Enlisting in the military at 17, Shane Krutchen was on the battlefield watching his brothers take their last breath, while teens his age were about to embark on a new life, sharing the joys of prom and walking across the stage for graduation. After Shane left the battlefield those horrific memories of death followed him and he tried to use drugs and alcohol to get rid of them. When Shane hit rock bottom the Wounded Warrior Project was right there to help him up. Now he carries his brothers on his back and in them he’s found all the reasons he need to excel.
