My Story
Since the show I have been going to school at ITT Tech majoring in criminal justice with new dreams of becoming a special agent in the DEA, ATF, or any of the other federal agencies. I am in the process of moving to Louisville to be closer to school. I attend PTSD group therapy every Thursday doing whatever I can do to help myself continue to get better. I am in the gym most of my free time trying to improve my health and to prepare myself for a career in federal law enforcement. And I have been spending time with my family and my girl friend. I also work part time at the VA as a work study.
