Veteran Advocate

We have a US Army Officer joining our panel representing the Veteran community. While serving he was a company commander during OIF (2001-2004). He was awarded the bronze star medal for his leadership during combat support/disaster recovery operations. During his command, he witnessed high rates of PTSD among his forward deployed soldiers.
