When he was 17, Alejandro (Alex) learned to “rebuild from the inside” at Marine Corps boot camp. After multiple deployments and losing both his legs when his Hum-V was blown up, he turned to alcohol to “escape from reality, and nightmares and dreams.” He realized that he was not only hurting himself but his family as well. He got help and is now helping others.
