Patrick Bradley was deployed to Vietnam as a young man. Upon returning to the US, he faced imprisonment for shattering his doctor’s jaw. His psychiatrist, however, recognized that Patrick suffered from PTSD and suggested instead that Patrick spend three years in the Canadian wilderness locating bald eagles. What Patrick learned can help others recovering from trauma. Guest: Dava Guerin, author of "The Eagle on My Arm: How the Wilderness and Birds of Prey Saved a Veteran’s Life"
