Carlos can now enjoy outings with his grandchildren, which is something he couldn't even do with his own children. And what's amazing to me is that after 43 years of suffering, it only took him 10 weeks of intense training to get his life back. And when I spoke with him, he told me, "I know that I can't get those years back. But at least now, whatever days that I have left on this Earth, I can live them in peace." He also said, "I hope that these younger veterans don't wait to get the help they need." And that's my hope, too.
