Pete Stegemeyer – Army
Pete served as an infantry team leader in the US Army, where he completed 2 year-long combat tours in Afghanistan. After leaving the Army, Pete moved to New York City with his wife and currently works as a cyber security engineer. Pete also is a standup comic and has produced several shows to help raise awareness for mental health and veteran suicide prevention.
“When I was in the army, we weren’t encouraged to talk about our mental health…so I didn’t realize what was happening inside me until I got out of the army and was diagnosed formally with PTSD.”
