"MY VICTORY WAS LEARNING TO FEEL HUMAN AGAIN." - Jason Barbiere

When Jason left the military, his hyper-vigilance left him feeling that nowhere was safe. Without his brothers-in-arms, he felt alone. Returning to the civilian world, he felt like his life “went from safety to chaotic.”

With support from DAV, he’s learning to live with his PTSD. He’s discovered that he’s not alone and has found the strength in himself to believe that he can do anything. Today, Jason works to inspire his fellow veterans to see their true potential.
