Technical Sergeant (Ret.) Patrick Young deployed more than 30 times as an F-16 crew chief to forward operating bases around the world. He retired from active duty in 2007. 

After Young left the military, he tried many different jobs, but quickly learned he suffered from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Not knowing how to cope with PTSD and feeling his life was spiraling out of control, Young was involved a car accident while driving home from work. As Young laid on the ground outside his vehicle, he said he didn't know if he was going to live. But, he prayed and asked for help to get him back on his feet.
