About Me

My Story

My story began on 9-11-01 and like many American’s 9-11 forever changed our lives but for me being there my path took a very dark turn that over time led to me trying to commit suicide over the guilt of not finding anyone alive after the attack.  As a member of the military getting help or going to counseling was not an option as it would certain mean the end of your career so I thought.  After my attempt, I realized I needed support. I was diagnosed with PTSD, received treatment and I now believe that counseling has made me a stronger man and a stronger Soldier. Since then, I share my story as a suicide survivor in an attempt to inform service members and family members that everyone goes through dark times in their lives wether you are on the battlefield or just driving to work and witness a car accident there are things sometimes you cannot handle and it is ok to ask for help.  I educate people on the importance of family, friends and of the many programs available to help them in their mental health struggles and motivate them to take advantage and control of their life again.  After 31 years in the service and still serving I have seen about it all.  I will always fight to continue to reduce the “stigma” with getting help an issue we see not only in the military but all across our society as a whole.


Telling my "Story of Hope" to soldiers.

Speaking to Soldier's

Speaking with soldiers about asking for help did not hurt my military career it actually made my career better.  Telling my story hopefully helps remove the "stigma" about seeking help when you need it.  I tell them it is ok not to be ok and trust me even if you dont think so you are important to someone.
