I’m Maj. Ed Pulido, United States Army,
retired. We had just finished a mission and, as I was driving, I hit an IED. I experienced
post-traumatic issues related to the experience. And then when they took my leg away, I actually
thought about taking my life. What changed was I began to reach out for support and to
think about all these things need to be talked about. And so I began my recovery and to see
that my life wasn’t over and that I could conquer my challenge.
