Lieutenant Tommy Bolin is a 27 year veteran in the fire service near Columbus, OH. He has served faithfully and well near the community that he grew up in and has loved his whole life.
Tommy is the prototypical fireman … loving, caring, tough, strong, the life-of-the-party.
But, a major part of his story was that he kept hidden was his battle with anxiety, depression and PTSD. Like many other firefighters, alcohol became a major coping mechanism, and it led him down some very dark roads. For many years, he suffered in silence.
