Pat served in the Army during the Vietnam War. As a medic, he was affected by the numerous injuries he treated and the stressful environment. Later, he had his first panic attack. He tried to bury his feelings. He drank heavily and wanted to end his life. He found resources for support at VA to become sober and turned his life around.
