My name is Robert Pinkham. I served in the U.S. Army from Jan 4, 2004- Nov 13, 2008. I served two tours in Iraq as a 68W Combat Medic.
During my first deployment, I saw many things I could never have imagined in my wildest nightmares. As a result, I now deal with PTSD every day.
While serving my second deployment, I took a direct hit from an IED, I lost two guys, and suffered a concussion leading to TBI with balance, motor, and dexterity issues, headaches, chronic memory issues, stuttering, and flashbacks.
While I was serving, I married the love of my life, Jane. Together, we have three wonderful children, Brooklynn age 11, Colton age 8, and Jackson age 5. They are my rock, my reason to continue to fight every day to improve my health.
