Redefining Wingman

David Ortiz

My brother has always been one of my best friends. He was my wingman in good times and in many scrapes.

David Ortiz, a US Army helicopter pilot, nearly lost his life when his helicopter crashed because of engine failure while on a combat mission in Afghanistan. His road through recovery and rehabilitation was met with hardship as he tried to navigate the VA health system. His brother Mike put his own life on hold and stayed by David’s side.
