Video: Veteran pays it forward after own struggle

Tyler Thompson

After tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, Tyler Thompson returned home with PTSD. Now he wants to help veterans get the care they deserve.

A retired sergeant is giving back to his fellow soldiers after fighting a battle he never expected.

The Veteran and Military Center at Wright State University’s Allyn Hall is the most likely place you will find Tyler Thompson. The junior at Wright State University is continuing his transition from soldier to student and helping others accomplish the same.

But life after the military brought a new battleground where he was never prepared to fight. “I thought I was the only one,” said Thompson.
