Veteran Pursues his dream to become a Chef

Chef David Guzman served in the US Army as a convoy escort in Iraq when his vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb.
It left him with a serious wound to his leg, and multiple injuries. After the attack he went to a Baghdad for treatment,
and returned for duty after his leg healed. To me this speaks of the character of this man, who served our country with
true valor.

He received the purple heart. A month later he was flown home, when he learned that his leg had developed gangrene

and a special group of soldiers. He started experiencing traumatic brain injury and symptoms of post traumatic stress.
