"I almost died," Stone said, adding that the recovery has been brutal.
"It hurts all the time," Stone said.
He says very little about his attackers, but revealed that he spent almost a full day sitting with detectives to work on the suspect sketches released Saturday.
They are the same suspects seen in dark surveillance video stabbing him four times, after what Stone calls a rare night out in Midtown Sacramento.
His neighbors tell CBS Sacramento they're pulling together for him.
"I think that shouldn't happen again and [I] don't like people getting hurt," Carolin Ruzici said.
Stone said he's on extended military leave, at least for the next 60 days. But he says he can't wait to be back.
