John Buckley fought for our country, experiencing his first combat at age 18, 40 days after he watched the planes slam into the World Trade Center. John was a member of the U.S. Army’s elite 3rd Ranger Battalion and served from August 2000 through December 2005, earning combat citations and a Purple Heart in deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan. There he suffered Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). In 2009, John’s nightmare as a victim of Kentucky Justice began and now he sits in prison for a crime he didn’t commit because of a prosecution strategy that used his military training against him, leaving him with a sentence of 39 years.
One way that John deals with his day to day life in prison is to share his thoughts and observations through music.
