...Trooper Kyle Kaelberer pulled over onto the right shoulder near Exit 68 of I-84 to assist a motorist with their hazard lights on. Kaelberer found a man in distress, who identified himself as an Army veteran. The man said he was on the phone with a counselor from a suicide prevention hotline for military veterans.

Kaelberer told the veteran he was going to request an ambulance and that the state would cover the cost of it. He then asked the veteran to step out of his truck to talk.

The veteran then asked for a hug and Kaelberer obliged....
