Wounded Warrior recalls dark days, bright recovery
Then, Army Staff Sgt. Bernard Lawson working with a team of CBRN specialist to establish the first patient decontamination team at Brooke Army Medical Center on Fort Sam Houston, Texas, circa 2003. Lawson was at BAMC recovering from major nerve damage to his right side after a routine response call to VX gas at Johnston Atoll, a former chemical, weapons storage and demilitarization site. Through hard work and help from others, like Wounded Warriors, he continues to recover and is currently the emergency manager for the Air Force Installation and Mission Support Center.
