Stratford University: Baltimore Helps Soldier Reinvent Himself As A Chef

Wounded warriors used to being on the front lines are taking their skills to the kitchen.

A new mission for 50-year-old Army veteran Clifton Hoffler.

“I saw some things, some soldiers got killed so now for me, I’ve got to come back and not keep living where I’ve been,” he said.

A retired staff sergeant, Hoffler fights a daily battle with PTSD. “We have been through a lot. When you come back, people don’t know how to accept you; people don’t know how to deal with you,” he said. So he’s putting his energy toward a new career in culinary arts.
