Seven years ago, Veteran Sgt. Andrew Clary's job was made for him: the bodyguard for the men's basketball team and Coach Jim Boeheim. Clary says his Air Force training has prepared him for the pressure of this position.

Sgt. Andrew Clary opens the door to his office wearing a 2016 NCAA Men's Basketball Final Four shirt. He sits at a desk covered in badges and coins collected from all the places he has traveled. On his wall hangs a signed Joe Montana picture, and lying next to it is his Syracuse basketball backpack.

Clary is in charge of special events for the Department of Public Safety at Syracuse University, which, among other things, makes him the traveling security guard for the men’s basketball team. More specifically, he is the security guard for Coach Jim Boeheim.

Combat Paper Redux encourages creative expression to help veterans cope with war experiences.

During the height of the Iraq War, many veterans were looking for a release when they came home -- a way to deal with the stress of combat and to cope with any trauma.

Out of frustration came the Combat Paper Project in Burlington, Vt. The project began when Drew Cameron, an Iraq War veteran, cut his uniform from his body, turned the cloth into pulp and created paper from it.
