IamA combat medic, followed by a tour serving insurgents at Guantanamo Bay. I've lost everything due to PTSD, but am slowly recovering. AMA!
I am a former corpsman, forward deployed (I will not discuss specific locations), later assigned to the detention center at Guantanamo Bay. I separated and finished a BS and started medical school. Have had to leave everything behind due to PTSD. Currently working with the wounded warrior project, but unfortunately homeless. Ask me almost anything (some details I simply can not reveal). This is a healing process for me.
Proof will be submitted to mods in the form of my DD214 documenting my service in Operation Enduring Freedom and awarded the global war on terrorism expeditionary medal, pictures of medals, and documentation of combat pay. I'm not sure how else to do it. Mods, if you have suggestions, I'm open to them.
Edit: in order to provide proof, I need to take screenshots and edit out personal info before sending to the mods. Please feel free to ask questions. Will be back in about 20 min to answer.
EDIT 2: Proof sent to mods at 8:43 EST. Waiting on response to see if I need to submit anything else before answering any other questions.
Edit 3: Mods have asked for more info, which I am providing. Should be up and running shortly.
Edit 4: Provided requested extra proof to mods (I think, fuck my iPad) waiting on response.
Edit 5: fuck it, public proof. Personal pictures of me with my ID and service dog have been sent to the mods
Edit 6: Verified by mods. Ask away. The verification process took longer than I thought, so I may finish this up tomorrow night. Thank you all for your questions.
Edit 7: Thank you all sharing this evening with me. I'm heading to bed and getting ready to head to a VA housing unit tomorrow. I'll let you all know how it goes, and will be on tomorrow to answer more questions. Shout out to the Wounded Warrior Project for showing up in my thread. For any of you other vets, please, please, contact them.
