“PTSD got to me so bad, and boom I was homeless. I just kept walking, because I kept watching the sun going west trying to follow the sun. It took me nine years to fix the problem.”

After working at Lockheed, he entered the service and served 3 combat tours, becoming a decorated veteran and achieving the rank of Sergeant first class E-7.
