From the Omaha World Herald 4.16.17
Adam Armstrong knows about conflict – the global kind and the internal kind.
“I went through some struggles, especially when I came off active duty.”
A veteran of the U.S. Air Force, Adam thrived on the purpose and structure that four years of active duty provided – and he spiraled without them.
“When I came home and I disconnected and lost that sense of mission, that’s what really led to a lot of my drinking and alcohol abuse,” he says.
The airman’s awakening came in the form of a car wreck, which led to a call to Alcoholics Anonymous and outreach that connected him with fellow veterans facing the same struggles.
