Sergeant Leslie Zimmerman Joined the Army right out of high school at age 18. Serving as a medic, she deployed to support Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003. When returning to civilian life, Leslie was diagnosed with PTS and depression. Through counseling and medication, supplemented with mountain-bike riding, running and with lots of support from her husband and children, Leslie keeps going through the grief and heartache. In 2016, she published an inspirational children’s book called Dream Big!
