Armor Down

Good morning beautiful people, Armor Down is the name of an organisation started by my school friend, Ben King, after his time at war in Iraq.

This work became his purpose after suffering from severe post traumatic stress disorder, including chronic pain, insomnia and the inability to manage overwhelming emotions.
