La Crosse, WI (WXOW) He joined the Army National Guard following 9/11.
He served in Iraq, twice, as a combat infantry member, but not long after Anthony Anderson returned home, he found himself in a dark place. He says, he was simply unable to process what he had just been through.
When life was at its most difficult, Anderson received a call from Tom Voss someone he had served with. What the two did together, a 2,700 mile walk from Wisconsin to California, changed their lives. Their experience also became the focus of a documentary called “Almost Sunrise – Hope is on the Horizon.” The film follows Anthony and Tom during their trip.
Today, Anderson lives in Kewaskum, Wisconsin with his wife and daughter where he says, he has a good life. His advice to others who need assistance – be active in your recovery.
