Danny O’Neel – Army
Danny served in the US Army for 7 years as a 13F. After 2 back to back deployments to Iraq, he left the Army with PTSD and a TBI. He lost 9 friends on his last deployment — and since then 15 to suicide. He was almost one of them. His road to healing has been long and arduous, but he refuses to quit. Today, he serves as a peer mentor and motivational speaker.
“Things don’t always go the way you see in your head, and it led to a lot of dark thoughts and memories about guilt and shame, things I wish I could’ve done differently.”
