WENATCHEE — Life has become calmer, safer and less stressful for Chris Goehner since he paired up with Pelé. Goehner, 25, a Wenatchee Valley native now attending Central Washington University in Ellensburg, suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It’s something he picked up while serving two tours as a U.S. Navy corpsman attached to a U.S. Marine Corps emergency room unit in Iraq. He worked as a medic in Kuwait and Iraq in 2004 and 2005, before being diagnosed with PTSD and discharged in 2006.
