Kevin Byrne - Stories About Living with MS
As a West Point graduate, Kevin Byrne entered into military service as a strong minded and physically fit individual with dreams of anything is possible. He served as a Captain in Army Aviation flying helicopters and commanded a maintenance Cav Troop in Korea. His life changed in 1999 when he started experiencing vision problems and numbness in his arms. The articles below are his stories about "living with MS."
Kevin shares, “I like to think of myself as a strong person. I’m the one who stands straight when dealing with adversity; there to support the ones who ‘really need the help’. My MS proves that’s not true. It reminds me how much I lean on others and how much others carry me, support me and give me the strength to keep moving forward.” We thank him for sharing his personal stories with other Veterans who are living with MS.
