Like so many young Americans, when David was called to serve his country during the Vietnam War, he went. He left that Southeast Asian nation in 1972, but the war never really left him. David returned home with memories of death and other horrors so troubling that even today, this 71-year-old American hero is tormented by nightmares, night sweats and frequent bouts of deliberating depression.
David’s story is particularly poignant for me. As an active member of the military, I feel a strong connection to those who have served before me.
As chairman of Ursuline Support Services’ board of directors, I am proud to volunteer for an organization helping David and others like him live as normal a life as possible, a life of independence and dignity.
Lt. Col. Adam Zihar
Chairman of the Board, Ursuline Support Services
