U.S. Army Adam Campbell served in Iraq. He suffered severe injuries after a roadside bomb and a grenade blast within minutes of each other. He couldn't walk for several months. He is one of 23 other veterans wounded physically or mentally selected to have a brighter future.
"It takes those skills we learned in the military and builds upon them and makes them stronger and makes us go forward," says Michael Shull, Army veteran.
The program is called Warriors to Workforce. Students take classes at Mount Saint Mary's University and after they graduate they are guaranteed a job with a Veterans Affairs office.
It's a three year program. The veterans take university courses to help them in business and decision making.
There were more than 100 applicants for the program and they were chosen for their ambition and backgrounds. Some of the students are also decorated with Purple Hearts and Bronze Stars. For Michael, he said it's been a blessing not only for him but also his mother who has helped him every step of the way.
"I'm very proud," says Rebecca Shull, Michael's mother. "It's been a long hard road. He's been really good making ground."
"She hasn't given up on me even through the bad times," says Michael.
