Michael served in the USMC. He was medically discharged after suffering a back injury during ODS. He also has significant hearing loss and tinnitus as a result of his time overseas. He struggles with the loss of one of his friends who committed suicide and for many years he has tried to hide his issues from the rest of the world. His anxiety, sleeplessness, irritability and guilt have since come to light and he is ready to deal with everything for the sake of his wife and daughter. Michael is diagnosed with PTS, Chronic Low Back Injury and Hearing Loss.

CHEVERLY will help Michael by alerting to sounds, interrupting his behaviors, anchoring when he is anxious and by retrieving items when he cannot move due to his back injury.
