I’ve been through the program, and believe it is necessary to help the men&women who have selflessly served our communities and Country.
Nearly 8 years ago, Zeke was significantly injured in a Chinook Helicopter crash while serving in the Army in Afghanistan.
Although he’s overcome much adversity, many obstacles still remain. It’s too easy to forget how severe his injuries were because he is not currently fighting for his life from a hospital bed or no longer sitting in a wheelchair unable to walk or wearing a stabilizing belt for balance.
Today most of his wounds are invisible wounds. He struggles with the simple things people take for granted, and like many humans do, he hides the embarrassing side effects of TBI & PTSD.
He looks fit but the injuries while healed on the outside, the remain inside.
The Program offered Zeke a community of support, and encouraged him to be vulnerable, open and transparent with others. The coping techniques he learned help him manage the triggers and stresses caused by TBI and PTSD. Zeke believes in real-life hands on support, and a program such as this is saving lives every day.
Zeke has been through the program, and believes it is necessary and our duty to help the men and women who have selflessly served our communities and Country.
