Howard also has a great caregiver who supports him all the way. She understands him and is able to help him cope with different situations.

Warriors to Summits will give Howard a better approach to trusting people and his surroundings. It will also give him the tools to understand what we all go through on a daily basis as a wounded soldier. In addition, he hopes it will give him the tools to beware, take charge of his symptoms and control his symptoms. The most important is how to stay alive and to find balance. This program will also give Howard a support line. With all that he has endured, he is and will always be proud he was able to defend and fight for our country.
