“The day I got blown up is the first day that comes to mind.”

Tylor Willis

Tylor Willis was a Corporal E-4 who served with the U.S. Marines in Afghanistan in the Battle of Sangin. He was awarded a Purple Heart. While in combat, he wondered how life could be different. Maybe he could worry about passing or failing a test “instead of getting my head shot off.” Now he’s a business finance major at the University of Montana willing to tell his story.
