That is me 20 years ago. They told me I would have great adventures, they told me I would be part of the elite. Those things are true.
What they did not tell was how it would impact me and others mentally. Potentially altering our lives forever. Veteran suicide rates are rising, and we lose over 20 veterans a day to suicide.
I want to do my part and help guide them through rough times. I have been accepted to a PhD program for Clinical Psychology. My concentration will focus on PTSD and Veteran issues.
I have an associate’s degree, bachelor’s degree, and an MBA. I have worked very hard to get here. To get to the next level of my dream, I need funds. I have already amassed too much student debt. I am a husband, a father, a professional, and a veteran.
I believe I can help our lost veterans and others ailing with mental illness.
