Perspective from Lonnie Gaudet

Lonnie Gaudet joined the Army in 2009. Within a month of landing in Afghanistan Lonnie was in his first IED explosion that resulted in brain trauma.

The second IED explosion, six months later, resulted in the loss of his right leg.

Lonnie talks about recovery, sports, family, and friends on the road to recovery since his discharge in August 2012. He offers some advice for those suffering from post-traumatic stress and depression. He finds his clarity within his solid family unit, and by recognizing when he is angry without cause.
