About U.S. Army Sergeant Tyson Cole | Tyson was first deployed to Korea, where he climbed ranks by putting his soul into his craft. During his second deployment, he spent 18 months in Iraq where he served as the Brigade Commander's personal security officer. His job was to ensure there were no imminent safety threats such as enemy contact, IEDs or small arms fire. While on a mission to meet an Iraqi general, Tyson and his unit heard a massive explosion. When they arrived at the scene, they saw a significant loss of American lives. This, along with other graphic wartime experiences, left Tyson with significant Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Despite these incidents, Tyson continued his service until 2012. In addition to PTSD, Tyson was diagnosed with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) after being knocked unconscious by a 60mm mortar while in Baghdad. This resulted in memory loss, migraines and decreased abilities in reading and comprehension. Tyson was awarded several honors during his service including the Combat Infantryman Badge, Army Commendation Medal, Army Achievement Medal, Army Good Conduct Medal, and others.
