Veteran's Chapter - Adam Burke

Former Sergeant Adam Burke OIF Combat Disabled:

To look at Adam now, he seems the spitting image of perfect health, both mental and physical. But that is because in his words, "You suck it up and tuck it all away and move on." He still suffers from debilitating migraines that require oxygen and last for days and his shrapnel wounds to his head and body can keep him from working plus PTSD and severe depression.

While Adam was recuperating in California from his wounds from a mortar attack he dreamed of his boyhood home, a blueberry farm. The very farm he joined the Army to get away from. Seven years later this dream farm has come to fruition.
