Luis is a retired Army Captain dealing with physical and psychological wounds from combat. Among the wounds, he copes with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and the stigma attached to them.

Up to 400,000 veterans are currently struggling with PTSD and other psychological and physical issues relating to their service during the conflicts in Iraq. It is not uncommon for veterans suffering with PTSD and TBI to feel like outcasts.
