Invisible Wounds TSgt Sigmon

Sleep did not come easily in the wake of his first deployment, as the whistling of a mortar shell would often stir Tech. Sgt. Matthew Sigmon in the quietest hours of the night. It was a persistent trauma from an unfinished chapter in his life and a lingering, unseen scar that he bore both in his heart and mind. His heart carried the weight of a moral injury that conflicted with his sense of duty while his mind struggled with the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).(Courtesy Photo)
