Isaac Torres and Bobby Mathias

Isaac Torres and Staff Sgt. Bobby Mathias paint their backgrounds for the day's assignment. This new course just for soldiers utilizes art therapy as a tool to improve both physical and mental health problems. OJ Shoulderblade says that this is a good place for soldiers to talk openly about their experiences without fear of being judged.
