Wounded Warrior recalls dark days, bright recovery
Then, Army Staff Sgt. Bernard Lawson suits up in a Level A, total encapsulated chemical suit on Johnston Atoll, circa 2001. Lawson suffered major nerve damage after a response call to VX gas while stationed at the 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.
