Anthony Niederriter enlisted in the Marine Corps in the aftermath of September 11th and was deployed to Iraq. Sadly, many in his unit were killed and a large percentage came back with PTSD and mental health issues. Anthony has made it his mission to find ways to better prepare soldiers before they go to war and to help with their recovery once they are home.
Anthony has continued to serve his county in the Air Force Reserve, where he is now a captain, mental health officer and master resilience trainer. He also is a registered nurse at the Cleveland VA Medical Center and holds CSU degrees in nursing and health science.
