Injured Army vet thought his combat injuries dashed his dream of opening a construction business. Now he has started a woodworking business with adaptive equipment from Work Vessels for Vets
“Like many veterans with service-connected disabilities, I just wanted to get on with my life after leaving the military. I had an initial dream of starting a large contracting business, but found my TBI, seizures and back injuries were too severe to allow such a huge endeavor. Initially, this was devastating to me,” said Army Infantry Captain Justin Morseth of Bloomington, Indiana. He received the Bronze Star with Combat Valor Device “V” for his service in Iraq in 2003. But he also returned with PTSD and TBI and had trouble readjusting to daily life — his days and nights plagued by nightmares and memories of battle trauma.
“Now I have found a way to still BUILD, but do so on a smaller, more creative scale. I have found renewed hope and am so excited! Thank you thank you thank you, Work Vessels for Vets!! This is such an incredible gift. I can’t thank you enough!” Capt. Morseth has donated these wooden items for a recent Auction with proceeds to Work Vessels for Vets. They were sold for $1750! Thanks, Justin!
