In the words of Dr. Daryl S. Paulson:
"When I graduated from high school I did not know what I wanted to do, so I joined the U.S. Marine Corps. I passed the entrance test for a Vietnamese language course and was sent to Washington, D.C. for 47 weeks to learn the Vietnamese language. In the summer of 1968, I was sent to Vietnam where I was assigned to the 1st Marine Division, 5th Marine Regiment at An Hoa Combat Base. I do not know how I survived the 13 months, but I did. It was very, very bad. In 1969, I came home and started college. While in college, I came down with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). I could only drink and suffer, drink and suffer.
I also have a hearing loss from all the explosions that went off around me. The PTSD and the hearing loss resulted in a 50% disability. I founded this company, which is now a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business."
