Fantastic interview with Michael Schlitz by Chuck Williams of the Ledger-Enquirer. Must-watch!
You probably don't know Michael Schlitz.
But you should.
Eight years ago, Schlitz -- a U.S. Army sergeant assigned to the 10th Mountain Division in Baghdad -- almost died in a roadside attack.
He was burned beyond recognition, lost both hands and partial sight. The three soldiers in the vehicle with him were killed.
Today, Schlitz lives in southern Harris County and travels the country telling his story of service and survival.
He can talk candidly about suicide because he has contemplated it. He can talk about pain after 83 surgeries.
He recently sat down with Ledger-Enquirer reporter Chuck Williams and shared his remarkable story.
