Shaun Coyle was born and raised in Quincy, Illinois. Dedicated to his country, Shaun joined the United States Army, serving from 1998 to 2007. His service included two tours in Iraq and Baghdad. Shaun’s unit was hit with and IED (Improvised Explosive Device) in February 2005. The blast resulted in several injuries, including a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). He suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as well.
In an effort to assist fellow Veterans suffering with PTSD, Coyle turned his military experiences into a book, “A Veteran’s Battle”. Struggling from PTSD, TBI and bipolar disorder, the book took nearly eight years to write. His life torn apart, Shaun was close to suicide when he sought help from the Iowa City VA Hospital. As an author, Shaun hopes that other Veterans may be helped by his story. His book is available on Amazon.
Back in the states, Shaun is a Director with Melaleuca. In May 2017, Shaun received his service dog BOB from Puppy Jake Foundation. Shaun and his wife Cristi live in Batavia, Iowa. Shaun has two children and one on the way.
