Daryl Paulson

Age: 64
Hometown: Bozeman, Mont.
Career: President and CEO, BioScience Laboratories, Inc.
In-country: July 1968-Aug. 1969

In 1991 Daryl S. Paulson, Ph.D., started BioScience Laboratories, Inc., a small antimicrobial product testing firm that now employs 60 people and does business globally. Paulson also has a welding shop and has created a multitude of metal sculptures for public art spaces in Bozeman. Sgt. Paulson served in the 5th Marine Regiment during Operation Taylor Common to clear the An Hoa basin. Shocked by the way vets were treated following the war, he became depressed and suicidal and left college. Thanks to a psychotherapist who worked with him, he quit drinking, returned to school, got his master's degree in medical microbiology, along with a doctorate in psychology, and started his own biological lab. The author of several books, including two on PTSD, Paulson gives back to his community by supporting youth and veterans programs. His book Walking the Point: Male Initiation and The Vietnam Experience is a powerful account of how PTSD healing can occur only when one begins to examine his life authentically and begins to trust himself again.
