This storyboard does not have a description.
The normal daily routine. Restless sleep, cut to 4:15am alarm sounding, wake up, shower, breakfast, pack lunch, drive to work while it's still dark outside.. All in solitude, complete quiet, no sound, music or any other humans or animals in the routine. Periodic flash to first person combat action scenario from military career and deployments.
Runs into fellow Veteran in the gym, they talk about their experiences, what their challenges are on a daily basis, and their feeling of lack of re-assimilation back into society after their military careers. Double-amputee Veteran tells main character about local Veteran's network where they go out to help the needy in their community.
Constantly challenged throughout the day with focusing upon his "meaningless" work, the main character finds himself thinking of how much more he could be doing with his life, helping reconnect with other Veterans who share his struggles. His meeting the man in the gym that morning puts things into perspective. Maybe things aren't as bad as they seem, and maybe there are others out there struggling like he is. Others that he can help.
After work, the main character goes for a run. A run that he runs nearly every day. Most of the time he thinks about the brothers he lost in battle, his constant struggles with fitting in, and even contemplating suicide. This time, he finds himself remembering how he helped his fellow soldiers cope with challenges they faced. He thinks of how much good he has done, and how much more he has to offer.
Inspiration is found through his time alone. He finds that there are many features to himself that can be very helpful, not only to himself, but also to other Veterans struggling to get by. He remembers times where he was helping train new soldiers, how his leadership ability was something that many commended him for. He is now determined to make a positive difference, rather than being at the brink of ending his own life.
Main character finds himself reuniting with a few of his old teammates, learning of what they have been doing since they got out. They hold meetings weekly, assessing those in need, and how to help. Essentially recreating how they used to evaluate and operate missions while in the service. Main character was pulled back from the brink, and finds a new purpose for himself, and helping others.
