Rick joined the Canadian army right out of high school. He was a dad at age 19 and a paratrooper at 20. He served with the coalition forces during Gulf War I in Kuwait and was a veteran of war by the time he turned 21.
But “something was wrong” shortly after his return from Kuwait. For over a decade, Rick suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder and its destructive effects on his life. Then, he heard a story.
Gulf War veteran Rick joins us to share his story and his thoughts about Posttraumatic Stress Disorder.
