Dennis Cadigan returned from Vietnam blinded by an enemy booby trap and addicted to pain medication and heroin. But with the help of family and friends he was able to start anew.
A clinical psychologist with a PhD and a successful private practice, Cadigan started Phoenix Woodworks, his own wood workshop, in 2010 and is working to make it a business owned and operated by other disabled veterans.
