By telling the story behind his service to the country, Dr. (Command Sergeant Major-retired) Elle wants to encourage others to never give up on their dreams and aspirations, especially when times get tough. He is a living testimony to persevering even when the odds are against you. Keep the faith, recognize your worth and keeping pressing on.
