Herschel Walker SpeakerFormer NFL running back and current mixed martial arts fighter Herschel Walker delivered an inspirational speech emphasizing positive thinking and faith during Fort Belvoir’s Suicide Prevention Stand Down Day.

The 1982 Heisman Trophy winner spoke to community members about recovering from anger issues, behavioral problems and depression at Fort Belvoir’s Community Center, urging audience members to think positive and to not be ashamed to ask for help.

Walker suffered from a multiple personality illness called Dissociative Identity Disorder, developing multiple personalities to suppress the trauma of being bullied during his childhood.

Col. Gregory D. Gadson, a Fort Belvoir garrison commander, congratulated Walker for overcoming his problems and sharing his experiences to inspire Army personnel, noting, “He is just a tremendous man with a tremendous testimony.”

Walker spent 12 years playing in the NFL with four different teams, including the Dallas Cowboys, and ended his career as the ninth all-time in all-purpose yards and 36th all-time in career rushing yards. Today, he is an MMA fighter and also took time to teach mixed martial arts fighting techniques to Soldiers in the Fort Belvoir Warrior Combatives Training Center.

In his speech, Walker remarked, “Let’s not put off something that we can do right now. We’re blessed and when we’re blessed we can go do whatever we want. You got to tell yourself ‘I love who I am.’ Today I say, ‘I love Herschel Walker.’
