MSgt Mark Johnson, USAF (ret.)

Mark is an Air Force veteran, who retired as a Master Sergeant after 20 years of active service. He is diagnosed with PTS. Mark deployed to both Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as serving missions in many other undisclosed locations. He suffers from nightmares, panic attacks and hypervigilance. He also experiences survivor’s guilt, knowing many that didn’t make it home. He isolates from people and places that he once enjoyed, and no longer spends quality time with his wife because he does not want to leave the house.

Mark and DELLA met in December 2017 and it was a match made in heaven! DELLA will assist Mark by interrupting negative behaviors, anchoring when he is anxious, and also alerting him to people walking up behind him in order to reduce his startle reflex.
