Share Article

Dodge City and Garden City, Kansas celebrate Veterans Day and the 237th Birthday of the United States Marine Corps.

As Founder and President of BioScience Laboratories in Bozeman, Montana, Dr. Paulson is best known by many for his work in skincare research designs, clinical trials, and biostatistics. But there was a time, inspired by his experiences in the military, when he considered a full-time career in Psychology instead.

After serving with the 1st Division, 5 Regiment in the Marine Corps in Vietnam, Daryl Paulson suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and like so many other veterans; he turned to alcohol to escape. Depressed and disinterested in life, ultimately he decided that he needed to make a change. The starting point for that change was seeking out therapy through the VA. Therapy sparked his interest in Psychology and led to his attainment of multiple advanced degrees, including a Doctorate in Human Science and another in Psychology. Dr. Paulson went on to work extensively with Vietnam combat veterans in treating PTSD as well as with family survivors of automobile crashes, terminally ill patients and survivors of traumatic events.

On November 9 and 10, Dr. Paulson will be traveling to Kansas in honor of Veterans Day and the 237th Birthday of the United States Marine Corps to give talks on his two books inspired by his service in Vietnam, Walking the Point and Haunted By Combat. He will be speaking at the Garden City Community College in Garden City, Kansas at 10:30am on November 9, followed by the Dodge City Community College in Dodge City, Kansas at 2:30pm. The events are open to the public and all interested in learning more about PTSD are encouraged to attend. On November 10, Dr. Paulson will speak to Marine Corps Veterans and Active-Duty Marines and their guests at the 237th Birthday of the United States Marine Corps Celebration.
