    Hard to imagine him getting PTSD there.

    Alexis spent four years in the Navy, mostly based at the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve in Fort Worth, Texas, before being discharged in January 2011. During that time, he rose to a third class petty officer as an aviation electrician’s mate and received the National Defense Service Medal and the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, which apparently are commonly awarded to military personnel. The reasons behind his discharge are unclear, but a former landlord says Alexis told him he quit because “somebody doesn’t like me.” A Navy official told ABC Alexis’s departure was due to a number of misconduct problems.

    Happy just to be alive
