Doc Strauser admittedly had a tough time coming back from Afghanistan. He was going through a divorce and freely admitted that if he were stil back in his home state of Missouri he would be unemployed and homeless, probably crashing on relative's couches. His story is all too familiar for our men and women returning from war. Homelessness, joblessness, addiction and alcoholism are issues discussed in this column in the past. But Doc did not succumb. He is a quiet, well-spoken man, polite to a fault like so much of our military. He told me about Freedom Station that is part of the San Diego based Warrior Foundation. More than just happy for the opportunity to be part of ten men that are in attendance there, he speaks glowingly about the volunteers and particularly Sandy Lehmkuhler. Freedom Station is transitional housing for Veterans that are injured, physically, emotionally or otherwise. They do not discriminate in trying to provide an environment where someone can come to grips with their injuries, or decompress while transitioning to mainstream life. They pay rent, albeit at a reduced rate, but they get lots of help with the everyday necessities of life like clothing, toiletries, pots and pans, even a couch or a bed. Doc says, "the camaraderie among the men at Freedom Station is healing in itself." Th ey can be there for up to six months or more if approved by the board. He is so impressed by the transitional housing concept, that Kevin "Doc "' Strauser he wishes more were available because a lot of men would benefit. Doc Strauser is not idling in his time at Freedom Station. He's landed a great job as a clinical lab supervisor for Millennium Laboratories, a firm whose mission is to alleviate pain and suffering with methods other than the current pain medications such as "oxy", which he knows has had terrible effects on his wounded comrades. He January 11, 2012 is particularly proud of his kids, one of which is now an officer LTJG in the Navy. He told me "the Warrior Foundation is not just a group going for donations, they become your friend. They are there to help you live and heal and everyone there has a good heart and is willing to do anything to help you." He freely expressed his love and gratitude to Sandy and Brian Lehmkuhler and he hopes that he will be in a position to support them forever. Sunday, February 5th, 0700 the Sons of the American Legion will hold their annual "Wounded Warrior" breakfast to raise funds for the Warrior Foundation.
