Air Force veteran deployed in support of operation Iraqi freedom 2006 injured from an IED blast July 2006. Some Awards and Decs. Of mine are Purple Heart, army commendation, Air Force combat action badge, meritorious unit award, humanitarian service, air expeditionary service ribbon with gold border. I am a avid outdoorsman and am currently majoring in psychology to assist veterans who suffer like myself from PTSD. I hope to be there to help them and reach out to them to let them know they are not alone.
