From Pattrik Simmons’ article on the KXXV-TV website:

A U.S. Army veteran in Killeen is crediting an auto collision program at Texas State Technical College in Waco for helping him cope with his PTSD.

“I was at a friend’s shop one day, started working on a car, and I realized that my mind, instead of focusing on problems and issues … my mind was at ease,” 34-year-old Hector Corujo said.

Corujo is a 14-year U.S. Army veteran. He did three combat tours in Iraq.
