helped defend for so long. Aziz may be an Afghan by birth, but he is as much an American and patriot as anyone else. As Aziz starts his new life as a Texan, he serves as the cultural advisor for Mighty Oaks International. Aziz also speaks 5 languages, to include: Pashtu, Persian/ Dari, Urdu, Arabic and English which will be extremely beneficial to the Mighty Oaks International mission moving forward.
