Army Captain Luis Carlos Montalvan came home from two tours of duty in Iraq with the Combat Action Badge, two Bronze Stars, and the Purple Heart. He also returned with a damaged back, a blown-out knee, severe head injuries, blinding headaches, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
After his return to the states, the pressuress exacted their toll. Montalvan began drinking too much, he lost his marriage, he fell victim to agoraphobia. That was before Tuesday.
Tuesday is a golden retriever, a service dog trained to assist the disabled. Montalvan didn’t know it at the time, but Tuesday had had a difficult history, as well.Now Montalvan tells their story — two wounded warriors who found and healed each other — in his book “Until Tuesday.”
