Interview of Jonathan Lubecky by Kyle Zachwieja
November 1, 2016
Sgt. Jonathan Lubecky gives a distinct and somewhat rare look into the life of a veteran after returning from overseas deployment. Sgt. Lubecky graduated from the Citadel in 2015 with a degree in Political Science. He served in both the Marine Corps and the Army from 1995 to 2009, with a four-year hiatus from 1999 to 2003. Throughout his service in both branches, he was deployed in active combat zones. This interview gives unique insight into both Sgt. Lubecky’s service and the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder he lives with. Sgt. Lubecky explains how his battles with PTSD inspired him to become involved with Veterans Affairs in politics as an active lobbyist for Veterans.
It is an honor and a privilege to share his story.
