Ben prevented two terror attacks against civilian targets. He shot one terrorist and gave chase to another that escaped in a different direction. He chased the terrorist into a house where he found 5 rocket-propelled grenades and 2 launchers that, intelligence later learned, were supposed to be used that evening. Since then, he has suffered from severe PTSD including sometimes crippling OCD. He has taken to actively seeking treatment to heal himself.
